CHS may be a great public high school choice for gifted self-motivated honors students. There are plenty of those students there. They are mostly white and wealthy.

We have had two children who both attended CHS, one graduated with honors the other did not feel safe after the first year after being solicited and then threatened by another student.

The academic programs and the extracurricular activities are really good. The orchestra is large and have recently obtained the title of Grand Champions for the cruise festival they embarked on in March-April 2005. The orchestra program is excellent.

I am currently attending CHS. The school has a rich diversity that the other area schools lack. This year, I'm enrolled into advanced and honors classes. The school turns 30 this year, and a lot of renovations are being done this summer. I can't wait to go back in late August and see what it looks like! ...  Read more

* In 2011-2012 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Course tests to assess students in reading, writing, math, science and history/social science subjects at the end of each course, regardless of the student's grade level. The SOL End-of-Course tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
