28 Parent Reviews for Cornwall Central High School

I went to CCHS for all of high school (graduated 2012). It's thoroughly mediocre - pretty standard for a public school of its size. It generally just lacks opportunities - opportunities that tend to really make a difference for college. There were only a few AP classes, and I felt that electives were ...  Read more

we were so outraged by the high school that we moved in the middle of the school year to the city. Yes to the city and in a public high school. It was a HUGE sacrifice for us but we could not stand to see our child being so unhappy. They don't encourage creativity and every thing is memorization. My ...  Read more

Wow, these comments are really dim. Has anything improved this year? How is the music dept? We are considering moving to Cornwall from across the river, however, I'm not encouraged by these comments...

I'm a student at CCHS and i absolutely HATE it. The only up in my day is Orchestra and that's about it. Even my dad agree's that Cornwall is a Sports town. It will always be Sports > Arts. I don't even know who the new principal even is. The teachers who have a tenure could care less, yes there are teachers ...  Read more

I'm going to tell you a little bit about us Dragons. A lot of people say we are overrated, rich, white kids who only care about sports and like to party A LOT.

Hello, My daughter is in seventh grade and is an honors student. I am debating sending her to Cornwall versus a private school. Certainly Cornwall would be much easier. Can any of you comment on the AP courses and the college placement for the last 2 years. I have heard that over the last few years ...  Read more

This school is for the average student. If you or your child is an over-achiever, then I would suggest a private school. This is one of the best public schools in the area, however, the grades for AP classes are not as weighted as much as other schools. This means that you or your child would have a ...  Read more

I agree with the last comment. This school is over rated. They don't challlenge the students. Their way of teaching is based on memorization. The teachers don't seem to care as they have tenure. The College guidance counselor could not care less. This is very lamentable given the amazing campus they ...  Read more

I am unfortunately stuck in a school too preoccupied with sports to care about academics. If you are not an overachiever and are an average student, you'll fit right in. I have been told that this school does not cater to the higher end of the student spectrum (aka, those who are preoccupied with actually ...  Read more

Very average school. teachers not supportive. a big disappointment given the taxes. The sciences program is low quality. only the language / history and art were satisfying.
