School Reviews

  • Recommended September 12, 2012 - It has a great facility. I enjoyed my four years at CHS. The teachers take pride in their job, and want the students to learn. They other a number of extracurricular activities. It has everything you would look for in a school. My brother is a current student and he likes the classes and activities offered to him. - Posted by Student/Alumni
