Not a good school for anyone but up-and-coming KKKlan members. I wish I could give no stars.

I LOVE CHS! I was one of the students in the first graduating class! Ms. Julie is an angel and i dont know where I would be in life right now without this amazing educational institution. CHS has prepared me to succeed in life and to make the right decision in attending college!
