CHS has been the best school I have went to. They have mentors that are the teachers that have all helped me. But all of this would of never offered happened with out my principal. Mr. John he has all so helped me with my grades and with bullying I was a very shy girl before I came to CHS but all of the staff helped me out of my shell. And I am happy to call my self at home with the Larto Panthers.
