No school is perfect, but I felt the need to balance the ONE review (2 stars) with something that reflects the other side. My high school senior has had a wonderful experience at CHS. The teachers are caring and really wanted to see my child succeed. I was worried about the size of the school, but the class size was not an issue. I feel that CHS teachers, admin, coaches, etc. have done a great job in preparing their students for the real world. Thank you!!!

Good AP program, otherwise the quality is lacking. Bullying is a problem, fights are frequent. There is a recurring problem in the non AP classes of students who are disruptive and often openly defiant of teachers. Some of the teachers there should not be in the teaching profession, period. There are good teachers there, but the overall environment is a problem.
