Cairo-Durham High School Reviews
Cairo-Durham High School was much like any other high school. The faculty and staff is what sets Cairo-Durham apart from every other high school. Many of the teachers genuinely cared about how their students were doing in and out of school. While they couldn't do much about how their students were out of school, teachers would make themselves readily available all throughout the school day, after school, and on weekends via email. Without the courtesy and generosity of the teachers, I do believe that many students would have ended up staying back a year. Teachers pushed us to be our best selves, and that's the most that anyone could ever ask for.
Cairo-Durham High School is the typical school that, upon first glance, may seem to deserve two stars for its old, mundane design and structure. However, the educational opportunities within are infinite for the most eager-to-learn students and challenging for the most scholarly. With new building updates that will be implemented in the coming years and course opportunities that are constantly expanding, Cairo-Durham High School is the exemplar of an educational institution that facilitates both College and Career Readiness and the critical thinking required in the modern world.
I was able to take advanced placement and college courses while in Hugh school, which was nice. The food selection was terrible, many items are outdated and produce isn’t fresh. I had to pay for water because the water from the fountains is not always consumable. The administration was constantly changing and seemed to be out of touch with the students.
