Cairo High is a great school and they prepare you for college! Also I made many friends and memories at this school. The teachers and guidance councilors there help you out so much with your school work and submitting your work for college!

Cairo High School is surrounded by a very supportive community. The dual-enrollment program has flourished at Cairo High, and the vocational programs have progressed leaps and bounds. However, if academics are concerned, Cairo High does not compete with surrounding school systems. There are some AMAZING teachers at CHS, but, due to lack of resources and outdated equipment, there are many handicaps to the effectiveness of these great educators.
Cairo high school is filled with inadequate teachers who have no study in the field they are teaching. This combined with the monstrous 30+ student classes make a chaotic learning environment. Most of the information you learn at the school is self-taught and is general information. Those who genuinely seek an education opt to take dual-enrollment classes, which are college classes offered during high school. Though the academic rigor is only slightly higher because the college is a local technical college, it provides some redeeming qualities such as the ability to graduate with an AA as well as your high school diploma.
