Rating 3 out of 5 14 reviews
I really like Cairo High because I previously came from a large school where I didn't get noticed or the same benefits that a small school entails. Overall it's a nice school, but like every other school it has it's issues as well.
I graduated from CJSHS in 2005 although we were limited to things such as subject like art chore Spanish and even band for a small amount of time my overall experience there was great. The community is family oriented and we had teachers that really cared about their jobs as well as the students. After graduating I went on to college and at shawnee community college and then to SIUC. There are somethings that may could be changed to better the schools but what school is prefect our children this year along out of 26 students 22 will be going to college and have a very bright future ahead of them just like the many others who has graduated from CJSHS and is successful I feel the school should have at least a B because the lack of resources and opportunities that our students lack
I recommend it as the staff working there is very active and there's a lot of activities that involves in the school
I liked that Cairo High School was a place for the kids to come together as one and stick together. When I was a freshman the sports were my favorite things to watch. They had a great boys and girls basketball team. The soft ball and track teams were also put together well. Over the years the school has changed and became out of control. I am now a senior and Cairo high school shows favoritism and much more. I would really like to see the school change back into the school where children could be themselves and not have to act like someone else.
What I liked about Cairo High were the people i met and how the influenced me to be better. What i would like to see change is organization .
Generally there aren't any clubs but, if you wanted to start one you could it would just be hard to find faithful participants. The superintendent is very support of change and making the school better as a whole.
My overall experience has been horrible and I can not wait to move. The staff tries but, there is no structure at all. I can never focus on lessons due to disruptions and chaos that occurs daily. The assessments display inaccurate results and I just feel like no one cares about anything that goes on.
I often feel like my educational intelligence is deteriorating as time progresses. I am passionate about learning and not being able to has made me hate going to school. A place I once loved has turned into a place I don't desire to go. That's why I'm excited for college because I'll actually learn essentials.
we barely have security guards now.
I honestly think as a overall there are some wonderful teachers and teaching skills. They tend to teach all ways possible for different learners. I have a couple of teacher who instead of doing test choose Socratic seminars which is a discussion on a specific topic.
I like that we still have honor programs such as beta club its just that Cairo high only take interest into basketball.
I wouldn't trade my experience at all. This is my new home. I hope one day I can become a teacher, principal, or superintendent and help my school acheive higher goals, and better communicate. Ghandi once said " You must be the change you wish to see in the world." That is what I hope to do. <3
