I thouroulghy enjoy school at Caldwell High. Over all, the atmosphere put on by the administration is hands down amazing. It's very evident that my teachers care for my well being in and outside of school. Not to mention, most of the students are very respectful and are well behaved. I couldn't ask for a better public school environment to grow up in!

Caldwell high school has given me the opportunity to take college courses which gives me college credit and has provided me with a variety of AP courses. One thing I would like to see changed in this high school would be the opportunities for more medicine classes, and to be able to take both Pharmacy Tech and/or CNA/EMT in the same year instead of separately. I would also like to see more involvement with the community, even tho the involvement is well-balanced now, it wouldn’t hurt to get more students to help out with the community as well.
Caldwell High School is a wonderful school-for certain people. Being centered in a small town, it is by no means diverse or well funded. For students interested in careers in the health science, medical, or agricultural fields, it has excellent certification and qualification programs. However, there are holes in the school's infrastructure caused by lack of funding and the general atmosphere of a small town. Sports tend to be prioritized over fine arts. No dual credit classes are offered in science, although they are offered in English, Social Studies, Mathematics, and Foreign Language fields. Minimal electives are offered, including in the area of foreign language credits (Spanish is the only class offered). While CHS is strong in personal relations and certain fields of study, it can be difficult for minority ethnicities and beliefs, and it lacks the overall well-roundedness of many schools which are better funded and less rural.
