Over the past four years of attending Cambridge High School, I have felt at home. There were times when I felt I was in an excellent learning environment, and cared for by my teachers. I believe that the teachers and staff at CHS truly want the best for their students. I am the type of kid who loves to go to school, and the environment they offer is very enjoyable. I'm not going to lie, some times I felt as though I wasn't getting the proper learning experience, but at the end of the day I was happy to attend CHS.
I think there could be some better teachers there. As well as some more information on colleges and vocational school.
My experience with Cambridge High School was extremely positive. all of my teachers were supportive of my dreams. They challenged me to be the best student and person I can be.
So far in my high school career, I have had a very good experience. For the most part, the teachers at my school are very good and care about how their students do. Personally, I believe that our academics could be more diverse and give more options to all types of students, but due to a lack of funding I know that that would not be east for the Cambridge city school district to do. There are a lot of clubs at our high school, but in order to be in them you have to be dedicated to help getting funding. The administrators are open to new ideas and activities at the school, but they are up front about the fact they will have to be mostly self-sufficient because the school will not be able to entirely fund it. The schools themselves are very nice and they are well kept. I personally have enjoyed my experience so far in the Cambridge City School District.
I liked the commitment some of the teachers had for their jobs and for their students. I think some things, such as, safety and regulations should be revised so the students feel more comfortable going to school every day.
I became a student here my junior year of high school. I felt my education there wasn't challenging enough due to AP classes being removed.
This is just your average public school. Kids smoke weed in the bathrooms. Parents are mad about the way teachers go about teaching. Teachers are normally coaches for some varsity sport. All administration cares about is the next big game. And no one is prepare for college so most kids don't go.

What I like about Cambridge High School is the feeling of being in a big family. Everyone in the school, including staff, were willing to help if you needed it. The education I received was excellent, in my opinion. The classes were challenging, and built strength to persevere.
The faculty at Cambridge High School are extremely likeable, except for the few outliars. This would have been a 5 star review had the school not lost money and cut a lot of classes. For example, AP classes are far and few between, Woodshop, Metalworking, and Other art classes no longer exist (we have one art room and one art teacher, but music and band classes still exist), and the only other foreign language offered is Spanish. You are very limited in what classes you can take academically. Overall though, I like the school and it's system.
The thing that I like about my school is the friendliness of the staff and students. I rarely, if ever saw bullying in the schools, and the teachers would be more than willing to help you through anything, school- or non-school-related. I absolutely loved my time with the music opportunities there. Another thing that I appreciated was the fact that my vice principal is an adamant christian. There were, however, some difficulties within the school. There were, of course, students who gathered together to brawl or smoke. They did this mainly to show superiority, but the staff members stopped these events whenever they had the chance.
I enjoyed my first three years. However, I wouldn't go back to senior year if I had the chance. I was constantly stressed and had some issues with some of the staff, but they no longer remain at the school either. I was ready to end my senior year. I wasn't really sad to leave. I do miss the very few great teachers and advisers I had though. The ones that helped me cope and get through senior year in one piece.
The food at my school has been getting better. They always keep salads on deck for vegetarians, but that's it. It's not really too unhealthy and some of it is kind of good. I don't like how the vegetables are always soaked in butter though.
My school is very safe, at least I feel it is. We had a couple false bomb threats and a gas leak last year, and all 3 incidents were handled with extreme professionalism and speed. Everyone was evacuated quickly and smoothly until the issues were resolved. Also, we have plenty of camera in the parking lot, hallways, and you must press a button on a camera at the doors and state your name and reason for visiting before you're let in. We also have a retired policeman.
Students aren't permitted to wear tank tops, V-Neck shirts, shorts that are above the knee, "yoga" pants or pajama pants. The tank tops are understandable, and the pajama pants rule is alright because I don't even know anyone who would wear pajama pants to school; however, the shorts and yoga pants rules are very disliked school-wide. Other than that, we don't have much of a bullying problem, and the bullying that does take place is swiftly resolved.
Some of them are newer teachers. They like to be there and help kids. But sometimes they don't know what they are doing
The food are healthy, but sometimes it looks nastily
