Cape Coral High School has some incredible teachers, and some very very disappointing ones. The main benefit is the IB Program, which is great for college! I was happy with my time here but disappointed in many of the teachers. I did however, have some of the best teachers here and benefitted from a great education from those few teachers.

In Cape Coral High School I was enrolled in the IB Program. I understand that with this program I was somewhat isolated from the other students within my school and grade level, and that my overall experience is a deeper reflection of the IB Program than of CCHS. I’m a senior, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the past four years at CCHS. I’ve always gotten good support from my counselors and the staff, my teachers are always available to meet with me if I have an issue or concern, and I’ve made many close friends that I hope to take into college. My only concern with Cape is that there is a high level of stress and competition within IB, so if you plan on pursuing this program, be sure to research and know what you’re getting into.
My personal experience? Alright. It's an okay school, from what I've seen it doesn't instill creativity more just lots of studying. The teachers here are all really lax, they don't like grading work as much as you don't like doing it. So, don't expect 'extra credit.'

Overall, to me it's rather average. It's not really good nor bad. It's very clean and polished so it's a sanitary school but that's about it.

Keep in mind that this is coming from an IB sophomore. Maybe you'll have a better experience than mine?
