The academics are top class with an IB (International Baccalaureatte) program that is acclaimed all over the world. There is great staff and teachers that will guide you through exactly what you need. Many IB graduates go to prestigious schools. This year there were graduates for Boston University, Duke University, Johns Hopkins University and also Emory University. In terms of culture, there is great pep rallies and school spirit that you can thrive in. Unlike other schools, if you are new in this school, there are many students that will immediately be attached to you and be friends with you throughout the school year. There are many ethnically diverse students from Latin Americans, Asians, African Americans, White, and foreign transfer students from Europe, Asia, and Latin America. The school is very safe with good routine drills every once in a while and very successful and active sports teams especially in swimming, soccer, and basketball.

Overall, Cape Coral High School is an amazing school that has something for everything. For achieving students, the International Baccalaureate program is offered, as well as a variety of Advanced Placement and Honors courses. The JROTC program is also widely recognized for students interested in military and leadership services. There are also many career orientated electives that prepare students for college, such as game design and hospitality. One downside to the school is that it's architecture is a bit strange; in many cases, the walls are not made of concrete between classrooms, so it is very common to hear other classes in session. To make up for this downside, however, the teachers are excellent and engaging, and are very likely to acquire the attention of students in class. The staff is very friendly and understanding, and always make sure the school is running smoothly. Overall, I would definitely recommend attending Cape Coral High School.
Cape Coral High School is an alright school if you leave out all the teachers who should have been fired a long time ago and the poor attitudes from most students. Although, CCHS does have programs and club which help students like me to prepare for college for example the International Baccalaureate program. It is selective and hard to go through but it really helps students prepare for college. This school isn't all that special, its just an average high school with no stand out qualities other than the IB program
