Cape Elizabeth High School Reviews

Both of my parents and all of their siblings went to CEHS, and my brother, my cousins, and I followed. For my personal experience, CEHS has been a great high school experience, despite all the stereotypes about my town. It’s a gorgeous, coastal town with lots of big houses, so you’d assume that all the kids are stuck-up, rich, spoiled brats, but everyone is friendly and kind!

The Cape school system has a reputation for being full of stuck up rich kids, but, in my experience, for the most part, the students here are very friendly and kind. The staff care about student success and will go out of their way to help them succeed. While the the class work is difficult there are many resources available to help students in need.
Cape Elizabeth High School is a small and friendly school environment that has great teachers who will go out of there way to find a way to help every students personal need so they can succeed. As well as a high education standard Cape Elizabeth High School even though it is quite small is know for having excellent extra circular opportunities for students to take part in. From the amazing and competitive (that have had several state game appearances this year alone) to the highly regarded music and drama programs Cape Elizabeth is an amazing High School that provides students with everything they could want and helps them prepare for future success.
