Cape Elizabeth High School Reviews
The school cares more about their image than about their students. Academics worked well for some, and they were given plenty of attention, but those who fell behind were ignored. Female students at the school feel unsafe, and sexual assailants are protected. The climate is very competitive and not supportive at all. The school has absolutely no diversity. If you are planning to move here for the schools, PLEASE DON'T! You can find and amazing education elsewhere.
My three children have received a very good education at Cape Elizabeth High School. Its strengths are many. At the top of the list is its beautiful location on the coast of Maine. As far as the school, the administration is absolutely top-notch -- truly child centered and strives to do what's best for the students. In particular, the principal and vice-principal are wonderful. The majority of teachers are very strong (Social Studies and English are particularly good), though there are a few who should have left a long time ago. There is a wide-variety of extra curricular activities, though the town is very sports focused. The student population lacks diversity so students miss out on the opportunity of learning from people from different backgrounds.
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!
