Cedar Hill High School Reviews
There is a lot of diversity and school spirit here! The school really supports joining organizations and being college ready. However, better communication to students about deadlines and events should be made. In this school, there are a few teachers that don’t seem to like their job or do their job right, but the majority does their job well and lightens the environment with their care for their students.
Throughout my 3 years as a student of Cedar Hill HS, I have had a pretty basic high school experience. There aren't any major issues with the school, but there also ins't anything that makes the school stand out. The biggest issue with the school is occasional fight, but those only happen every so often. The school does have a really good AP program in which students are given the utmost support and even monetary incentives. Those students that do the most are greatly appreciated among administration and teachers. There is a great Fine Arts department with their being several choirs, a band, orchestra,dance team, and a multitude of art courses. The sports teams are usually very successful in their districts. The school isn't the most diverse as a majority of students are African American and other ethnicities make up much smaller fractions.
Personally, I often feel crowded in the halls and classrooms. Some classes are not at an adequate level of rigor in my opinion. However, most of my classes are challenging, which I really like. I would like to see a bigger focus on academics as opposed to athletics. I do feel like that is slowly changing, but as a high-ranking student, I do feel undermined and overshadowed by the athletics program. Organizations like HOSA (Future Health Professionals), which I am apart of, are very underappreciated compared to the football team.
