I transferred to Cedar shoals high school my second semester of freshman year. At first I got off to a rough start, because the school was bigger than what I was used to, and I really didn't know many people. As the years went by I grew to love my High school. My friends that I had met, they are family. The teachers are also amazing! I had a bound with some of my teachers that I know will never be broken. Cedar shoals is a place of diversity. You're always going to fit in somewhere. We are One Cedar!

Throughout my time at Cedar Shoals, we have had quite a few principals, many of them were not so great. Our most recent principal, Mr. Maxwell, has greatly improved our school. Students actually like and respect him, especially compared to a few of our past principals. Even though we have had our problems, I wouldn't want to have gone to high school anywhere else. I have gained so many friends and relationships.
Would love to see more teachers that care and celebrate students more and push students to do more in life rather than just get thru. Would love to see more ACT/SAT readiness and college readiness! More up to date text books and learning at a 2019 rate
