There are many positives about CSHS including the courses that are offered. They have a wide variety of AP courses, dual enrollment options, and other college readiness options such as the early middle college program where your associates degree is paid for! On the other hand, one thing I would change, is the class size. Many classes are too large for ideal learning conditions. I was never in a class that was less than 25 students and for many it was hard to deeply understand the material. Overall, the staff and administrators care for their students and their futures. They try really hard to prepare them for college or the workforce.

Cedar Springs High School is where I graduated from and I loved the environment. The teachers were always willing to help no matter the situation and the all were the type of people who strive to see their students succeed. Some teachers would help prepare their students for the college environment, while other made sure that students weren't falling behind in the fast paced environment. Additionally, there was such a wide variety of classes. Many students, including myself, had the opportunity to take dual enrollment classes to earn college credit, or we could take advanced placement courses where we could end up testing out of college classes. These were super important to myself and others who looked to go into college with some credit already under their belt. Overall, I think the school had a very welcoming environment through the faculty, my fellow students were the only ones who made high school a little tough on my end.
Cedar Springs High School has been a very nice school to attend and I have had a very positive experience so far. The teachers at this school are very caring and want the best for their students; they also are talented in their fields and are great educators. At Cedar Springs High School there are plenty of opportunities to succeed whether that be in one of their many AP courses offered or an extracurricular activity or club ran at the school. The atmosphere is also very nice at this high school because everyone tries to be as friendly as they can. Cedar Springs is a smaller town but the school is a perfect size between a large city and an itty bitty town. As the incoming classes are growing in size, the district may want to consider expanding the building or growing the campus to account for that. I have enjoyed my time at CSHS.
