Cedarburg High School Reviews

The teachers really get to know the students and provide resource time to help students take advantage of 1:1 feedback and resources to ensure they have a solid grasp of the learning. Many AP classes available. Well-rounded clubs, fine arts and sports programs supported by strong booster clubs and parents. The fine arts programs and academics are highly recognized in the state of WI. A referendum passed in 2018 to further invest in the schools infrastructure and resources for students. STEM learning is strong, and technology platforms are used to study, communicate with students and parents, and for students to submit assignments throughout the school year.

We currently have two girls attending CHS, a junior and a freshman. One of the reasons we moved to Cedarburg several years ago was because of CHS' high ratings. And student standardized testing results are consistently high. So far, we really have been very impressed with the variety of classes offered, the faculty in general, the facilities and campus, and the extracurriculars. There is generally good support from the community (various booster clubs, and a good volunteer base for fundraisers and events). The student body, though not particularly diverse, is generally a good bunch of kids. I do wish the board of education had a more diverse makeup (including more women), but I guess that's what you get in a community with the demographics we have. Overall, however, we know our girls will leave CHS ready for a challenging academic life after high school.
Very supportive teachers and community as a whole. Have been in district from K-12 and loved the exceptional high school. Teachers are hard working, strive to see students do their best, and encourage students to become leaders amongst their peers. Very safe school as well with recent renovations geared towards safety as well. New multi-million dollar referendum will only keep CHS on top of all other schools. Overall a very supportive and safe environment that challenges students in the best ways.
