Because Central Aroostook High School is small in size, not many clubs are offered and extracurriculars are offered. However, those that are tend to be well-kept and participated in. Cuts in funding make it hard for certain clubs to run, but usually the community is pretty supportive and the administration puts academic clubs above others. Enjoyable and popular clubs include Youth in Government, Future Farmers of America, and National Honor Society. These clubs take enjoyable trips that open up great incentive to join. Students who join are usually committed because they are somehow rewarded or genuinely enjoy the activity.
The teaching staff at Central Aroostook High School varies greatly in age, teaching style, and personality. While many teachers are good at what they do, there are a handful of teachers who go beyond what is asked of them. For a great example, a particular English teacher sets aside a few minutes each Monday to discuss current events. Not only does this give the students a chance to cure the Monday blues, but the small time slot keeps students educated on the world around them and allows them a time to voice their opinions. With that, all teachers designate at least a few days a week to work with students outside of class. The teaching staff never likes to see a student fail and will always put their best foot forth to ensure it does not happen. All of the teachers at CAHS are friendly and enjoy casual conversation with the students. While some teachers are older and enjoy a more traditional lecture-style class, younger teachers usually incorporate more hands-on activity into their lessons. Although the teachers are currently struggling with the grading system due to new Maine laws on standard-based learning, the situation at hand is not the fault of the teachers. They truly do their best to work both with the law and the interest of their students. Teachers at CAHS come from several different backgrounds. While they are all intelligent in their field of study, many teachers are also well educated on further topics and share interests with students. That, however, may be thanks to the small, close-knit community. Overall, for what they are given, CAHS teaching staff deserves a pat on the back.
