It is my experience that only those who are good at school--that is, perform well academically--enjoy their school. Like many others, I could list countless bad experiences with teachers and students alike. There were some classmates that made my eyes roll to the back of my head and there were also some teachers that made me hate the subject they taught. However, there are the diamonds in the rough that make the grueling academic environment worth it. I am fortunate enough to find a sense of belonging among my peers and have several teachers who genuinely cared for their students. I became involved in multiple clubs around campus, which allowed me to grow as a person. Through organizations such as Future Business Leaders of America and Get Lit Poetry, I developed the confidence I have today. I want to thank those who made my high school experience worth the bland lunches and disgusting bathrooms.

CCHS is a diverse school full of opportunities. There is lots of clubs to choose from, there is sports, the award winning band, choir, and tons to choose from. Seniors are offered a series of programs that can allow them to ready themselves and pursue a career, such as law enforcement or nursing. The campus is not to big or not to small so it makes it fairly easy to walk to class and make it on time. We have great measures of safety as we have multiples security guards and a resource officer from the local police station as well. The teachers and staff are wonderful, the food is great, you really couldn't ask for a better school.
The teachers there are willing to help and the teachers that I had in my classes were kind, were knowledgeable in the subject they taught, and were quite comical. The security and office staff are helpful if a student needs anything taken care of, they are easy to reach and are there for you so never hesitate to contact anyone for assistance. If you are a male student like myself, always remember to keep your shirt tucked in too since that is their dress code policy. The security guards and any staff will report you and get you in trouble for not following the code. Electives there are fun as well.
