Channel Islands High School Reviews

Overall, I've had great experiences at my school. The teachers I've met truly cared for their students and wanted them to succeed. I knew a couple of teachers that I can confide in for personal problems and they have made me feel like I had someone to lean on. I think the community at my school is very united, and once I was comfortable I knew that the people that surrounded me were people I thoroughly enjoyed.

However, I think the biggest flaw of my school is that we were severely underfunded compared to the other schools in our district. For example, I play girl's tennis. I couldn't even have home games at my own school because the tennis courts were cracked and unsafe. This is the same for the track/field kids and swimmers. Some of our buildings needed contraptions to keep it supported. Most of our classrooms did not have AC. Our whole campus paled in comparison to some of the newer schools in the district. We didn't have as many AP/elective classes that would greatly benefit us.

In my previous year as a freshman at CIHS, I never felt so energetically or academically moved. CI holds numerous and sucessful upperclassmen who I know have now gone to various, high accredited universities. I was absolutely inspired to strive for my academic and personal best. Though CI may not have the best campus, we have the best students! However, some of my downs with it would just be the very few teachers who are widely known to the students to not have adaquately taught their students effectively, thus resulting in a lack of learning. Other than that, I love CI, and there are some amazing teachers.
Channel Islands High school has helped many students achieve their academic success. They try their best to make sure all students attend a school after high school and if they see people being inconsistent with school they provide Saturday school to make up tardies or absences. Although the school lunch isn't as great, they make us get fruit to have protein in our body and that is something that helps us be healthy. This school has shown us Community, Integrity, Honor, and Social Responsibility. The teachers help us and have their doors open if we need any assistance. Channel Islands has many clubs that can help us develop knowledge of college and helps us with scholarships or any other questions we have about college. Overall, these past 3 years at high school have been a great experience because this high school helps many students like me understand the real meaning of going to school.
