Channel Islands High School Reviews

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.

As a Latina I would usually feel left out, but once I entered Channel Islands High School everything changed, it's a very diverse school. Not only did I feel at home, but the people are amazing, you are able to walk around and make friends with almost anyone, the teachers are genuinely caring, and it is super easy to get help on almost everything. My favorite thing about this school is it's spirit, it has such an uplifting spirit. The rallies and school dances are the best!
This school is big on spirit and activities. Spirit weeks and rallies were always a big deal, and rallies would showcase the award-winning performers we have! The teachers were great and related to the students well. The only improvement I could suggest would be to make more of an effort to feed the students, because a lot of people don't qualify for the free-reduced lunch program, but cannot afford to pay for the food every day.
