I like Charleston High School because the district was so small. Smaller classroom allowed everyone to get fully engaged in what was being taught.
If I could change anything about Charleston High, I’ll change the faculty members. Most of the teachers didn’t care if you learned anything or not. They focused mainly on punishing students than helping them succeed.

I've had a positive experience as a student at Charleston High School. Every challenge that came my way I was able to conquer. Many of the teachers are a valuable asset to the school and will make themselves available to help you in any way they can. Then there are others that should reevaluate their desire to be an educator. Charleston High School have begun to allow students to take College courses through Coahoma Community College that's a plus cause there are some really smart students at the school and needs to be academically challenged in order to not lose interest in their education. Things that they could improve on includes better line of communication between parents, teachers and administrators. Many of the teachers I've had, over the course of my 4 years, have helped to shaped me into the young man that I am growing into being.
I would like for the school to be rebuilt. Also they need more resources for the children.
It was a good school until they started changing administration and also they need to implement more clubs and a techology center. But overall it is an okay school.
