My experience at Chattahoochee High School has been a great one! I transferred to Chattahoochee High School from Seaholm High School in Birmingham, Michigan at the start of my Junior year in high school. I started my study of architecture, and I completed my study of Mandarin Chinese at Seaholm. So, I was very apprehensive about moving to a new state and a new school, but my Mom had a better job opportunity in Georgia. Chattahoochee welcomed me as a new student, making the transition much easier. I have been able to continue my study of architecture and take an acoustic guitar class. I have made some great friends. The staff and teachers are awesome! My architecture teacher, Mr. Mervich has helped me to significantly improve my architecture skills. I would recommend Chattahoochee to any student who wants to be in a friendly, diverse environment with excellent academic and artistic opportunities.

Truly a great learning environment and full of great opportunities, if you take them! Many feel that this school does not set them up for success but I thoroughly oppose that. They have fantastic and well-trained faculty and extremely kind staff here. I have found many friends in some of the teachers here. Their arts program is expanding and their sports teams are undefeated!
Chattahoochee High school offers many different opportunities for all types of students. They have many different clubs that range from gaming, sports, arts, engineering and many more. They also offer a lot of college and real world credits/ experiences. They have an internship program where they help students gain internships in their respective fields. They also offer many different advanced placement classes as well as dual enrollment to gain college credit. Aside from the academics the culture of the school is very safe and inviting. The student population is very diverse and because of that they are very inviting to people of all different types of cultures.
