The teachers at Cheltenham Highschool are phenomenal! They truly value and appreciate each and one of their students. They really prepare you for college and they want to see you succeed. Unfortunately, what I do not like about Cheltenham Highschool is the lack of security and safety.

Cheltenham High School is a very well rounded school regarding academics, extracurricular activities and involvement into the community. The school has a very good academic system where teachers are really involved in the improvement of students education while also encouraging students to take on many AP courses and extracurricular activities after school. Sports and clubs play a large role in a students life at Cheltenham High School. Most students partake in either a sport, after school club, or both! Both sports and clubs help aid students improve in their hobbies or allow students a time to connect with other students through activities.
Cheltenham High School isn't a bad school. Don't let the news fool you. Most of the teachers at Cheltenham are great. Freshman year, all of my core teachers were excellent. Cheltenham has a great selection of courses, and so many extra curriculars. It's very easy to become involved in different aspects of school! The music program at Cheltenham is amazing. Although I only do orchestra and choir, both teachers (Ms.Hutton and Mr.Hoy), are very friendly and care immensely about their jobs. School also has an amazing theater and performing arts program. Our sports don't always win, but our spirit always does! We have a great robotics program - Cheltenham caters to everyone! And if you want to do something that we don't have, you are given the resources to start it yourself! Students at Cheltenham are also politically active and care about the things going on in our community and the world. The downfall of Cheltenham is the administration. They are frustrating to deal with.
