My mom went to Cheltenham High School (class of 1990). I just graduated with the class of 2017. Unfortunately the Cheltenham my mom went to isn't the same one that people see today, but Cheltenham still does all the same good things that they did back then. The real Cheltenham has great teachers and hardworking students. We have a nationally recognized student council, a national merit scholar, clubs for racial and gender equality, and award winning sports and arts programs. There are climate problems, but as a community they're being worked on.
Review Cheltenham High School
My four years at Cheltenham High School were the best . It had such a great atmosphere. The teachers and staff were very welcoming from day one and were almost always there when you need them. The security there is great, I never felt unsafe. It's a very diverse community filled with so many nice people. The only thing is that they changed administration during my junior year which I didn't think was a good move but for the most part everything worked out fine.
The Honors department is top-notch! I got to take tons of challenging AP and Honors classes. Unfortunately, CHS cares way too much about gym class.
