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.
My experiences at Cheltenham were good. I was invloved in thie track and field program for 3 years, then stopped. I have been involved in black student programs, committees, and honors societies for my whole high school career. Cheltenham has always been known for our school spirit, so I love our blue and gold night and the preparation for that! I also love how it helps us come closer as a school. Overall, Cheltenham is a good district and I enjoyed living and going through their schools since elementary school.
