I love this school. The building is very nice and just had a lot of upgrading. The teachers and administration are kind and want their students to succeed. The athletics and academics are very successful for being such a small town and school. The only thing I would like to see change is the rules. The school board has held on to some outdated rules that need to be changed, and the administrations and teachers sometimes feel strangling to the students while enforcing the outrageous rules. No facial hair, no leggings, and strict lunch rules are a couple of examples. Rules are not always bad though, still a great school!

I love Cheney High! The few things I would change would be the dress code and the no facial hair rule. Also, I would like to see more phones instead of them being prohibited. They are now apart of our life we can not just get rid of them.
This school has many amazing teachers who are interested in your future. The counselor is willing to help you with anything you need. She helps you find colleges and ways you can pay if you have financial troubles. The Principle and Vice Principle are very interested in the student culture and try to stay on top of everything. The teachers are great if you need someone to talk to. They offer nice extracurricular activities like Forensics, Debate, Battle of the Books and others if you are not into sports. This is a good school to go to. All you usually have to worry about is other students sometimes.
