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 The school board has held on to some outdated rules that need to be changed, and the administrations and teachers sometimes feel strangling to the students while enforcing the outrageous rules.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!

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.
Cheney High School does a great job preparing students for college. As a recent alum and current college student I can honestly say that my transition from high school to college was very smooth, and I felt that I was better prepared for my college classes than most of my classmates. All of the facilities are very nice; Cheney recently passed a bond to renovate the school as well as the athletic facilities. The community and parent support is great. The people that live in Cheney really care about the students; there is rarely an event - sporting or fine arts - that does not have good attendance. The one negative that I have about Cheney High School is the school lunch. I packed my lunch every day. The time allotted for lunch wasn't very long either; it was about 25 minutes, so I think they could lengthen that. Overall, my experience at Cheney High School was a very good one.
