I was having a hard time in school before I came to Cheney High, now I am getting back on track to graduat rather than droping out like I was planning to.
Here at CHS I found reasons to come to school everyday and my grades have hugely improved, Im talking all F's to A's and B's. Teachers and administration are overall freindly and careing. There are maney options when it comes to activities and clubs. The sports at CHS have a lot of school sperit. There is plenty of diversity too, for example: exchange students are a normal thing to see and it is nice to get to know kids like us from all over the world.

I went to and graduated from Cheney High School back in 2007, and since I went there not a lot has changed (with the exception of expanded classroom space via temporary structures in the parking lot). It was a good school. I liked my teachers, and it had a great fitness program. One of the biggest advantages to going to Cheney High School, is that it's in close proximity to Eastern Washington University. Several programs exist between the two schools, that allow high school students to begin their college education early.
It's a great school to go to! All the teacher are very nice and help you out with what you need. There's study hall after school, we have one of the best football, cross country, baseball, basketball, and track and feild teams!
