My time at Cherokee has been nothing but spectacular! All of my teachers have shown true amounts of dedication to educate every student they come across. The variety of clubs allows a very high percentage of students to find an extracurricular activity easily. Our school is incredibly diverse, as multitudes of Hispanic, Asian, African Americans, and Caucasian students fill these halls every day. Safety is a priority for Cherokee, as the front door is locked without proper identification and we have 2 school officers inside our campus. The only issue I would have with my school is the facilities, as we have a minor problem with keeping some areas clean with rare chances of finding bugs, but still finding them from time to time. To conclude, Cherokee High School is a school I'm proud to say I've been enrolled in for 4 strong years!

This school has great resources for students! There are some really amazing teachers here. The art department is AMAZING. There are many clubs here, which is a way teachers are connecting with their students. Some of the teachers here really want to see their students succeed.
I really enjoyed attending Cherokee High School. They really care about their students! However, one thing I would like to see change is students being more accepted. That is a hard thing but maybe having more assembly’s on the way we treat others would be helpful.
