Cherokee High School Reviews
Cherokee High School has many flaws, it is over crowded, there isn’t enough stupid parking, or enough class rooms. The school building is very old. However, I’ve gotten an education with this school and I am thankful for that. Cherokee has some amazing teachers and several truly caring administrators. The counseling department could use more organization. As well as, all counselors should be informed on things like dull enrollment, apex, and everything in between. Overall, Cherokee could have be a lot worse, but the teachers there truly make the experience so much better.
Cherokee High School is a great, well-rounded school with a very welcoming atmosphere. Being here feels like being a part of the tight-knit community and the tradition that never seems to stop living. Academics here are great and many times, the courses do seem to get challenging, but once you get into the rhythm, everything works out fine. Sports are great and are the main focus of the school and I do feel that there should be an increasing focus on academics. There are award ceremonies that reward students for their hard work, but it seems like hardworking students do not get recognized as much as they should. All in all, great school with very few things to improve on!
Cherokee High School is an extremely diverse and cultural inclusive school. However, the school has serious flaws in security and hygiene. Classrooms are closed on a daily basis due to insect infestations. School safety is also an issue. The layout of the school is very open, with no locked doors. As of today, there is only one school resource officer at the school. There is poor training given to students to assist them in the event of an emergency. Overall, the school is to some extent unsanitary and hazardous, but it makes up for it with its cultural diversity.
