My experience at Cherokee High school has been nothing but sensational. The atmosphere is very great here, and learning is so fun. The administrators are very kind and they care about us students. From four years experience, this high school is all around great due to the many clubs, sports, and friendly faces!

Cherokee High School helped me learn the basics of being a adult. At first I was scared but then I started talking to other classmates. When I was able to talk I felt confident, as a result I was able to give presentations and more. The teachers were always helpful, from school work to personal problems. My counselor encouraged me to break out of my shell and explore the endless possibilities around me. Cherokee High School is very clean, they also make sure everyone has breakfast either by the Breakfast Cart or in the lunch room., which is life-changing for some students. I love Cherokee High School and everything they stand for!
As a senior I feel there is more emphasis on the major sport programs than there is on education. The disrespect given to teaches by some of the "star" football players is awful, yet they continue to play with no repercussions. I do not feel prepared for college. Many classes I had to take have nothing to do with what I want to accomplish in life I was put in them because they needed numbers in those classes. As far as clubs there are a wide variety of organizations that you can be a part of.
