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!
My experience at Cherokee High School was excellent. The staff as well as the students are very kind and caring. The friends I have made throughout High School will be the friends that are with me til death. The teachers and staff care about each and every individuals well-being. When ever I get sick and can not make it to school, the next day I go back the teachers are asking if I am okay and feeling better. The whole atmosphere at Cherokee High School is just wonderful. One change I would change about Cherokee High School is to have the bathrooms monitored at all times. The bathrooms are horrible. People make messes of them constantly and there are always people juuling in them. However, overall, my experience at Cherokee High School is fantastic.
