I love Cheyenne Mountain. The new school is beautiful, and the staff are very personable and want you to achieve. There are so many clubs, sports, and activities that are offered here, so you are never bored and always have something to do! The human resources and support from the counseling office, college services, and administration are invaluable and the very best quality here at Cheyenne.

CMHS is a competitive school with excellent teachers, academics, and athletics! The student body is an amazing community which incourages growth and learning together.
Overall I had a very good experience with Cheyenne Mountain High School. The building was remodeled this year, and I like it very much, except for the fact that the security guards lock the doors during lunch so you need to have a pass to go from the classroom to the restrooms and back, and if it is your lunch time you can't go in the classrooms. I understand this is for security reasons, but students always get late to class because they don't have a pass. I loved my Intro to Engineering class, because of all the projects we did and the equipment we have in our classroom. I had a good relationship with my teachers and counselor.
