Childress High School is a great school with an excellent staff of teachers and admin. There's something about a small-town school and the community behind each student in everything they do. No matter what you do you'll have a community of teachers and faculty rooting for you to succeed. The only flaws are things such as the cafeteria. Overall, the well being of students always comes first and it makes me proud to be part of such an amazing school district.

I liked the community involvement, all of the family's of the students always helped when asked. It's a small town high school, so you know what to expect, only, CHS had more than that, it gave me a sense of community when I attended. The teachers, the principle, all of the staff were nice and friendly, and were more like friends and family than employees of the school. My 4 years spent there will be the most memorable of my life, all of the ball games, the friends I made and the things I have accomplished. I'll always tell myself I should have enjoyed it while I could.
I love Childress High School home of the fighting Bobcats! Childress High School came from nothing to something due to showing the community its hard work ethic. I would like to see vending machines in the hallways of Childress High School.
