As a graduate from the class of 2017 I am proud to say that I'm an explorer. The opportunities that the school offered me to go grow as an individual helped me strive in and outside the classroom, I became more independent, and helped me become the person I am today. Thanks to the faculty, whom were attentive to their students at all times, I was helped in anything I needed help in, either big or small. The facilities that were provided by the school helped every student feel safe at all times and if any situation arouse, that concerned students in anyway, the faculty was on it in a heartbeat. The school provided students with countless opportunites with scholarships to know information about and apply for. The amount of extracurricular activities afterschool, either being sports or other types of activities, were abundant and helped students get into the colleges of their dreams.
My son is a sophomore and he couldn't be happier. At CCHS they care for students and know each one individually. They teach their students to develop strong character and resilience, balanced moral conscience and solid values, hard work and teamwork. We could not be happier!
