Some teachers really care about you but the school itself is not tolerant of the gay community. They refuse us our rights to clubs now, and they discriminate upon our attributes. The school is unfair and picks favorites. It could be better, their food is decent. The activities I enjoy are band and color guard but that along with the arts department is very underfunded. The only thing that ever receives funding is football and baseball and a basketball

In my experience the school was amazing. If you ever needed help or had any questions the teacher's was there to help you. Everybody was so friendly. If there was any information that I needed the staff made sure I had it. The food the cooks served was healthy, so I never had to worry about it. Most of the clubs were super exciting. They always made sure you had something fun to do. Even if it was after school hours. The people at CCHS made me feel like I was at home. I would recommend anyone to attend there. Not just students, but staff too!
I like the personal relationships that you build with the students from the community but the school itself isn't very caring. Not many teachers care or have compassion for what they teach and it results in lacking test scores year after year. My graduating class' average score for a practice ACT was 17. This is three points below the national average but was celebrated among many of the faculty members. More compassion needs to be involved with the teachers.
