This is a really amazing school for education. I can promise that all the staff cares about your education. I once had a teacher that stayed after for me just so I can understand the concepts of marketing. Really dedicated teachers and staffs as well so if you would like teachers like these, come over to CHECHS! Also, work is very heavy and very difficult there, but your teachers understand and will help you with anything they can.

Clear Horizons Early College High School is definitely a great atmosphere for students who obtain perseverance, determination, and dedication. The small campus allows students to know and interact with all the students from every grade level and teachers. Because it is an Early College High School, there are high standards with a heavy workload. However, there are more than enough resources such as teachers, professors, and the student success center to help the students get the help they need. What is great about Clear Horizons is the amount of help they receive when applying to colleges and universities. Teachers put in their own time out of school to help students apply for scholarships, and they are also saving a lot of tuition money by attending this school and receiving their associate's degree while in high school. I definitely recommend this school to any student who has the determination and is willing to put in the work.
CHECHS is a dual-credit high school that enables high school students to obtain their associate's degree alongside their high school degree. Academically, the high school provides the most challenging versions of typical high schools with teachers who are always available to help. The teachers may be the best part of the school. Since each class is so small, each student gets to create a personal relationship with each teacher.. Teachers care about students learning comprehension, mental health, home life, and any problem we bring to them. The school does offer several clubs, and it is very easy to create clubs. The school has large clubs, such as student council and Business Professionals of America. Being so small the school has its own personality and culture. Being a college campus, there are many resources like the library and student success center. The school was intended for diverse racial and financial backgrounds, so there is a lot of diversity here.
