Coal Ridge High School Reviews

The advanced academic classes are difficult but provide a good pay off. However, the salary in Western Colorado for teachers is too low and the cost of living is too high for teachers and coaches to stay long. Most have to take second jobs and rarely last longer than two years. This past year, I had three different teachers in my physics class, which made it hard to learn the subject, considering each teacher taught the same unit for their first month. The athletic programs aren't great. There are a few good teams, like boys basketball, track, and cheerleading, but my football team is pretty bad. I was a cheerleader, however, and know how the team and coach operate. The atmosphere is drama filled, when I was on the team, we were publicly humiliated in front of other students, and the coach hosts practices on Sundays, which is against CHSAA rule. My book club is the best, though and the parents in the PTA and Booster Club are very helpful.

The small town atmosphere is great, after previously being bullied and failing 2 classes at my previous school, here I have a current 4.0 GPA and i havent even witnessed any bulling, it is truly a great school with great classmates and great teachers.
Coal Ridge High School is where I made many of the friends I have today. The faculty always has the student's best interest at heart, and they work with you weekly to ensure you're prepared for whatever you may be interested in after you graduate. I played soccer, track, and basketball in high school, and they were all tons of fun. They are at the top of their league in each of those sports, and have amazing coaches across the boards.
