Teachers are driven by politics. School used to be a great place for Durham and Middlefield kids but it’s gone so downhill. I transferred out of here for my JR and SR year and have no regrets. You can’t succeed here unless you suck up to the teachers and be their puppets. Teachers made me feel awful here and I never really wanted to work hard for any of them. I had a math teacher my sophomore year who allowed kids to treat me poorly in class and allowed jokes to be made about my personal life. The school has a few great teachers that I loved and had some amazing guidance but for the most part I struggled here academically and emotionally. This school has gone so downhill, and a lot of kids I know are transferring out and I don’t blame them. The middle school down the street isn’t any better. The school is creating and graduating kids that are unprepared for reality. I benefitted very much by leaving coginchaug and I encourage others to do the same.

There was great classes offered to every student and lots of good opportunities for each student. The Core Ethical Values displayed in every classroom, Respect, Responsibility, Courage, Honesty, and Kindness, are the core rules of the district and help students on the right track to their futures.
I have had a very good experience with CRHS. Through our well-taught core classes and wide variety of electives in science, social studies, athletics, math, fine arts, culinary arts, and more I feel that I have gained valuable knowledge that will truly benefit me in my future at college and beyond.
