One of the best things about College and Career High School was definitely the teachers. Never in my life have I had such a positive, supportive, and deeply educational involvement with every single teacher I have had at this school; I even have a close and professional relationship with my principal and other staff.
Another amazing aspect to this dual credit school is the commitment and dedication to education. Every student at this school is accepted in by the staff, and the students main goal is to graduate with their associate's degree(s).
With the help of my teachers and staff at this school I was able to earn my associates degrees in: English, Communications, and Liberal Arts, as well as a certificate in General Studies with a 3.4 GPA.
I am forever grateful to this school and would recommend it to any student who is serious and dedicated to finishing school early with the knowledge that this school is one of the most academically challenging, but also the most rewarding.

CCHS is a great school for forward-thinking and dedicated students who want to focus on improving themselves academically and getting ahead for the future. The school offers a lot of freedom and, with it, a lot of responsibility. The school is diverse and inclusive. The faculty and staff at CCHS are fabulous and care not only about student outcomes, but also our wellbeing. The biggest downside is that there is a very limited amount of extracurricular activity, but this is ideal for students like me who prefer a more academically-focused setting and to participate in activities outside of school.
College & Career High School is a very good school, making the students take both high school classes and college classes at the same time. This provides them with more opportunities in the future. Due to the students being dual credit they get an early view on how college is much different than a normal high school. In College & Career High School many of the students graduate with many college degrees or certificates. College & Career is a great school, therefore no changes should be done.
