CHS has a lot of great opportunities for dull-credit classes so you knock out some college credits in high school. There are a lot of vocational class options that allow you to see if the career you’re looking to go into is really for you before you have to pay for it in college. They have co-op classes where you get to work for half of the school day. This allows kids to make some money while still attending school. And most importantly, the culture at Collinsville High School is among the best. The students, staff, faculty, coaches, and community are all so supportive of each other and the Kahok way. CHS is a very safe, culture filled school that will truly prepare students for whatever their future holds!

I like Collinsville High school for many reasons, but the main reason is the people. The teachers, the coaches, the custodians, the office staff, and the students make this place special. We don't have the best school facilities or the best lives, but we are grateful for what we have and make the best out of it. Without the people at the school, its just a building. If its a teacher helping me , or if its just another student helping me study on a test to help me be successful. I like CHS because we are all in this together because we want everybody to be successful and thats just our culture. We support each other because we want everybody to have a chance at being someone because it would be great for the community. It would be great for the community because we want more people to understand that being a Kahok is special and your kids should want to be one because of how successful the past students have become. That is why I bleed and purple and white. Go Kahoks!
CHS is a good high school to go to, with a wide variety of clubs, after-school activities, athletics, and more! It's not perfect, though. The janitors aren't exactly the nicest people, so have fun with them after school. The bathrooms aren't terrible, but not very good. To put it simply for describing athletics, even the jocks are nerds. Those are the only major complaints. Teachers really do care about their students. Especially if you have a personal problem. They won't take bs, though. Some of the teachers aren't the best at teaching, so watch out for them. Students have a tendency to complain and are a little cocky at times. Overall, good academics. There's a good variety of mindsets and races. We have two officers who take keeping the school safety very seriously. We even have a P3 program, too. I'd personally recommend it.
