This school has the potential to be great. They have great facilities, and amazing links to the Early College High School program. I was really discouraged by the teachers at this school. There are a small handful who are delightful and really seem to care, but the majority are pretty apathetic. The teachers at CHS like to pick one or two students to be their poster child for the schools success, and put all their focus on them, and leave the other kids behind in the dust. for most of the kids in this town, CHS is the only thing they have. IT could be their ticket to bigger and better places, but its not. In my years there I have witnessed significant bullying, even towards mentally handicapped students. I have seen verbal bullying occur both from students and educators. The school is very cliquy, and many teachers and high up faculty members have obvious favorites. The best thing about this school is the art class. The art teacher at CHS is the best thing about the school.

The administration was my aspect of attending CHS. Mr. Yancey is fair and treats everyone with respect. Whenever I had an issue, I would take it to him because I knew it would be resolved effectively.
The school itself has it's ups and downs. You have certain teachers that are very good and then some who you will hate. A lot of teachers have favorites, which drove me crazy.
