Cookeville High School is a great place to be for teens that have talents. The sports teams are amazing and the fine arts are full of talented people! I am in the marching band, and there are at least 6 or 7 soon to be perfessional students. This school is where i've met some of the most important and special people in my life! The teachers care about students and form healthy relationships with them, and the staff always strive to make it a safer place to be. I'm definately going to miss it here when I graduate!

I loved that Cookeville High School, while very big, also feels so much like a community! All of the teachers I had deeply and genuinely cared for their students. There were also many opportunities that the school put on for everyone to participate in and as many clubs as you can think of!
CHS is a school where students can learn and grow in a safe and loving environment. CHS offers a wide range if clubs,sports, and activities to keep students proactive and involved!
