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!

My experience at this high school is something I wouldn’t trade for any other. This school shapes their students into successful men and women who aspire to be more than ordinary young adults. The sports were amazing! The academics were amazing! My best friends came from this high school and I’ve never met nicer peers. CHS upholds their students so the students can uphold the high school. I favorite part of the school was that I could do what I found interest in and there were others who joined and we made a bond and new experiences that let us grow as individuals. One thing I’d like to see in the future is more leniency on the kids! A lot of the rules in the high are really strict for a student to feel like they have their own space. Each year I hear of a new rule that restricts spaces and privileges they deserve as high school students. CHS I believe will still carry out a number spot in the county. It’s truly a blessing to have come out of this school.
The only adjective I can use to describe cookeville high school is colorful. There hasn’t been one year that has left me bored. The teachers at cookeville high school are all different breeds. I’ve had teachers that are amazing and others that care but don’t put in much effort. Throughout my high school experience, I’ve learned to take care of myself and push to be the best version of me that I could possibly be. The high school has motivated me in more ways than one to reach the goals I have set for my further. Overall, it’s been a pretty stressful yet interesting experience.
