Being a student at Corinth High School, CHS, I'm able to experience things that most students at other schools don't get to experience. First off, we are the only school in Mississippi that is on the Cambridge curriculum. Being on this curriculum I am able to challenge myself with classes that are two years ahead on my time. The motto for this curriculum is "college and career ready". It is a challenge but the students here can easily get through college because they have already been exposed to it. Another thing that I love about CHS is that they are greatly involved with their students. Whether it's in the classroom or extra activities the teachers and staff make it their mission to be involved with the students in my school. You will not experience here what you will see at other high schools. We are different, however, we are different in our on way.

Corinth was a decent school. There were some very good teachers and some very bad teachers. Some classes prepared me very well for college, while many just ended up being opportunities to watch movies.
At Corinth High School, we are on a Cambridge University curriculum, so the teachers have to spend more time grading than most teachers. Coming from another school, which was in the county, I realize it more than others how truly blessed Corinth students are. The teachers care about every single student here, in and out of the classroom walls. I have had better educational opportunities since moving here my Sophomore year. Last school year, as a Junior in high school, I took Human Anatomy & Physiology 1 & 2 as a dual credit course through Northeast. This school year, I am taking another dual credit course: College Algebra. I feel like I have been more prepared for college by attending Corinth School District for the past three years, as opposed to staying in a county school, where budget is cut low. When I came to Corinth, we received Apple MacBook Air laptops to complete our Cambridge coursework. Since colleges use laptops to submit work, this helps us students get an idea of how we will turn in papers in college.
