I have appreciated my experience at CCHS there are so many adults and students in the building that you can trust. My peers at CCHS have given me character and have accepted me for who I am. CCHS also offers many extracurricular activities like sports, clubs, and organizations to get involved with to keep you busy. I am involved in a few of the clubs and organizations which I love because they have allowed me to create new friendships with people I never would have met otherwise. CCHS has also allowed me to pursue my dream in educating and helping other people by letting me plan Respect Week at our school which was held in February. The open-mindedness of the staff and faculty allowed me to bring an idea to life, and allowed it to be student run which you don't see very often. Students can be who they want to be, and bring their ideas to life at CCHS. Dragons strive for greatness!

I love it at my high school. Our curriculum is engaging, and I love how it encourages me to test my limits. The teachers are amazingly motivating, and always inquire as to how we are feeling on any given day. They truly care about our mental health. There is an even divide between funding to sports and music, which is extremely important to me.
I love a lot of things about Cornwall High school.Since freshman year I have always felt comfortable going there every single day for school.Everyone is taught to get a long with each other and there is never bullying taking place.Additionally I enjoy the love for sports our school has.On the other hand I feel that the teachers are always there to help you and they usually form strong relationships with individuals throughout the years.You aren’t just a random number in any of your classes.Also the school cafeteria has great food even when they are trying to keep everything very healthy.
