Cornwall High school has been a great experience for me. There have been great teachers and role models over the years, and I’ve enjoyed my time here. Although, this is an awesome school it is sometimes hard to fit in here if you’re not the majority, which is caucasian. I think we need to have more clubs and days where we can celebrate our heritage and not feel like an outcast for not being like everybody else.

CCHS strives to equally meet the areas of academics, athletics, and art. There are many AP and honors classes offered with a variety of electives and options. There are some great teachers but most of them are average. Our athletics department is very strong and probably what stands out most about the school. Recently our football team won the state championship. While there is less focus on art the department has vastly improved over the past few years. There is a variety of interesting clubs to join as well.
Cornwall Central High School is an amazing institution run by an exceptional staff. It is clear that all of the teachers and administrators truly want all of the students to succeed as best they can. That being said, there are also a number of clear issues. First the selection of classes is too small. There are a number of AP classes (computer science, Spanish, calculus BC, etc.) that I feel should be offered so that students have more opportunities to get credit while also learning with an instructor. There is also a clear bias with funding that needs to be addressed. My junior year a physics teacher had to teach using a projector that looked like it was from the 80s, but the football team with 40 kids on it gets 2 new sets of uniforms a year. Overall it's a good school, but it could be a lot better.
