My high school experience was pretty great! At Cornwall high school the teachers are very helpful and very personable. I'm currently a senior and have been enrolled in three college level courses which were all very challenging but with the help of my teachers and the NHS tutoring center i excelled in them! The environment is what you make it, some people have so many friends and have the time of their life in Cornwall but others struggle. In my opinion the students at Cornwall are very nice and include you in a lot of things you just have to reach out and talk to them. There are so many clubs at Cornwall and sports are a huge thing. The football team won the state championship two years in a row and everyone was super supportive of them... the town even held a parade for the team. High school is what you make it and at Cornwall the school is small, but big enough to find your place to fit in.
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 was really excited to come to Cornwall High School. I love how the students are very school spirited and are willing to help each other in any case. What I was really surprised by was how accessible and supportive the staff were in helping me with my studies in school and my plans after graduation. I would say this school is very supportive of its sports teams and encourages its students to represent the school. It also puts some emphasis on music and the arts, as there are a plethora of electives you can take to complement your high school experience. Outside of the school day, students are usually practicing for or competing in sports competitions or engaging in the many clubs that the school offers, including new mental wellness groups. I believe the food served here is pretty good in variety and taste, although some think it could be better. I have had an amazing time at this school and hope to keep in touch with the friends I have made along the way.
