Corvallis highschool is chocked full of great teachers, amazing staff and unique opportunities. I came into highschool after being homeschooled for the entirety of my life, though it was a huge adjustment CHS took me under it's wing and gave me a place to grow up. I will always love the spirit and culture in Corvallis High School and will leave with great skills and experiences. Go Sparts!

It does not matter where you are from or what you believe in; everyone is welcome at Corvallis High School. CHS is a perfectly sized school. I see and recognize nearly every face on campus. Yet each day, I still manage to see a new student or two. Often times I have the privilege to talk to foreign-exchange students. I love the diversity at this school. It is such an awesome experience to speak with people of so many backgrounds. There is a healthy sum of classes to choose from as you make your schedule. A plethora of clubs and school activities insures that no student at CHS is left out. However, CHS food could use some improvement. Vegetarian and Vegan options are offered, but in my opinion most of the food available is sub-par. With its open community and great staff, CHS is the school to go to!
This school has had a very friendly atmosphere throughout my high school experience. I like the fact that everyone in the senior class helps out one another and the people are very open. The building is well kept, the sports teams are excellent, and there is a wide variety of electives to choose from. I would like to see some changes in the school activities though. We have monthly assemblies that are mandatory but they might as well be telecom announcements. I would like to see a school festival, or something of that nature, that involves all the students in a fun activity.
