My experience at Cullman High School was overall a very good experience. I moved from a small private school, and adapted to Cullman super quick. I got a very good education, and feel well prepared for college and the future. I made many friends that will last a lifetime. Homecoming is my favorite thing about CHS. We do it like no other school. I would not want to be a part any other school. I would change the school lunches, of course, but I always bring my lunch. If they had Chickfila, I would be eating lunch there everyday. I also would change some of the rules. This year, they implemented a new cell phone policy, which I am not a fan of. Other than my typical teenage complaints, Cullman High School is my ideal place to get the best education!

Cullman High School is a wonder place for learning. I have furthered my knowledge with our academic programs. There are a lot of opportunities for student learning for everyone. This school helps student to prepare for college and many other life skills outside of high school. My experiences here at this school have been truly great. I enjoy the our school's staff and administration because the opt to understand and acknowledge any student's needs and will provide us with any necessary resources. I am proud to say that I will be a soon to be graduate of Cullman High School because this is a school that is so honored, well-maintained, and continuously trying to
better themselves for the benefit of every child here.
My experience at Cullman was great. I’m currently a junior and I enjoy my school and all of our activites. I would only change a few minor things about my school and those things are dress code, the math department, and the food choices. Our dress code is very strict and almost sexist. The math department has some good teachers but others lack multiple methods in teaching kids. Finally, the food isn’t all that great but you can bring a lunch. Overall, the experience at Cullman is great and the atmosphere is awesome!
