I have had a very memorable experience throughout Culpeper High School and I will miss it when I head off to college! I would say that the best thing about this school is the teachers. They are very invested in helping you understand class material and are very engaging with their students. Another thing that is great about this school is its communication about events that are coming up. It helps students plan ahead and get excited about activities. Culpeper High School also has a wide range of college classes that are able to be taken online or in a regular class. It gives students the right idea about college expectations pertaining to work, tests, etc. If I had to change something, I would want to increase the parent involvement. There is some, but I believe that there could definitely be more so that parents could have a greater knowledge of what is happening at their child's school. Overall, this place is full of wonderful people and I have had some great moments here!

My overall experience of Culpeper County high school was not necessarily the best. First of all the administration is lacking in knowledge and they are very disorganized. They are also extending biased when dealing with disciplinary matters. The counseling department is very disorganized and doesn’t really do anything. The teachers are great! They love to help students and are really fun to be around. I believe that the main problem with CCHS is Daniel Soderholm. His smothering and suffocating form of “leadership” offers no outside opinions to be heard.
Hi! I am a current senior at Culpeper High School and will be graduating this upcoming spring. These last few years at this school have been steady for me, and I have made many memories here. I have always been greeted by friendly staff that are willing to help me always. Along with that, the school's academics have always been hopeful on my behalf. I am also a part of the school's fine arts department, and participate in the musicals. Overall, I believe that Culpeper High School is a great place to learn, make friends, and pursue a promising education.
