Custer High School Reviews
I graduated from Custer High School. My experience was great the teachers are willing to work with students on a one on one bases. The teachers also do not make you feel dumb or stupid if you need help. My science teacher was one of the best teachers I had not only was he a science teacher but he was a coach as well. I learned a lot from the man. Homecoming week in Custer was interesting as well. This is the time for the students, faculty, and parents to get involved. The joy that comes out of it lasts a life time. Custer is a great place to get a amazing education is a small community. Everyone is willing to help as long as the student takes the time and put the effort in.
Custer high school is not so bad, and with a bunch of new staff, it's just getting better. Although there is no soccer team, the cross country team is the best in the state. The classes are not too hard, but if you do need help, every teacher is ready and willing. With relatively small class sizes, it is easy to get one on one help. The school also offers after school activities like movie nights and parties after athletic events. These are all possible thanks to their awesome student council. Custer high school is a great place to feel like part of the community.
I like the friendliness of most of the staff at CHS, I mostly connected with the school counselor and my FCCLA advisor my senior year because of personal issues that were going on and I was able to communicate with both to solve certain issues. I also fell in love with the pottery course that is given at CHS. I never thought of myself as a potter and then I found one of my hidden talents.
