It was a very neat tidy and clean school and well prepares you for going to college! The facility is nice, the teachers are excellent and its overall was just a very nice school to be in. I really learned a lot in my four years at Cuthbertson that I definitely apply to college now. It was such a benefit and it helped me prepare and get ready for college. It is a very safe and comfortable environment to learn freely and express yourself accordingly. I would for sure recommend this school to anyone looking for a place to move and attend a new high school!

Cuthbertson Highschool is honestly a great school! The school offers many classes to help students find what there interested and what doesn’t interested to help find a career pathway for college. The classes can be challenging but they challenge students in a good way.
I would like to see an improvement in the way the money is used in the altheic department and with the band and musical. As a student, I think it’s disrespectful that some sports have the opportunity’s that other sports and the musicals department don’t. I think this needs to be improved.
If you are looking to find a school that offers an outstanding education, boatloads of extracurricular activities, dedicated staff, and a competitive environment, then look no further. Cuthbertson High School is the place for you. Being built in 2009, this new school is able to offer the latest and greatest learning tools like smart boards, language labs, and computer softwares. All students are pushed to do their best both inside and outside of the classroom. Teachers help uphold this mission by offering tutoring hours before and after school and aiding with student-led clubs, teams, and study groups. Students are also given the tools they'll need to succeed after high school with free certification opportunities in Microsoft Word and Powerpoint, Adobe softwares and even a Certified Nursing Assistant course. These are some of the amazing opportunities I was able to experience during my time at Cuthbertson High School, and I'm sure many more improvements are yet to come.
