The teachers are great! Everyone wants to see others achieve their goal. They push us very hard to do work and will be behind us every step of the way. I believe that going to a Charlottesville City School my entire life, I can say I am very satisfied with my decision to have chosen this school. It exceeded my expectations. The school district school has very friendly, helpful teachers for the most part and the academics are challenging yet encourage deep thinking. Academics are no joke but the work is manageable. The school gives you very many important resources and guides you every step along the way while still encouraging independence.

Charlottesville City Schools provides a welcoming environment with fair academics. Students feel prepared to continue on to whatever they plan following high school, and don't feel pressured that they must continue on to university. It's overall a very safe-feeling environment. Athletics are a huge deal despite very bad teams, and there's a real sense of community at the school.
Starting Charlottesville High was very overwhelming at first. After the first few years pass by, you feel like family. One very diverse family. Very proud that I went to a school that has supported many people backgrounds, religions and political views. Once something happens to one of us, it affects all of us. All the adults in this high school are very welcoming and open to everyone which is very odd is some schools. Students are very welcoming and care very much about their educations. Very proud to be a black knight.
