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.

I love my school. The Charlottesville community embraces diversity and as such as young group of people, it's amazing to see my peers extend their hands to how the value of our differences. CHS students especially organize various events to ensure that all other students are equal in more ways than one. SCA meetings are open to all and officials make it easy to contact them to voice an opinion. Faculty let their contact information be know to the school and answer every email within a day or two. Our school has grown closer and closer each year. Students have the opportunities to learn about people from all over and what makes their unique but connected
C'ville schools are very poorly rated on other sites because it has a huge amount of diversity. The city has only one school system so has very high achievers with excellent home environments (C'ville is filled with professors, doctors, researchers etc) but it includes people from all stripes. They have done an amazing job of making the most of that diversity and my daughter has thrived there. By far the best school opportunities in the area are found inside the city in my opinion.
