Cheney School District Reviews

The academics at this school are very reliable. There was never a point during high school that I felt as if I was being left behind in regards to education or access to technology. This school is smaller than other schools because of the location, so for a traditional student, this would be a great place to start and continue education all the way until completion of high school. One key area of this school that sets it apart from others at the high school level is the access to technology-oriented classes such as web design, photoshop, MOS Certification and workplace skill classes. Personally while here I recieved a total of 13 tech related college credits next to a full panel of Microsoft Office certifications.

The Cheney School District is a very close community. I have had a very good experience by being able to participate in many clubs and after school activities. The teachers and other administrators do everything in their abilities to provide the students with everything they need in order for them to succeed. I am a running start student, so Cheney High School provides students with the opportunity to get a head start on college.
I have been in this school district my whole life. The community is small and intimate which is nice. I would like to see girls sports recognized more because boys sports is very obviously put on a higher pedestal and favored over girls. Academically it is overall average and most of the teachers are great.
