High school in Cherokee county has been great. Cherokee county offers about every AP class that exist and has great classes to prepare you for the tests. In my expereince Cherokee County has kept the schools clean and hired a great custodian staff. Cherokee county also supports their fine arts programs very much. Every school’s marching bands, bands, orchestras, theater programs, and art classes are funded greatly and are supported when they are sent off to or have their art displayed. The same goes for all the sports teams who make state, regional, and national. I have also loved the turnout of students at sports games, especially the community I have seen at football games, everywhere between the marching band and the cheerleaders doing cheers together and the football coming out to help the marching band with a car wash fundraiser.

My name is Olivia Herrera and I'm a senior at Cherokee High School in Canton, Ga. I've gone to school in Cherokee county all of my school years this far. In Elementary, we had every club or sport available and the teachers were wonderful; really cared for each student. Middle school should of been "difficult years" but I was given a strong foundation and had the support in my teachers and coaches to where I grew and I matured. I'm wrapping up my senior year at Cherokee High School and can say I will miss this experience. I'm blessed to have been a student athlete for the oldest high school in Cherokee County that still has the support of it's community, alumni and present students. I'll be furthering my education and will remain a student athlete at Oglethorpe University this fall. As I head I to this next chapter of my life, I give thanks to my family and friends who have given me the foundation and resources needed to succeed in this journey called life.
Cherokee County School district is very unique! Cherokee county school district is the only district I've ever attended school in and I wouldn't be the same without it. The community involvement, administration, and county officials are unlike any other and provide an amazing learning environment for students to thrive.
