Being in district 12 your whole life you realize what a strong sense of community there is. This is a fairly small school in comparison to others so almost everyone knows everyone. It being like that makes it easier to watch out for one another. It makes you feel safer. We had absolutely amazing teachers that would do anything to make sure you are learning, understanding, and enjoying the class. Our athletics and school spirit was through the roof. Nobody missed a football game and everyone came covered in maroon and white ready to cheer. We supported one another no matter what. Cheyenne mountain high school was an amazing experience and made me feel prepared for not only college but real life.

All the teachers are amazing and really friendly and easy to talk to. They will help you with anything but you must advocate for yourself. They also have an amazing program that helps kids with learning disabilities. One of these programs is the class LEAD. LEAD stand for Learning and Educating About Disabilities. LEAD has helped me so much with communicating about my learning disabilities and to become more confident and more successful in my academics. Another thing that is great at CMHS is the art programs. They have so many art classes to choose from, and all the art teachers are very talented artists. A lot of my experiences at CMHS have been really helpful to prepare me for college. In fact when I decided to graduate a year early they supported me, and helped me in achieving my goal. Even though I have only been at Cheyenne Mountain for 2 years this school has helped me prepare for what is after high school.
Cheyenne Mountain High School is a great school with great academics and teachers who for the most part are passionate about there area of expertise. One thing I don’t care for is the negative connotation of some of the sports teams. Most of the people who make remarks about the sports teams do not even play sports themselves so, how can they say that the Football team sucks if they didn’t play for the team or at least give them the benefit of the doubt and just keep their mouth shut. I think that until you try to change something you can’t complain about it or say it sucks. This also applies to some students of this school they want things to change but they don’t do anything to change it.
