The teachers that work for Colonial Heights City Public Schools are amazing. Each and every one of them takes their time to genuinely help their students! I have made all A honor roll since second grade, when I moved here, and I would not have been able to do it without the help of all of my wonderful teachers! In high school there are many clubs. I believe there is a club for everyone. Everyone has somewhere they can fit in. Since the city is so small, Colonial Heights City Public Schools are a family.

I came from another country and directly placed in Colonial Heights High School. At the time, I did not speak very good English but with time, effort and mistakes, I happened to speak English before 6 months since I started school. Staff were great, they were very helpful, they helped me to progress in my second language and also to have a good High School experience. However, I wish they would've improved certain things while I was still in High School. For example, food is not the greatest. I've gotten sick twice because of the food, they didn't have varieties. They mostly serve pizza and burgers and raps. At the same time, there was not the diversity as anyone is hoping to see. Not that is a problem, but very few understood that I didn't speak English and made fun of me. But besides those two things, the overall was great-ish.
Colonial Heights is not the best but it’s home and everyone knows everyone and is friends. Our sports teams aren’t great but they play their hearts out and we all have school spirit. Every student that comes through Colonial Heights is beyond well prepared for what comes next in their lives, whether it be college or straight to the workforce. Our school provides many opportunities to earn college credit before actually going to college because they want the students to have an upper hand when applying.
