The teachers not only encourage their students to succeed, they allow their students to cultivate goals, ideas, and talents. Everyone from the janitor staff to the assistant principals provide support and warm/personable interactions.

I feel the academic program is excellent and all of my teachers in high school have been extremely helpful and want to see me succeed. The principal and vice principal at the middle school were terribly rude and didn't involve themselves with the students at all unless they felt they were supreme athletes. The middle school is totally biased and I feel that is wrong for children especially at that age. However, in intermediate, elementary, and high school it has been very interesting for me so far.
I have only been attending public schools since starting high school, however it is obvious to me that Duneland is at the top of its class. The entire staff at CHS is devoted to helping students do their best and reach their full potential, as well as creating a strong community environment.
