Open Quote Toxic environment. Close Quote

Open Quote I worked at CHS and the students in General Education classes were extremely disrespectful and would talk over you. No consequences. The AP kids would have their parents complain to the school and grades would be changed. I've been to several schools (County Wide Teacher of the Year) and have no complaints from them. Close Quote

Open Quote My child has had superb experience at CHS (he is an 11th grader). I highly recommend this school. My child is a minority student and he has excelled through the many opportunities provided at CHS. My child has taken advantage of the opportunities that many others have not. I credit the excellent teachers and principal for developing a highly credible program with numerous opportunities for the children of this community. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
