I's a nice school. Dr English and his fellow faculty are very devoted to students. I'm happy my son find his schoolhood here fantacitic.

This is the best school in the state the principal dr. English is a fair to all kids he treats the football players and band kids all the same if the football team gets free breakfast then the band gets a free breakfast. The sports are amazing. Volleyball just won area, marching band just made all superiors at completion, the football team is better than ever theater is going to trump hour. It's is the best school in Alabama. The teachers are involved and supporting and this is the school I wold send my kids to!

If you want to take a step backwards, enroll your kids at CHHS. Classroom teaching is mediocre at best, and everything is about who kids' parents are, not what the kid can do. The new superintendent is an old health/p.e. coach with a mentality to match his background. The principal is no better. But, if you are one of the "chosen" ones, the teachers will let you buy your kids' grades by buying supplies for their classrooms.

Things are very cliquish at this school. If your parent is not an employee of the school system or the local university it doesn't matter how hard you work it will not be recognized, you will be left out of things, etc. I had high hopes for this school but after my child being pushed down and out of things even though she had higher grades than others we decided to leave.

My daughter is a senior this year and is graduating with honors. She was never much for sports or chearleading but has found the extracurricular activities and clubs welcoming. The Spanish Teacher is the best in the world and really pushed my child to become bilingual. She made learning another language fun and in our diverse world of today it's a very useful skill. The math department also has a great teacher that really explains everything well so that my daughter can understand Calculus before going on to UAB after she graduates. Not many Alabama schools offer Calculus at all. The new administration does a great job keeping things safe and in control. Overall it has been a good school for my daughter.
