In recent years, this school has dramatically decreased in quality. Many of my former teachers have expressed with sadness that some time around my graduating class '09 or '10, the quality of education and student motivation is nothing but disappointing. Even graduating this school in the top 10 couldn't prepare me for life at the University of Georgia. Oh and those former teachers I was talking? Most of them were laid off with the dip in the economy or retired after new administration took over. And ALL of those teachers were in the math and science areas, with a few in history or English or AP classes. I mean the BEST teachers. The ones that were tough but they TAUGHT. The football coaches stayed, of course. Even though they don't contribute to education much at all. The extra-curriculars are this schools only redeeming point. Programs like band and ROTC most likely kept more kids out of trouble and getting pregnant than there would've been without them. Teachers have also told stories of admins deciding whether to buy iPads for labs for no reason while the school faced bankruptcy if it didn't preserve paper. Now, I'm trying to get my parents to send my little sister elsewhere.
I moved to Cairo High from Thomas County Central. If I had to choose which school to attend, it would be Cairo. It is smaller and to me it seems more down to earth, and I can just be myself.
Cairo High School is like any other high school. The social status means a lot there whether your a teacher or a student. Every organization in this school thinks it is the most important thing happening and nothing else matters. This does tear some of the students apart. From my point of view in all my 4 years there the only people who can say that these were the best years of my life are the people that everyone claims you have to like.
I am a former homeschool mom and am currently a teacher at another school. I do recommend the school. As with any institution there are strengths and weaknesses. The strengths outweigh the weaknesses. Both of my older children have received a quality education at CHS. I do intend to have my youngest attend CHS also.
This is a great school! The teachers, the community, the principal-- everything is wonderful and it was a great experience teaching there. The extra-curricular activities are exceptional, especially football and band.
Having attended Cairo High School, my advice for parents is to explore private school options elsewhere. I felt totally unprepared when I began college at the Unversity of Georgia, and I believe quite firmly that it was because I attended CHS. The focus is shifted away from academics toward athletics. When I attended, the school offered only 1 AP course, and by the time I entered 11th grade, they no longer offered that!
this school is the best i have a daughter that goes here and she loves it alot. if you live in Ga near Cairo High school you should send your child there because this school is a very good school and i remend people to visit here and check it out for their kids
