Coffee High is alright.They just worry about the little things instead of the big things.They need to figure out a plan for the bathrooms.I hate when I half to walk to the front just to use the restroom.That restroom is just like the others but worse.If they really cared about the smoke or vandalism in the restrooms they would try to get people.Another thing is the drug dog.They can bring the drug dog how many times they want to.Its not helping.Once somebody see the drug dog they text all their friends and it goes on.I think we should be allowed to have cellphones in the cafeteria.The Cafe' is not a class.Im surprised they dont get onto us for having gum in the hallways..lol.They act like were in Pre-K.When I was in middle school I felt like a high schooler.Now I feel like an Elementary Student.I could write a book about CHS!

My child is a junior at coffee high , he has had really good teachers, jessica baker is one of the best teacher that a child could have. She's not only a good teacher but she's a very sweet person who cares for her students.

CHS is a terrific school. I have enjoyed my time spent at CHS. The schools clubs and student organizations are prime examples of the progress and learning that is going on in CHS. This year alone FBLA, FFA, FCCLA, HOSA, and NJROTC will be attending National Competitions all across the U.S. and represent CHS. I have been lucky enough to be apart of a few of these great clubs and believe the teachers that take time out of their lives to make our high school experience the best they can. CHS is know as a leader in many student organizations throughout the country because our clubs have held many state and national offices during the past few years. Currently CHS is home to three State officers: FFA State President, Key Club State Governor, and the Student Council Co-Presidents. We are prepared for ultimate success of CHS.

Coffee High School has been a very warm and helpful place as long as I have had a child at CHS. The teachers work with the children to in sure that they are learning all the information and stay in close contact with the parents. CHS has been a great school. CHS has many after school activities and programs to help your child. My son has really enjoyed CHS.

Coffee High School is a safe and great learning community. The teachers really care about the students and do everything in their power to ensure every student an equal chance at learning. CHS is very tied to the community and works with the community to make their students prepared to go out into the real world. CHS is a great school and I am proud to be apart of this terrific school.

CHS cares nothing about your child. The councelors tell kids to quit and get their GED instead of working and helping the child through hard and difficult unsure times.

Coffee High School is a great school. Even though they are having problems keeping the students in a safe learning environment. This year alone they have made decipline procedures for the dress code, I.D. procedures, tardes, absences and skipping alot more effective and harsh to handle the problem they were having last year. As of this years safety the school has not been doing so well. The Principle Ms. Danna is trying to rectify this with a great success.

This is a great school to develop the whole student not just the standardized test robot like the charter schools. Coffee High School has teachers that really care about the students; and they really have to love their jobs because the salary for the teachers in this district is horrible. The teachers go out of their way daily to help the students and you can see the compassion just walking through the halls.
