I graduated from the class of 2008 and I absolutely loved the school. The teachers are all amazing, the extra curricular activities are fun no matter what it is you join, and it's just an all-around amazing school.

I am currently a Junior here at CPU highschool. I have attended many schools but this one is the best school i've ever gone to. We have alot of pride in what we are as a whole and we show it. our teachers are always there to help with anything from learnnig skills to post highschool plans. We also have a great athletic program with almost ever sport that a large 4A school would have. If you are looking for a place to belong this is it. Take it from me a current student.

Wonderful school! Teachers are very supportive of the students and go above and beyond expectations. The discipline may seem strict at first to newcomers, but the high standards make it a very safe learning environment. We may be a small school, but we have a vast number of extracurricular activities such as Physics Olympics to Basketball to Jazz band and Children's Theatre. Parents play a big part in the school. With a wonderful PTA program, parents have the opportunity to participate in their child's education...All over a wonderful, one of a kind, district=) I'd reccommend it to anyone=)
