I have put 4 children through CHS, LMS, and Max Larsen\Edison. The youngest is now a Junior. I've seen it all! I am very proud to say they all received a great education and have done very well at their respective universities. They have participated in band, YIG, student goverment, sports, etc., the opportunties are there if you take advantage of them. My kids are all unique indivuals and the school met their needs. My stepson graduated from Quincy, and you know, they aren't a perfect as all their PR would lead you to believe, every school faces problems and challenges. A school can only be as good as YOU make it. Also,I think Mr. Milnes is a great Principal. GO CARDINALS!

I am a parent of a Senior and a Freshman at Coldwater High School. I have been very happy with our public schools and am pleased with the quality education our children have received. Our Senior is headed to Saint Mary's at Notre Dame! Thank you Coldwater Public Schools for your continued dedication!

I am currently attending CHS, however I'm heavily considering switching to Pansophia. I'm a lover of sports, but i'm a fatty. I can't make the teams at CHS, but I do have skill, coach Petzko even said I was a better shooter than most kids he was keeping, and most my friends on the team knew I was better that most people on the team. They even tried to get me to try out my sophomore year. However, that's irregardless. I have had many great teachers so far at CHS. Jayme Spray was even one of my references for a job applications.

There are honors classes and AP classes available to students, music, choir, art, shop, sports (pay to play though), and extracurricular activities. Our child was very active in soccer and their program has been very bad for this sport. The current coach is better, but it was a major disappointment to our family. Parent involvement, in my opinion, is low. The same few parents do everything. This is not because of the school officials or teachers, it is due to the attitude of the community toward education. Foreign language was also a disappointment. Only two years of spanish in high school is available. The most relevant language to our country and kids can only get two years (nothing in Middle school). The teachers though are committed and involved with kids.

I went to Coldwater High School for four years, I graduated in 2004. I am proud to have gone to Coldwater, its my home school. The only problem I have is that the money distributed out to extracurricular programs is unfair. My sophmore year of high school I was on the varsity bowling team. We went all the way to the state conference, and placed first in all of Michigan. From the school we recieved a nice little announcement congradulating us, and that was all. All three years that the program was intact at CHS, we never recieved any support of any kind. We had a good program, that was actually successful. I just wish that CHS would be more willing to reach out to other programs, instead of just football, baseball, basketball and track. A quick thanks for actually accepting soccer!

Coldwater High School is a comprehensive high school that strives to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of all students. The instructional leader fully understands adolescent development and this is transformed into the on-going curriculum revisions at all levels. The teachers have made a genuine commitment to teach all students and their dedication is relfected in students' success at CHS. The environment at CHS is welcoming, safe, and a happy place for all teens!
