I feel it depends on the student. Some student were there to learn and prepare for college and the teachers were very effective. However, you had an equal number of students who are just there taking up space with bad attitudes and no respect for themselves or the teachers. Waiting for the day they can walk across the stage whether they earned the right to not
I feel the school has great teachers who work very hard to develop these characteristics in the students. However, from what I have seen and heard, administration and teachers are not alway on the same page.
I am a Junior at this school and it has been the worst experience. For starters there are wayyy to many students to only have one counselor. Secondly, the children here are extremely rude, they swear in front of everyone, they do not care about their appearances and or grades. Only a handful of students are actually good people, and I truly feel sorry for them. I am getting out of this school as soon as possible. Please to not let the nice appearance of the building fool you like it did me and my mother.
STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS!!!! I am a student (freshman) who attends CHTHS and if you are given the opportunity of a school with better education, take it! You basically sit and take computerized tests all day, which I am at least 99.9% positive will not bring you any new knowledge that you have already learnt from middle school. I feel like an outsider at this school because I feel as if I am the only one who really cares about their grades. Also, the school still seems like it's in the process of being developed. The only thing I like about this school is that it's small, which can also be a bad thing, depending on how you look at it.
So far so good! My son is in his freshman year at Cornerstone and he loves it here. I asked him, what is it that he like about the school? He states: "the teachers treat us like we are capable of making the right decisions, they give us freedom to complete our work, and they have patience". He also like the small but formal setting. I think the principle and staff are doing a really good job! Did I mention this is a tuition free school? Anyone who lives in the local area may want to consider this school.
I was in total amazement when I walked through the doors of the new school. You walk in and you feel excited to have a school of this magnitude in your community. Technology is in every classroom, and their educational model is not only preparing students for college, but to be competitive in whatever career path they choose. Don t take my word, come by and visit, that s what I did.
CH+THS is a wonderful place to work. The teachers are very collaborative, innovative and truly care about student success. It's exciting to see the growth into the brand new facility and expand opportunities for students to engage in career-driven, real world learning.
I like the online learning program and the weekly progress report. Conerstone Charter Health High School is using technology to support and prepare my daughter for college and career training beyond high school. -- Angelique Vaughn, a parent
