Corvallis High School in Corvallis, Montana has a strong academic program that provides a challenging work atmosphere for students,;but rarely is mentioned the influx of students from other Western States and other communities in the Bitterroot Valley. This has really changed the social dynamics of the school.
The Corvallis School District is amazing! I attended Corvallis schools for 6 years then had to move. I've attended 3 different high schools since and am now a senior and planning on going back to graduate from Corvallis. No other school compares to Corvallis! There are no cliques, everyone gets along with everyone. No kid is neglected and all staff AND students are willing to help eachother. I love Corvallis!
This is the best school in all of Montana. No one is neglected in this school. We take pride in our sports as well as our education. We just won Boys State Track by a blow out. In Boys soccer we were in the top four teams for state in Montana. our basketball team is going to state. IN girls Softball we are amazing. There is no reason why not to send your child to Corvallis
Corvallis High School is a great school. I am currently a senior and would choose it hands down to any of the neighbor schools in the valley. The teachers are for the most part, great, and Mr. Laboski, the principal, is one of the most friendly guys i know. School spirit has improved greatly this year, and sports are really excelling too. I would recommend it to any newcomer to the valley.
as a 2006 graduate, i don't think I could have been more prepared for college by CHS. I went into all of my classes feeling like I already knew the base material, so learning everything else was a snap. AP classes challenge the students who need it, but I don't feel that they were needed for college success, so no fear if you haven't taken any. Students are always friendly too. As far as sports go, Corvallis has had phenomenal teams the last few years. Just in the last five, many have been state contenders. Mens and Women's basketball have been championship contenders, wrestling has had amazing success at state, with a new set of state champions, Mens Tennis has won state multiple times, both track teams have had state champtions and top times in the state the last 8 years, and volleyball always shows well at the state tournament.
As a teacher for a nearby school working hard to teach at Corvallis i am offended by the review on Jan 22. Funding is not the fault of the school but the 'Good ol Boy' Montana government which runs the schools on laughable budgets. Thanks Brian! But this school pushes on, seventy year old buildings, ancient boiler, etc. This school is an enigma in the world of Montana education: Well maintained, clean, excellent teachers, and hard-working administration. The Super is not rogue and works hard to listen to the community.
unfortunatly I don't have anything good to say about this school. It did not challenge you in anyway, and most definatly doesn't prepare you for life. The teachers are all very easy on the students, and generally their teaching plans don't prepare you for the next grade. I recommend hamilton or stevi.
Corvallis High School is a good school if you are into sports or going to college. The kids that are not great students or good athletes are rather ignored
At Corvallis High School, academic programs are good. There are many clubs to get involved in, and students gain a lot from them. Availability of music, art, sports, and extracurriculars are amazing. Students are offered a wide range of choir and band possibilities, as well as sports and clubs. CHS sports compete very highly with other valley schools, and are some of the best. Parent involvement in the school district is great as well. The students get along very well with eachother, and the learning environment is for the most part good. Most teachers care for what they are doing, and there are healthy relationships between teachers and students. Corvallis High School is one of the top schools in the valley and will make a great school for any new students to the surrounding areas.
Everyone raves about the quality of education at Corvallis. It is not all it is talked up to be and not as well rounded as it could be. We have some very fantastic and dedicated teachers mixed in with some dead beats. Recent changes in administration gives hope, more change higher up is needed. Our test scores are not anything spectacular when compared with the state average which leads me to believe our academic progress is the same. We have many extracurricular activities (music, arts, sports) but few, other than wrestling, compete consistently with programs of other schools our size (underfunded, undercoached, underadministrated, no motivation, no spirit). The Superintendent dictates the direction of the school on his own terms so, if you want to be productively involved, you better be ready to brown nose. If you have an athlete, don't expect anything here. Winning and competeing are not stressed here.
I am a sophomore at Corvallis, and I could not ask for a more wonderful education. The teachers really care about me, and I can relate on a personal basis with them, as well as with my peers. The student body is warm and welcoming, and there is no 'popular group' that excludes everyone else. The current principal, Mr. Laboski, is a great administrator. He is friendly and will greet students in the hall by name. The faculty really take the time to make the school wonderful. I love it here! The only thing I could improve is the discipline level regarding drugs, which are rampant in the Bitterroot Valley. Extracurriculars are great, as well as the music programs. This is the only orchestra in the Bitterroot, and it is well-run and a lot of fun. There is something for everyone here. I highly recommend it to anyone in the area!
My daughter is a freshman at Corvallis, and she came home from school on the first day and declared, 'I love high school!' Corvallis is an all-around excellent school. She is the only freshman in her sophomore math class, and one of two freshman in her video arts class, and enjoys both classes immensely. The music programs are outstanding, and parent involvement, as far as I can see, is very good. Every day she comes home enthusiastic about getting her homework done to get a good grade. I have not found this high quality education anywhere else in the Bitterroot Valley. I highly recommend this school.
My child has been attending Corvallis School District for 7 (seven) years and I have seen nothing but improvement with confidence, grades and extra curricular activities. I love the small town atmosphere where you know that every individual matters. My son has only good things to say about his teachers and I can't help but agree.
