As with anything in life, you reap what you sow...the effort you put into something directly correlates with what you receive and achieve. Education is no different. Every school has its challenges and every child faces his or her own issues. It is up to every parent to advocate for his/ her children and support educational efforts. If the parents are involved and value education the children are more likely to be successful. Students who have parents who support their education and are on top of things are more motivated to put forth the effort to succeed. The school needs to provide a safe place for learning to occur and the teachers need to provide challenging, relevant lessons to teach the curricula to meet NYS standards. But we can't do it alone. The students have to want it and that desire does not happen by itself.

This school focuses more on sports, mostly the bad one such as the football team. the fencing team has won more than 25 county championships, is great for the kids to learn discipline, yet gets no attention. the football team hasn't won anything more than one game since 200! and yet, the school decides to put in a multi-million dollar turf football field with lights for night games. the fencing team is using equiptment from 1970!! The principal is doing an amazing job. The assistant principals are the worst, they dont know what theyre doing and they think suspending people is the best thing for them when they decide to do nothing!

CHS is a decent school. Not the best and not the worst. The job gets done if your child is willing. You do have to stay ontop of things. The administration does not do for you, so you do have to push. Actually the administration is probably one of the worst I have seen in years. The kids do go to college but the work must be done by the parent. CHS is lacking more of the upper level classes (such as more college courses and the IB course). How can our children compete for college if the school doesn't have the same programs as other schools do? They do have enough after schho activities and the music program is fantastic. All in all the students do well as long as they have a strong parental support.
