This school sucks. The staff is terrible, the teachers don't teach and the work is hard. Too much homework also.

This school is truly remarkable. The sense of community and family is evident in every event we attend. It's hard to believe the school is only 3 years old. Our son graduated June 9th after three incredible years. The exceptional teachers and staff under the direction of Mr. Rob Jackson managed to pull together students transferred in from several different schools and combined into a formidable force. Academically, athletically and artistically, this school does it all and does it well. Always expecting excellence and achieving it. The teachers are caring and truly interested in helping kids succeed. We feel these past three years have been an incredible gift for our son and for our family. Cavalier Pride!

My senior is graduating tomorrow, and has had an excellent experience at Cuthbertson. The enthusiasm of the teaching staff is contagious, making a fabulous learning environment for the kids. There is a wide variety of courses to choose from, including a long list of AP classes. I can't say enough good things about CHS, and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a top-notch education for their children.

Excellent school, all round, great collaboration between parents and staff, beautiful facility - can't say enough good things about this high school. As a father of 3 girls I see the High School experience as the major key to forming well rounded contributors to our future economy. Cuthbertson High School has everything I could hope for on this level an much more.

Cuthbertson has been an awesome experience. As someone who came in to the new high school and is now a junior I can recommend it - honor school of excellence from opening year and all round a great school to attend from every perspective.

Principal of the Year for North Carolina, Mr Jackson has worked tirelessly to make Cuthbertson High School the excellent environment it is and has been since opening. Kids love this school - the building and facility is pristine and the teachers and students are evidence of his hard work and commitment. Students of this school have established the most amazing team spirit out of their original redistricting from Marvin, Weddington and Parkwood High Schools.

Cuthbertson High School is not just a school, it is a FAMILY! I am so impressed with the relationship the staff has with the students. They care and respect each other. It is apparent at all the school and sporting events that I've attended. Awesome staff + awesome kids = THE BEST HIGH SCHOOL EVER (and that's PRICELESS)!

This School is great. We moved from NY a year ago and they did not have all the technology aides that this school gives these kids. The kids and parents have a great sprit for this school. It looks like a collage campus. My dealings with the teachers has been incomparable to what we have been use to. If you want to find out what grade your child received on a test you can go on a web site and pull it up daily. I love the Principal and Staff. Thank you for doing such a great job for our kids.

All of the students who live in our neighborhood show a strong sense of school pride for Cuthbertson High School. For a new school, they have already proven themselves to be great in both the boy's and girl's sports and their academics! I enjoy watching the football games on Friday nights at their new stadium and seeing families of all ages who show up and enjoy the community spirit. We are so proud of the principal, who has been selected for the North Carolina Principal of the Year!

Seems tolerance on bullying is okay. Our son has been called names, harrazed, and physcally assulated. What next going YouTube or hospital. Poor job Mr. Rob Jackson and Dr. Cherly Jones. Thanks for always "we are investigating" and then our son gets detention because he stood up for himself and being disruptive in class!!!???!!!

Fantastic school with great spirit and collaboration. Students are happy to be in school and enjoy it to the maximum potential. The teachers are very well educated with maximum motivation for each student. Staff members are friendly and well trained making everything run smooth. Very little or if not any fights. The last thing you think of this school is a safety concern. The school is very advanced with smart boards and flat screen TVs in every room. Surveillance is state of the art with a minimum risk of an intruder on top of a great location. The stadium is one of the nicest in Union County and all fields are looked after. School spirit is one of the best and the unification of students is even more impressive. I must say, "I am proud to be a Cavalier".
