To be honest, I wasn't the star student. But the teachers never gave up on me. I felt that the staff genuinely cared about me. The only thing I didn't like was the outdated textbooks and the policy. The policy needs to be less restrictive and kids will be productive. -Will W Class of 2014

The biggest problem with Colerain High School is that the behavioral issues are beyond horrendous.

Overall I like the school. I think it starts too early, but there isn't much that the school can do about that. The parents aren't the best influences on their children, but at this age they aren't too involved anyway.

I am a parent of an upcoming sophomore, and I have had nothing but positive experiences with the students and staff of Colerain High School. It is easy for me I to stay on top of my child's progress because his teachers update Progress Book regularly. The music program is incredible. My child is challenged and encouraged in both marching band and wind symphony. I have found the level of parent participation in the band program to be amazing. This only happens because of the excellent directors and how well they communicate with both the students and parents. I am confident my son is getting a well-rounded education that will prepare him for success in college. (This is, of course, contingent on this community supporting the district by passing the levy this November.) The person who commented on the school not using its money wisely needs to understand that the new scoreboards were paid for by the Colerain Booster organization. This money is raised through donations from alumni, parents of current students, and community members. NONE of it is tax money. The Colerain Boosters make it possible for students to follow their passion, whether it is in the arts or athletics.

It's a good school. However, They don't use their money wisely though. We could use buses (nope we don't have buses), new desks and books instead of new score boards and things for sports. The school is not air conditioned, so it's very hot in the summer. That's all i can complain about though. It's still a really good school, with tons of programs.

Hi, I am a Current Senior this year in Colerain High and I believe my school is a very good one. We have many excellent teachers who work hard to give us the tools we need for the future and college. I have had a great time at Colerain. I can be my self, even though I'm a very unique person who wears cat ears, but I am free to express myself and as the others who attend. We are so deverse! Our teachers deal with so much with so little and I believe I'm blessed by the staff of Colerain. There are so many classes for almost all individual. I have enjoyed all the art classes and history classes. There is such a selection. As well as math and english. But there are minor problems like all schools. Senior 2010!!!!

My daughter is a current Senior at Colerain High School and my son is a 2004 graduate. We love CHS. The administrators and staff are amazing. The academics programs are 2nd to none. They have a ton of extracurricular activies. Something for everyone. We could not be more pleased with the education our children have received at CHS and in the Northwest Local School District.

Hi, I am currently a junior at Colerain High School and I have some things to say about my school. This school is horrible...we learn nothing and all are school's money goes to sports, not new desk or books. I personally hate this school and wish I could move and go to a different school.

As parent of a Colerain High School student. I believe that this High school is very unique. It is very diverse and everyone seems to be very friendly. With the atmosphere being so family oriented, It helps with the learning environment. It's hard to think of transferring my child to another school district, especially when she comes home very happy from just being in school all day. So I tip my hat off to all of the staff and peers of my child.

As a parent that has had 2 kids graduate from Colerain and 2 more finishing their high school years, I can honestly say that the school has fulfilled their duties preparing my kids for college.

I recently graduated from Colerain High School and I loved it. I thought the AP programs were challenging and I am succeeding in college due to the excellent teachers and challenging, yet rewarding work load. I thought the music and athletic programs were top-notch and I thought the community was very close and the parent involvement was better than most schools. I loved my time at Colerain.

I feel Like Colerain has great diversity in leadership, wonderful programs for our kids, and the Levy not passing in not the fault of the school it is the fault of the voters! We need to take pride in our schools as a community!

I think Colerain is one of the worst schools in the city. Northwest is our district and we have 2 high schools, Colerain and Northwest, and I wish I had enrolled my kids at northwest. We dont have a bus system, and the school hasnt passed a levy in who knows how long. Instead of getting with the parents when a problem arises instead of after it happens the student fails. This in my mind is on the teachers shoulders and the principals. They need to start using the phone or the emails to notify the parents, not send a letter that will get there a week later.

World class football program overshadows most other activities, including academics. If you have a talented athlete sending them to school anywhere else would be criminal.

I lived in Cincinnati my entire life and I loved it! However last year I moved to Indianapolis and I hate it there. It really shows what a great school colerain is when you see how poor other schools are. The staff and students are trully wonderfull. I enjoyed being part of there fabouls music programs and sincearly wish I could go back!!! Unlike some other schools Colerain has different levals of classes so no one is left behind or not challanged enouff. Go cards!

As a senior this year I am disapointed that the school still has not fixed the computer issue. They are always breaking down and are not up to date. They are too slow and the printers do not work very often. The books should definitly be replaced to. They are tore up, written in, and some are not up to date. Most of the books I have recieved were in VERY poor condition. Most of the teachers are excellent though and do as much as they can with as little as they have. The administrators work well together and have everything in order.
