My experience at CHHS was nothing short of GREAT. It has been a long time ago and I am sure things have changed, but I also note that the Southwest part of Capitol Hill has deteriorated a great deal. When I attended, home owners took a lot of pride in their homes /property. My recent travel in that area doesn't reflect that pride that existed back in the '50s, 60s and '70s. I would have to place blame on poor ratings on the entire area!! I have several brothers and sisters who are also CHHS alumni and we are not from a "well-to-do " background. If PARENTS will take the responsibility of their children's actions, teach them at home to have RESPECT FOR OTHERS,THEMSELVES AND OTHERS RIGHTS AND PROPERTIES, THEN AND ONLY THEN!! WILL YOU see the ratings of this once EXTREMELY proud High School return to the high ratings it once had!! ONCE A CHIEFTON -- ALWAYS A PROUD CHIEFTON! !

I love this school because of its diversity of students, and the wonderful memories I have from attending there. Almost all, if not all, students Capitol Hill High School live in poverty. The school has very little resources, and is in dire need of assistance. These kids need to feel good about going to school, and in order to do that they need facilities that they can be proud of. Please join me in voting for Capitol Hill High School to give these kids a chance to succeed.

i am a student at CHHS and i really enjoy it. CHHS is only a problem because the students have friends that have behavioral issues. if the student would have the right friends there would be no problem. i hang around the right students, so, so far my experiance at CHHS has been great. CHHS has really cracked down on having IDs and right uniform, we even have a truancy officer to stop the ditching, and tardiness. CHHS has made alot of improvements. they want to let the student have a great highschool experiance. CHHS is about to get re-modled starting later in the year, the whole campus will be done.

I attended Capitol Hill for the entirety of my secondary education, and though the school has its faults I enjoyed my time on the campus. The office staff is very helpful, and mostly bilingual, the faculty is also very devoted to the success of the students. As 3rd generation Alumni, I hope to send my CHcschildren to C

It is important to note that a child's true education begins in the home. Capitol hill high school is plagued by many problems which are not experienced in other schools. Okc public school system must share some of the blame for largely ignoring issues that should have been addressed long ago. Schools can only progress with parental involvement.
