CAHS was a wonderful experience for my eldest grandson who is now in the Air Force. He was a member of the band and chorus and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. He had success in his classes and has the skills to succeed in the college classes he takes while in the Air Force.

This School District is a joke. They let kids bully constantly and are always trying to blame the kid who is being bullied. They should be ashamed of theirselves. If i have to take my kid out of school to cyberschool because they have their 'SPORT' favorites then let it be because your kid won't get anywhere in this school unless they are an athlete.

I'm a brand new student at Charleroi High School and I just enrolled this '09-'10 school year. It was VERY hard to make friends and yet, I still haven't. The teacher's are nice, friendly, helpful and easy to talk to. However, for students attending this school as a new student will have a hard time making friends. I moved here from out of state and haven't made but one friend. The other students are very 'cliquey' and only associate with people within their 'cliques' and it's definitly hard to find your place in this school. I already decided to transfer schools. I had an open mind coming into the school year, but it wasn't any help.

They are a school on the cutting edge of technology. The teachers care about the students and help them enjoy learning. They are a small but proud school. The students know the importance of a good education.

I graduated in 2007 and had the time of my life at Charleroi. I received an excellent education and had a lot of fun while learning. The teachers are very personable and easy to get along with and the principals and superintendent are very friendly and they help with college applications and guiding you to a good choice. The choice of classes is excellent and they help you prepare for college no matter if it is a core class or honors class.

As a sudent at Charleroi Area school district I have learned to appreciate all my teachers and what they have taught me. I have learned more then I thought I would have ever learned. The school district has recently put in a pond to serve as a outdoor ecosystem. They call it 'The Big Puddle'. I think that the project was a great sucess and aids in the education of 6th, 7th and 8th grade.

I was a student at Charleroi several years back and I feel I received an education that suited me well for college. They did a wonderful job of preparing me and I believe the school had a big part in me actually graduating college as well.

I know this might sound like a brochure, but this school is small enough to care and big enough to matter. Class sizes range from as little as 8 to about as high as 28. The principals are very fair with the students and the superintendent is visible in the hallways on any given day. It has a good mixture of older/proven teachers and younger teachers who bring new and exciting ideas into the classroom. The students and teachers seem to have a good rapport with one another and school spirit can be seen througout the hallways. Also, this school is on the brink of adding technology into the hands of every student. I'd say this school is very under appreciated from those who don't know any better or fail to investigate it for themselves.

We're actually moving solely based on the poor performance of Charleroi Schools. The teachers who we have delt with are not interested in providing a quality education. They have NO tutoring programs. We are currently researching the local private schools to finish out the year and then planning on moving to a better school district even if the house has not sold. I gave teachers/administration the benefit of the doubt and ended up regretting it.

Charleroi Area High School seems to be going under a restructuring process in the latter years. Hence, experimentation of ideas has been underway with many good results, and some bad ones, too. The school is continually opening new programs to students with some of the best teachers in the region.

Worst school area I have ever lived in. Teachers don't put any extra effort in. There are those teachers that really know how to shoot down your childs self esteem! Let's address the school dress policy, hmmmm what dress code is there, oh that's right it is in the hand book, but never gets followed. If you want your child to have a future take them out of Charleroi Schools. They have a few good teachers, but wait the district will destroy them as well.

Teachers seem to be uninterested in the children's education, almost as if it's a chore to teach.I feel sorry for the students that have to attend this school including mine.
