My daughter has done well at Cheatham County High. It is a small community and I think the school could do more to assist the kids with finding scholarships and preparing for college but, I do understand not every kid will choose the college path. They are improving the honors program and AP classes but, it's a work in progress. I would say for a small town, country high school it's not bad. I hope they continue to improve in the future. They need more parent support and improve the sports programs. They do not provide transportation for the cross country team or the track teams and I'm sure other sports also. I think there is room for improvement but funding is an issue. When you live in a rural community this is a problem you run into. Overall I am satisfied with this school.
Teacher turnover is high especially this year. No honors classes, No AP classes. Clubs are not allowed to meet so there is no point in joining one. No real leadership. Communication with parents is lacking. Website is empty. I wish I had researched this school district before moving here. Word of mouth about a school is not always the most reliable way to choose a school. My biggest regret.
High teacher turnover. No stability. Lack of leadership. Failing opportunities for high student achievers. Undervalued and unsupported extra curricular activities. Lack of respect from the administration for student body achievement. Until there are new School Board members and a REAL Director of Schools, look elsewhere to educate your child.
CCCHS is such a great school . This is the type of school you would most definitely want your kids to come to . They have great curriculum activities for your child . CCCHS is truly amazing !
I have had a problem with this school for years. It is horrible. Students struggle here because they are not being taught anything. They need to get a grip on their students and teachers. Communication from faculty to parents is horrible. Someone needs to take control and make this school a better learning portal for our children. In the past they have lost seniors credits, had students arrested for silly things that could have been handled diffrently and set silly rules for our children to follow. There is so much more they need to worry about like the graduation rate. DO SOMETHING FOR OUR CHILDREN NOW!
I'm a parent of a senior this year and I would have to say that overall my dealings with CCCHS have been unsatisfactory. The counselor has been less than helpful and when a complaint was raised to the principal, excuses were made. I'm thankful that I have several years to go before I have another entering high school and hope that things are better by that point. My son has told me numerous times that his counselor is pretty much "unavailable" when he has questions. Communication is horrible and why have a website if you're not going to keep it updated for parents to reference. There is a broadcast message system in place in the county, why not use it to notify parents of important dates, etc.
I graduated from Cheatham Co. Central in 2008, and I can honestly say that the school did a great job preparing me for college. In part, the reason is because of the extra curricular activity, Upward Bound. Cheatham is the only school in the county that offers that. There are some weird regulations when it comes to being in the top ranking, but that could have been because our requirements were changed my senior year. All in all, it is a great school. If I could go back and decide where to go, regardless, Cheatham would be it. (:
Only 2 classes for advanced/gifted students. Only two dual enrollment classes to be offered 2010/2011 school year, and no AP classes. The other high schools in the area have at least 10 of these advanced classes.
Well i have been goin here since 07 i believe and i have to agree the education here is great. The teachers are great and now since we have a new principal, our school is getting back to its old self. I love CCCHS, and the teachers here.
My daughter attends CCCHS and I am proud of the education she is receiving. The programs are being built up and more advanced classes are being offered. It is a great school.
I have two children who attend this school and it seems more like a social playground than an educational facility. My children are not challenged, the school does not cultivate a good culture of the students and the admin staff is not approachable or helpful.
Our child is in her 1st & last semester here. We hate for her to move schools in the middle of freshman year but we are moving her to a private school. First we don't believe the block schedule is working the way it was intended. Our child never has homework b/c they are allowed to do it during class. This does not correspond with guidelines set forth by the state but there appears to be nothing we can do about it. The students have a 40 minute 'enrichment' period 3 times per week, so that struggling students can receive tutoring. The remaining students do not receive any type of educational instruction. They are allowed to just hang out. This time appears to be more of a free-for-all. She is not challenged academically & is bored in all but one of her 4 classes. The Principal & most staff, seem professional.
I'm very disappointed in this year. It appears that the rehab is the only focus this year. Academics and sports have been shoved to the back seat at our children's expense.
i just graduated from this school, this is best school i have attended. i LOVED it! the teachers and principals were great.
I currently attend ccchs and I love it to death. Our teachers are strict, but great. We now have an act prep class...Also our basketball team is one of the greatest...Just because the coaches tell the team what is right and what is wrong doesnt change the fact that we work hard and all the teams bust their butts to win. The parents even come to help even though it is a high school.
I think this school has no class. Especially the girls basketball team as well as their coach. One day they will watch what they say because...what goes around comes around! But you won't be as lucky.
I have read several parent and former students reviews from the other schools in our distict and I just want everyone to know that Cheatham Central High School does not give the athletes any special treatment. The grade you make is what you get and if you don't have the grade you don't play. They are held to higher standards than other students. They represent the student body at all times. I do believe though the curriculum could be expanded. They do need an ACT preparation course and this was addressed with the school board and director of schools; without reply. However, the other 2 high schools have this for their students. Also, policy and procedure is always followed. The majority of teachers do believe that academics comes first. I am a former student from years ago and an involved parent. I do believe though parents could be more involved.
Cheatham County High School is a great place to be able to learn. My child has been to two different high schools and it is obvious that Cheatham is the better school. I wish I would have sent my child over here all four years of high school. I would gladly recommend Cheatham to anyone who asks.
I believe that Cheatham County High School is an outstanding environment for my children to be a part of. The staff is very caring and concerned with the well-being of the children that attend. I would never send them anywhere besides Cheatham County High School.
