Our kids have been at 3 of the 4 campuses thus far with CISD. The best principle for us to work with. He has always worked hard to keep us informed of what is happening on the campus. They send out weekly emails, phone calls and flyers come home with the kids.

The opportunities this school offers are amazing for a small school. The certifications offered, dual credit, extracurricular activities, AP classes, technology and academics are impressive! Not only that but the class size is extremely small (11:1) so I got the help I needed for my advanced classes. I went to Baylor but I also had classmates that went to MIT, West Point, Sewanee, NYU, Juilliard, Rice, SMU, Texas, Texas A&M, Tech, OU, LSU and many other awesome schools. I am proud to be a Tiger!

Commerce High School provides a path to success for every student. Through dual credit courses CHS students have the opportunity to earn college credits prior to graduation. Plans for expanded career readiness courses also meet the needs of Commerce students. Teachers and administrators ensure that all students are treated with dignity and fairness. Extracurricular activities round out a curriculum that provides a solid foundation in all disciplines as well as rigor needed to meet today's challenges. Technology plays a major role in engaging students in real world problems and solutions. CHS is a great place to grow and learn!

Commerce High School is a wonderful and progressive high school. The benefits of a smaller teacher to student ratio combined with impressive technology that rivals any school in the metroplex. I appreciate the attention and care that my child receives at this campus.

This is a school district that really cares about the students. The schools keep you well informed about events that are on-going in addition to the progress of your child. I feel so welcome and at ease to be able to come to administrators and teachers about my child. The communication among faculty and staff is amazing. After school seeing how smoothly transportation runs makes me feel safe about my child and other students getting to and from their destination. There is not just one area to speak on because there are so many reasons I am thankful we moved to here for school.

I love Commerce High! Since Virdie Montgomery took over as Prinicpal students actually exhibit more pride and leadership in our school. I transferred in from a small school out of my district and I have never been happier and have achieved more with the help of our Principal and teachers. I have great friends and wonderful support from my parents as well. You rock CHS!

I've been a student at Commerce High for going on my fourth year now. I've had my diffrences with the school board and many policies including Dress Code and discipline issues but overall it has been a good school. As far as music we have one of the best Band Directors in the the area. The Art department is good as well as the Drama department. Commerce does well in many sports including making it to State with football in 2000 and making it to district every year after. Extracurricular activites are also good.

I agree with the other reviewer, that football is given way too much emphasis, however the school leadership is the worst. Scholorships are given to students whose parents are friends of the councelor or principal rather than to students that really deserve them. The school has few qualified professionals to really motivate students or help them with problems.

Football is given too much money and the football players are allowed to get away with murder. they need to start drug testing all athletics, football players in particular.
