CCHS is the best. I am so grateful to all of the teachers, staff, and other students for making it such a wonderfully memorable experience for all three of my children. Each one has gone on to college fully prepared. One has already received his Master's and the other two are moving right along. Caney Creek's motto is...it takes a village...the entire Caney Creek family village...and you feel it the moment you walk through the front doors and as you embark on life after high school, you are always a part of the CCHS village.

We moved to this area from Houston and my first concern was that my boys would not get as good of an education in this smaller school than what they were use to. Was I ever wrong! Caney Creek has offered them an education and opportunities they would have never received in Houston. The staff genuinely care about the kids in this school and that's not something many schools can say! Caney Creek has been the best thing that has ever happend for my boys education!

I have had 1 child graduate from Caney Creek and still have 2 others now attending there. I wouldn't have my children anywhere else. I feel like they are safe and being well educated. The teachers are great and the administration is top notch. My youngest daughter is in the band and it is a wonderful program. We moved from another district when my oldest was in the 7th grade and I would have been very uncomfortable for my kids to attend high school there. Caney Creek is the best high school in this district or any other.

I attended this school and I would give it a okay review. When my daughter is in high school I would have to think about it a little because I noticed alot of discrimination on some of the students but academically I would give it twoo thumbs up.

I have my third son graduating this (2004) from Caney Creek High School and what a wonderful experience for my boys. The academics and staff are wonderful. i have been involved with Band for many years and have the most dedicated, school spirited, intellegent, loving, and caring group of teens I have had the pleasure of knowing. The majority of kids that graduate from Caney Creek have the knowledge and skills to succeed at lives challenges. I am proud of the students and faculty at Caney Creek High School.

I'm not a parent, but I did graduate from Caney Creek. The school has tons of school sprit, every one gets into football games and stuff. The teachers are friendly, and the amminastration staff are fair in every situation. The priciple is a very well respected man, and has no problem assocateing with every student and parent, and he is very involved. Although some former students would say he wasn't fair in some new rules, but only because they don't understand why they were changed. But everone gets along, and we have plenty of police to take care of minor situations if or when any actully happen. I beleve i graduated from one of the best high schools, and i truely hate not being able to go back every day.

My daughter is in the 12th grade at CCHS and has had a wonderful high school times. I have spent four years working with the color guard and marching band and I am so proud of the great help the teachers, staff, and coaches give these young adults.I will be proud to send my son to CCHS in three years.Thank you Dr. Poole. Go Panthers!
