I graduated from CHS last year and I can say my experince could and should have been better. Most of the teachers were nice, but some were anything but, Unfortunatly CHS is not good a preparing you for the outside world depending on what classes you take and who you have because CHS has rather "Interesting" teachers. It's a nutshell they make all these promises and gurentes that you can vist any time and every thing will be alright, BUT the basically abandon you right after graduation, Some go teach to another school and you never see them again, If your a student at CHS and nervous about graduating and leaving, Good luck finding support cause they are any thing but helpful.

Idiotic Principal leadership, pretends they are doing your child a favor when they are really stabbing them in the back. I will be removing my child as soon as possible.

CHS is a terrific school. Academically, it is one of the top high schools in the state, its athletic teams are competitive across the board, and the school is truly part of the city. Its ties to the community are more like what you'd find in a small town, certainly not like most other suburbs - and it is within walking or biking distance for most students.

CHS has amazing teaching techniques and cares about all of its students. The teachers are fantastic and really excell in the area of helping your children learn.

it's a great school if you fit the cookie cutter idea of what a student should be, completely unwilling to help those who need different learning styles. they blame it all on the student with out doing their part to try and help the student succeed

If you take advatage of what the school offers, it's a great school. The football program is great; Coach Leair's program is a great experience.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Wisconsin used the Wisconsin Student Assessment System (WSAS), which includes the WKCE and WAA, to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 10 in math and reading, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in language arts, science and social studies. The WSAS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Wisconsin. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level. In private schools, only voucher program participants are tested.

The different student groups are identified by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. If there are fewer than 5 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group. Subgroup scores for each school are only reported for students who were enrolled as of the fall enrollment count. The All students score includes results for all students who took the test, regardless of when they first enrolled in the school.
