This is a very competitive school within a great school district. Many students enroll in challenging AP honors or accelerated courses. Many options are available for classes including many languages and upper level math and sciences. The teachers for the most part are well qualified and dedicated to teaching their subjects rather than dishing out A's. Although they are often tough on their students at the end of the day every student understands the material. A vast majority of students continue on to four year colleges many of which are well-know universities. Extra-curriculars as well as academic and service clubs are often stressed being in a college town where sports like basketball and football are big focuses. Our athletics tend to be good but they of course vary from year to year. Our arts department is very established with a various musical opportunities a large theater that often teams up with the tech crew to create well-known and original productions including a yearly musical. Overall a fantastic school by far among the best in NC.
The 5 & 6 grades for all the high schools in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School District appear to be caused by the supposed ~50% pass rate for the Algebra I end-of-course test. I highly doubt that these scores are accurate and there must have been a glitch in the uploading of this data.
I don't know how "GreatSchools" comes up with a grade of 5 for this superior High School (one of the best in the state). All three of my children attended the school received a great education went on to good colleges and then successful careers.
The school is amazing. It has it's failings. The Achievement gap persists thought the black and white kids outperform the national average and similar schools. We still haven't found a great plan for our Burmese refugee students but all around the kids are great the sports teams are great the teacher s work hard and the curriculum is rigorous.
Chapel Hill high school is a school for quick and psychologically strong kids. If your child is not bright and cant deal with stress well I wouldn't recommend it. Personally my experience goes against the crowd. This school has hurt me academically and I've lost all confidence I've ever had in myself. Instead of learning the teachers are way to concerned about grades gpa's and SATs. That is all any of the teachers care about. Not the actual learning part of highschool just the percentages and the outside looks. If you don't have a's you have nothing. The teachers individually are all usually nice but do not make an active attempt to help you learn. They give you little to no references to complete assignments as well as give challenging tests with little to no preparation. All in all my 2 years here have been incredibly traumatizing.
Strong academics decent administration. Parents may need to push a bit to make sure their student doesn't get channeled into a path that limits their achievement. With a lot of very bright outspoken competitive students in the school it's easy for the quiet kids to miss out on opportunities. That said my daughter had a very good experience at CHHS especially in the band program and has gone on to do well in college.
I loved going to CHHS when I was there. We had wonderful teachers that really cared; and the school embraced diversity. I recieved a well-rounded education and really enjoyed my time there.
Quality education is afforded to all students.
My daughter just started there and so far I'm really impressed by her teachers.
Our boys received an excellent education with caring teachers.
I came down from canada and did junior and senior year of high school at chapel hill high. It is a fantastic school and was a better experience than the private schools i went to in canada. I would definely put my kids there.
This is an excellent place to send your children. My child has received a wonderful experience and is a freshman in college right now. He is managing his classes much better than his peers because of the education he received here. The teachers are second to none and show a great deal of dedication to their students and to the school. It provides an excellent education and makes your child well-rounded well-versed in time management and prepared for life.
