    My children went to CBHS and all 3 of them have turned out fine with good grades and good community support they received! The kids were in lots of activities and have become well rounded young adults! I am from this area and we locals know our children do not get the advanced college courses that city and larger schools do! If you sek these things then please move to place that the school system provides what you want! If you want more 1 on 1 with teachers and students then stick to Basin!

    This school is so dramatic that its not even funny the principal -JARED BIGHAM- and the unneccesary assistant principal- PAT SMITH- are both ignorant pains in the neck. They start drama with a select few students. they dont allow children to call home when they are sick they dont allow children to be tardy to classes and if they are than they get in school. The cell phone policy is a bunch of bull. As far as My self and My teen is concerned this school deserves to be shut down. It is repulsive

    small town school does has benefits but if you are looking for big town opportunities don't come here. I like the community and the school that's why I choose to live here.

    This school is not financially capable to tend to students needs who are smarter than there grade level. There is not program in which students can take ap classes and there is not a program in which the students can take college courses off campus and get high school credit for it also.
