    I was shocked to read the score given for this school! I think maybe when concidering a new school I will investigate further and possably talk to locals before making a final choice. 2 of our sons have attended cchs.My children have been cursed at (not once but 5 different times) hit ( 2 times) called names. Mind you this is from the assistant principle and another teacher. I am not a difficult parent many parents feel more passionate than I on this. My sons were raised right. Tought to show others respect and to treat people fairly. This environment does not enforce these values. We are actually leaving the area with this being one of our main issues.

    I am a graduate of CCHS. Cumberland Country High school has its ups and downs like any other school. I believe there was not as much educational opportunity there as compared so some other schools in other counties. However with the right teachers and the right classes a student can be well prepared for higher education. The advanced courses were well taught and I feel challenged me enough to be ready for college.

    I too worried about the lack of diversity having moved my child from a much larger city (out of state) that had a much more diverse community but my child adjusted just fine at CCHS. We too liked the block schedule it does allow for a lot of material to be covered but as a parent I miss the homework I would like a chance to better 'see' the progress of my child's day-to-day work. Cumberland County is facing a dilemma in the upcoming school year with the addition of Stone Memorial High I'm praying this does not split the community into the 'have's' and 'have-not's. Good luck Crossville!

    I am a student at CCHS and i love it! Mr.E is awesome and most of the teachers are really cool and good teachers and there are tons of extra activities and cool electives. The school also has tons of school spirit! The jets soar off the charts for my ratings. I would recommend this school to anyone!

    I am not a parent but a student. I am a sophmore and I love the school. Our class will be the last to graduate before the new high school is opened. The last two years have been wonderful. The teachers are amazing. Every student receives the encouragement and attention that they deserve. I don't know what I would have done if I didn't have that. Being a straight A student I get a chance to experience many things.

    CCHS Rules. The block schedule is very good. In having this schedule we can have more time to do work in a day and not have near as much homework. The school tries to get everyone involved in some type of activitiy. In doing so they have now formed a Mr. CCHS pagent. It will be awesome. Thank you and have a nice day. Smile! )

    I am not a parent but a student and I truly love the school. I mean there are downs at times especially when parents complain about the teachers not working hard enough for 'their kid' it gets really annoying. I think the school is wonderful and treats kids the way they should be treated when they need to be discplined they are. Our principal is leaving and all though we are sad we are also excited about the new one coming in.
