    My school has great team spirit and a terrific football team. But it is time they split up the High Schools. The student to teacher ratio is Wow and the kids are stuffed in their like sardienes.

    I am a former student. Most teachers at CCHS prioritize students for their name in the community. I felt neglected at CCHS obtained a 1.9 GPS and had to move to Westwood to graduate with a 3.85 GPA. I do not plan on sending my child to this school.

    I have been a parent a grandparent and a teacher to Campbell County kids for a number of years. I have to say that having moved away a couple of times to pursue my education my kids were always advanced in comparison to the 'new schools' and I attribute that to the quality of education Campbell County offers now and in the past. My one wish now would be to see parents and school personnel join together and put a stop to the relentless bullying that goes on in the schools at all levels.

    I am a former student of this institution and believe it prepared me for college and graduate school through the instruction from skilled teachers. I also played athletics and had a great social life credited to the school I went to. The only issue I had was commuting between campuses. And my social life was rather full of drinking smoking and sex. But this wasn't the case for a lot of students for peer pressure wasn't very big.

    As public schools go this one is well funded but chooses to put all its funds into athletics and vocational learning. The selection of college prep courses was pathetic and in my time there was only on AP course offered. C'mon Campbell County--you can do better than this! It's a school and a district with enormous potential; it would be exciting to see what an administration with some vision could do.

    Ha! I am also a former student and while CCHS does seem to have its priorities a little mixed up when it comes to sports and acedemics it is still a good school. Good teachers were more like Thor Gunderson Carol Bierbaum and Suzan Newberry. They are assets and among some of the best teachers I ever had including college professors. Perhaps if you have the chance to go back and 'teach yourself' you can pay attention to your writing skills a little better. Sports art music and other academic activities such as DECA and Speech and Debate are very available and seem to have good program leaders.

    I believe that parents should move from gillette and put their kids in a real school. The only assets to that school are Mrs. Munro and Judy Hein. The new principal on a power trip The teachers are going to feel oppressed For lack of justification of these actions. I am a former student and i have seen the way these So call 'educators' act. i could have taught this to myself. Lets always remember that Foot Ball is not the most important ok.
