    My son really loves this school. The staff members are very respondent to the student's needs

    Not only am I a CHS student but through my involvement in many extracurricular activities I am also a leader in my school. The students tend to know more about what is going on than the faculty and the administration rarely has a clue. If parents want to know what is going on and they can't get it out of their student then they will have to do some major digging to get knowledgable answers out of administration.
