    I have two grandsons that attend cheyenne and I am very pleased overall with the school. The Band is spectacular and always wins awards and competitions. I saw my grandsons grades improve. I like all the teachers. And I like the school overall. The lady TRACY that handles the front office is wonderful and the staff is helpful. I think they exceed my expectations.

    THis school is more concerned about it's test grades for funding than for the children's education. The staff doesn't know it's left from right and I've had nothing but problems since my child started school here 2 years ago. And to start the new year off right I got to work at 3 30pm on Aug 23 2013. My son received his schedule in the mail and read a flyer stating that open house was 3 hours away at 6pm. Here we go again. ..smh. I guess I should be grateful that at least this year that he got his schedule.

    The school has consistently been improving but the school spirit is still very low. Clubs and activities are suffering greatly. The new tardy policy is absolutely ridiculous hopefully with the change in administration next year things will get better.

    this school dress code is outragious and utterly stupid !! other than that the school is fine

    Cheyenne High School has reflected qualities that most schools offer at a slightly better level. The school's effort to create academic standard's and enforce behavior policies has lacked in many efforts last year. Although recently has raised the bar on academic qualification by raising up the rules repainted and refurbishing and cleaning up the problems. The school is not bad but not perfect.

    Cheyenne High School is top notch. Dr. Geihs the school principal is one of the best leaders I have ever encountered. I am proud that my children attend Cheyenne.

    Cheyenne has made many improvements and I see them continuing this effort to help our students excel

    I am currently a freshmen at Cheyenne and what I think is that at any school you go to it will have its problems. The main point i your experience in school is what you make it. It is up to you on how you want your outlook on high school to be. I mean sure the school is over crowded and could be better but in other words it is what you make it and your decision to apply yourself.

    I a a freshman at Cheyenne high and I would say overall the school is a good especially considering the kind of schools that are near by...I do think that Cheyenne could improve on tutoring opportunities.

    This school was a complete disappointment when it came to its care and treatment of students with learning disabilities. I understand that there's a lack of funding for various programs but when so many students should be receiving services and modified instruction their educational needs should receive funds before the extra curriculars. Why should cheerleaders and jocks receive new uniforms if the teachers special needs classes don't even have the necessary teaching materials? And don't get me started on the lack of books. I have been blessed with the opportunity to visit and experience school districts across the country and have been disgusted and dismayed at how far both Cheyenne and CCSD sit on the education scale. There is lack of parental involvement and the many of the school's policies are outrageous. Spend money on learning from districts that thrive then implement some of their practices. It would help tremendously.

    Dr. Geihs is a wonderful principal who holds his staff and the students accountable. I am so please my kids attend Cheyenne.

  • (8 years ago)

    The students body at Cheyenne is great. Ms. Lawson one of the assistant principals is such a nice lady too. Dr. Geihs is really nice but he enforces a lot of rules. I am told that this has made the school better so I guess it's okay. Cheyenne is a good school.

    First of all the school is over crowded and it doesnt have enough hands on material and teachers to teach our special disability students. I as a parent have use all my resource up burn out helping my own kids in this are my involvement and support is there.

    I have been so thrilled with the changes at Cheyenne High School since Dr. Geihs became the principal. The campus looks wonderful and the students seem more focused on academics. Keep up the good work!

    I am discusted by the Administrators and Teachers at Cheyenne. All I have received from anyone there is a lot of double talk and a hard time. My daughter plays volleyball and soccer for the school so far I have not dealt with one person willing or able to help my daughter with her curricular planning.

  • (10 years ago)

    The teachers and staff at Cheyenne High School have been wonderful since my daughter's enrollment there 2 years ago. The principal Dr. Geihs is outstanding and has conveyed his high expectations for students and for his staff. I am so happy with his leadership.

    I have 2 children that attend Cheyenne this year a Senior & a Freshman! I have been quite pleased w/ the staff and the administration. We lost a lot of GREAT coaches this year and I was very sad to see that but overall I think my Senior has had a great time and I think my Freshman will have a great deal of opportunities ahead for him. Mrs. Armstrong is THE BEST Teacher and Ms. Lee is THE BEST Counselor!The Security Guards are AWESOME the Parents MUST be involved that is the ONLY thing that keeps Good in and Bad out! Cheyenne has received a bad rap I think because people still think of North Las Vegas as an area to stay away from they are wrong our City is Raising it's standards and our community is coming together with those two combinations NOTHING but GREATNESS can be achieved!!!!
