Commitment to this kind of excellence takes a lot of hard work—on the part of students, parents, faculty, and administrators. However, the hard work produces success and rewards. The administration and faculty at CHS believe that students will rise to the standards set for them. Every student is challenged to set and reach goals each year. Students are expected to be committed to the rigorous curriculum of the Liberal Arts College Preparatory Magnet.
However, we realize that education is more than just academics. CHS students are known for being different—in a good way. They are praised by tour guides on field trips and by visitors to the school. This extraordinary student develops because parents are involved, students are self-motivated, and educators take the time to give instruction in appropriate behavior, active community involvement, and global awareness.
