Principal's Corner

Salute to the class of 2020!  Your’s will be a fantastic year!  In addition to working through our new calendar and school start times, we have numerous new courses being offered and a brand new technology classroom located to the school’s immediate west.  Additionally, the high school welcomes 17 new staff members, all hired with a vision of experiential and student-centric learning.

Social-Emotional Wellbeing dominates our school culture this year with several assemblies scheduled to help students overcome the trials of being a teenager in an ever-increasing society of stress.  We will also put our 60 Link Crew Leaders through a full semester of classroom training to take full care of the freshman transition. If you are the parent of a freshman, ask you student about Tiger Pride Link Crew.

In a world where the only constant is change, and knowing that our students will face change at an even more rapid pace, CCHS is dedicated to preparing EVERY student for a successful career.  The class of 2021 will begin working on their Capstone projects (100% required for all students from this class forward). Our Professional and Internship program will see more than 200 students accomplish work-place internships for credit.  Our TOP program will continue to provide a safe and engaging space for those students who need a non-traditional environment. Our Pathways in Technology Early College High School (PTECH) program will offer college courses and internships in several career fields.  Finally, our Portrait of a Graduate effort will ensure that students learn the personal traits and skills to be successful.
