“Spend less time caring about whether or not others like you, and spend more time figuring out if YOU like YOU!”

Who was your favorite teacher or administrator during your time at CHS? What subject did they teach? What made her or him special?

Hands down Mr. Dansereau! I was lucky enough to be his student for two years in a row, and he always pushed me to do my best no matter what. He cares about all of his students on an academic and personal level, and is always willing to help. Plus, he’s a great musician and in two bands so that just makes him 10x cooler.

What is something about CHS that people might not know, but should?

I feel like people don’t realize how many clubs/organizations CHS actually offers! There’s everything from Student Government, to Ping Pong Club, and even a Ukulele club! No matter what a student is interested in, there is bound to be a club that suits them and a place where they can make new friends and new memories.

 

What advice would you give to next year’s ninth grade students coming to CHS?

I would definitely say, spend less time caring about whether or not others like you, and spend more time figuring out if YOU like YOU! It’s so important to be you, because fitting in while compromising who you are will NOT make you happy. Find people that love you for you, and then high school will be everything you want it to be.

What makes CHS special? Why?

At CHS it’s actually cool to be smart and succeed. Your teachers and peers want you to do your best and get good grades. I think that’s pretty special.
