“Learning is such a beautiful concept, so do not allow the stress or difficulty of schoolwork turn the act of learning into something that is not enjoyable.”

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

Mr. Dansereau was my favorite teacher. I had him for calculus and his genuine passion for both his job and math made the class, and senior year as a whole, more enjoyable.

 

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

People should know that there are opportunities for all types of students. Although CHS has a diverse community, there is a place for everyone, whether it be a group, club, or sports team.

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

School is easier and more enjoyable when you have a positive attitude. Learning is such a beautiful concept, so do not allow the stress or difficulty of schoolwork turn the act of learning into something that is not enjoyable.

What makes CHS special? Why?

The teachers at CHS care for their students as individuals. They help highlight students’ strengths and work to overcome their weaknesses. The teachers genuinely want to see their students succeed. Passionate teachers create passionate students.
