“…it is 100% more beneficial to open yourself up and make new friends. In every class there are going to be new students and by keeping your options open, you never know who you might meet.”
Who was your favorite teacher or administrator during your time at CHS? What subject did they teach? What made her or him special?
Mrs. Jahnz was my Math Team Coach and AP Calculus teacher this year. Starting in January, I stayed after school in her room for National Honor Society Tutoring every day and we have built a special relationship. Whether it is welcoming students to her house to study for the AP exam or offering to meet at other places around town, I know that she truly cares about the students. I am going to miss staying after to relax and talk with her and cannot wait to come back and visit next year.
What is something about CHS that people might not know, but should?
One of my favorite things about CHS is the lack of boundaries between the different social groups. Athletes are friends with Math Teamers who are friends with game club members who are friends with people in the art department. There is a very open atmosphere and you can tell that the students want to be in school.
What advice would you give to next year’s ninth grade students coming to CHS?
When coming into high school, it is important to remember that there are hundreds of new classmates for you to meet. While it may seem easier to keep your middle school friends, it is 100% more beneficial to open yourself up and make new friends. In every class there are going to be new students and by keeping your options open, you never know who you might meet.
What makes CHS special? Why?
All of the teachers and administrators truly care about the students and work hard to provide us with the best experience and education possible. With the work that Principal Tenreiro has put in to improve our school, the positive mindset that all of the students have is unlike any other school.
