    "My daughter graduated from CHS and did well, but if you're looking for scholarship assistance, they are of no help. She was in mostly honors classes - her honors biology class had only 3 students in it! I withdrew my son from CHS because of safety and academic issues - it is a very tough school with a large portion of the male students involved in gangs. Academically, if your student is not an honors student or an 'at risk' student, they will just coast thru or slip thru the cracks. Administration is far more interested in keeping attendance up and AIMS scores than on curriculum. My daughter received enormous pressure to keep retaking the AIMS even though she had already passed it - administration was trying to raise the score averages. Be very diligent and involved and talk to your student daily about their impression of the CHS environment."

    "As a former student at CBHS I beleive it is a great school. I am very familiar with the staff and office personnel, and I have always been treated fairly and with respect. I would recommend this school to those who are not sure whether to attend or not. The school has many different programs, clubs that a student would find useful for the 'real world' after high school. I love you Camelback'"

    "I had throughout HighSchool a C+ or maybe B average. In retrospect, the only way an average guy like me could have been successful at CBHS was to beacause I was active in clubs. My choice was Camelback Now, the media club that would actively attend events and tape/edit/distribute/sell/show them as well as put on a weekly television show (not just announcements, but an actual news show with segments and interviews). Through that I got to see how awesome some of the other clubs were, like the Step Team, Track and Field, anything having to do with the Band, and the Drama Club. I was also part of STRUT (Students Recycling Used Technology, sponsored by Motorola and Intel) and through that program got a THREE-YEAR-SCHOLARSHIP to GateWay Community College which I used to get my Associates in Applied Science. TAKE NOTE: My parents had to be _forcefully_active_ in my education!"

    "My daughter attended CHS and although it is a very good school and has lots of great programs and extra curricular activities. The administrative personnel leaves a lot to be desired. As a parent I feel that I was never given the respect that I deserve. As for the teachers, they hardly ever had time to properly introduce themselves. This overall, made me as a parent, not want to be involved as I should have wanted to be. My frustration was such, that I removed my child from CHS."
