City High Parental Reviews!


June 24, 2018

My son is a Senior, class of 2018. I can’t even begin to put into words the vast difference my son’s high school experience was compared to his two older siblings that attended our neighborhood high school. He went to places he may never have seen like New York and Costa Rica. He was in the school musical. He got amazing experience interning at The Renaissance Hotel where he met some pretty incredible people. He was even invited to come back during the summer breaks from college. The Senior year experience sets them up for the “real-world”, no hand holding. 5 stars is actually an understatement to me. Great school!

My daughter is a senior, my son a freshman at City High. The curriculum is amazing. My daughter has accumulated the discipline, knowledge & skills needed for successful college & adult life. Throughout her 4 years there, she was guided through college/career options that best suited her. The teachers and staff care about your child as a whole. They take the time to learn your child’s personality, strengths, weaknesses, study habits, which learning style works best for them, what makes them happy. I can see already that this will make them better equipped to prepare for life after City High. Thank you, City High, for pouring yourself into my children, giving them a push when they need it and boosting their confidence. And thank you for working towards making them successful adults who know they matter and can make a difference!
