City High parents appreciated our thoughtful approach to distance learning and student engagement during the past year.

★★★★★

“We chose City High for our kids and have never had a moment of regret. The bonds they formed while there, especially with staff, have continued even after their time at City High is through. They’ve received an excellent education and real-world experience that has prepared them for life after high school. City High took the lead during the pandemic, going above and beyond to keep our kids safe and to keep us informed, as compared to many other school districts in the region."

★★★★★

“I have found City Charter High to be safe, organized, and academically challenging. One of the most important things an employer looks for in the hiring process is adaptability to change. City High faculty and students never missed a beat when faced with adapting to new learning models during the pandemic.”

★★★★★

“I feel that City High has not skipped a beat with the changes that needed to be made during the pandemic, the positive aspect of being a laptop-based school. Everything from March 2020 until now has been on point and I feel like that they always kept the students, parents, and teachers in mind when making the decisions that they have made during the pandemic.”

★★★★★

“I could not be happier with my decision to send my son to City High. My son has some unique behaviors and they were extremely accommodating to his needs. He was never made to feel as an outcast and there was always someone available to listen when he needed it. The assistance they provided to the students in regards to what happens after high school was fantastic.”

★★★★★

“We were very impressed with City Charter High School's overall organization, communication, and commitment to academic excellence. The school also has a strong anti-bullying policy that was also important to our family. The staff goes above and beyond each and every day to prepare the students for life after high school.”
