    Health & Safety: I feel very safe in my school. They have updated security systems and we usually have one police officer at the school during the day. I have never felt unsafe in my high school.

    Extracurriculars: While I have enjoyed my extracurriculars, there have been issues for funding for clubs since there is a tendency to give more money to sports like football instead of a club like Model UN which gets very little funding/ financial assistance.

    Overall Experience: My favorite experiences have been my parental support for any activities or events I have been in. If my parents aren't there, then often times I will hear other parents still cheering me on or encouraging me from the stands.

    Teachers: For the most part, CIHS has great teachers. Many who teach CIS courses go above and beyond getting to school early or staying late to help and assist struggling students or students who have questions or need assistance.
