CIHS holds a special place in my heart. I had a pretty good high school experience, save for some stressing coursework, shifting friend groups, feeling like I didn't belong, and low morale, in general. On the positive side of things, I learned SO much from a lot of my classes (Mike Sorn is an amazing math teacher who helped me conquer my math fears), eventually found my niche in school (in my senior year...better late than never), met a lot of good-hearted people (a few whom I know will be life-long friends), and had a great time being involved in school sports and musical ensembles. CIHS has an interesting dynamic, and it can get depressing and/or discouraging if you fall into not being true to yourself. I was discouraged by the lack of diversity and open-mindedness. However, the lack of these elements of CIHS also inspired me and many, many others to really be ourselves and push forward through those small-town views. CIHS offers SO many great opportunities for academic success, especially if you seek out those opportunities. College preparation (especially counselor help with applications) was of high-quality, in particular. CIHS is a great school, despite the shortcomings I perceive that it holds. CIHS really helped me to become an individual, to not worry so much, work hard, have fun, and ultimately help me to start the next phase of my life adventure! So, thank you CIHS. I would choose you if I could do it all over again.
