    Academics: Scheduling is a nightmare. It was extremely hard to get the classes I wanted, not to mention there are limited courses available.

    Teachers: My experience at Cambridge-Isanti was horrible. If i had to do it all over I would never go back. The only thing redeemable about this school is the Model United Nations program.

    Health & Safety: CIHS has its own ways of making sure that everyone feels comfortable with being who they are and that they are in a safe environment. There is a no bullying policy, and although it does happen once in a while I see staff being quick to make sure it stops if seen or reported. CIHS has a police officer in the school at all times for protection. The staff in the health offices are very kind and friendly. The staff is also open minded to any issues and is willing to make sure a student, or staff member, is feeling great before they return to class. I believe that CIHS is a safe school. We have all of our doors locked during the school day, except for a visitor's door, which visitors must go through, give their ID, and get a school ID as a permission slip to be in the school.
