Some reviews from parents of CHS student include:
“My daughter is a junior at Chattahoochee and has attended this school since her freshman year. Chattahoochee is an excellent school with very diverse students. She has attended several AP courses that will help her transition into college smoothly. I am extremely happy with my choice to enroll her in Chattahoochee High School.”
“Experienced, outstanding teachers combined with students who have a culture of pursuing excellence across a wide spectrum of academic, co-curricular, and extracurricular activities and are also actually kind to each other make Charrahoochee a great place to go to high school.”
“I am a parent of a sophomore at CHS. I have found the school’s greatest strength to be its teachers, who are a very dedicated group who are excited about their school and very interested in their students. There’s a broad array of AP and Honors courses as well as sports, and I think a well-organized student can do both (my child will take 4 AP classes as a junior and play 1 sport). The sports obsession mentioned in other reviews is there, but I see it at the other area schools as well. New band wing is under construction now, new classroom wing built last year.”
