High school is an important time for a child to grow intellectually and personally. It also prepares them for college or a job during this critical transition period into adulthood. At CPS we strive to help students achieve their full potential and become productive members within their community. We strive for academic excellence while making school a fun environment to learn in. Every high school works to understand each child and create an environment where they will “flourish."
