The Crescent Heights High School community is dedicated to the belief that all students, provided with a supportive inclusive environment, will strive for excellence and experience success both as learners and citizens. We acknowledge our students must be prepared for the world they live in today and the world they will encounter in their future. CHHS, as an effective school, grounds its work on the principles of rigor, relevance, and relationships.1
1. Rigor: all students need to be challenged academically.
2. Relevance: courses and tasks must relate to student interests and the real world.
3. Relationships: all students need adult advocates who will mentor, guide, and challenge them to reach their potential.
Students are encouraged to use the information contained on the CHHS Registration Web Page to assist them in making informed decisions about their high school education. Students should also consider, when making course selections, their intentions after high school is completed.
