My children really like/liked cherokee high school. It’s the teachers there that make the difference. It’s diverse and more like the real world. It is next to a water treatment plant so it can get smelly there. To address the overcrowding they expanded the high school into an elementary building that was next door. So the kids do have to walk a good distance between buildings but it was a good, immediate solution to the overcrowding. There are nearly 900 Freshman this year so if it’s a small school your looking for, this isn’t it.
This school is the worst school I have ever seen or gone too. The amount of work does not let me spend time with my friends or family outside of school. The school is right by a waste plant which makes it smell worse than any other part of Canton, and everyone here is never open to newcomers. I have been disrespected more times than I can count by teachers and students for not being Christian, a teacher even went as far as telling me that Christianity was the right thing to believe and I was a bad person for not believing it. A teacher also threw things at students when mad, and threatened to slam a kids fingers in a door. The walkout honoring the 17 children that died in the Florida school shooting was not participated in by Cherokee high school, as the principle told us not to make it political. This action of theirs took away our right to express our opinions and beliefs, unless of they agreed with the administration here. It also disrespected and Dishonored the innocent children killed in that shooting too. The administration is heartless and they only accept ideas that agree with theirs. This school is impressively horrible, do NOT send your children here, as it has only caused me depression. It has wasted my childhood and has wasted what most call the best years of your life. Once again, do not send your children to this awful school.
This school has no respect for it's students and in return the students dont respect the teachers. The whole "Treat someone as you want to be treated" is something that is said, but not enforced.
Great atmosphere and teaching staff goes above and beyond.
