Academics

 “We chose City High for our kids and have never had a moment of regret. The bonds they formed while there, especially with staff, have continued even after their time at City High is through. They’ve received an excellent education and real-world experience that has prepared them for life after high school. City High took the lead during the pandemic, going above and beyond to keep our kids safe and to keep us informed, as compared to many other school districts in the region." --City High parent of 2020-2021

Here’s Why More and More Parents Are Choosing City High

Each student is challenged to explore who they are – what they’re good at – and what they would like to do when school is over. 

  • In addition to traditional areas of learning (like Math, Science, English & History), students are exposed to life skills like Financial Literacy, independent study and teamwork and learn soft skills like discipline, patience, concentration, and collaboration to take with them no matter what they do in life. 
  • Each student has the opportunity to learn both in the classroom and outside of the classroom – in a real world internship experience, guided by a professional mentor.
