" ... many opportunities for students"

Kyron Hoimyr - Alumnus   (Jan 23, 2018)
I loved my time at Caronport High School. I came into the school at the start of grade nine and I really wanted to hate it. Going to this school was not part of my plan, I had intended on hating the school, then after my grade 9 year go to the school I had wanted to attend in the first place. Then I graduated in 2012. Safe to say things did not go the way i had planned/ My time here was unreal. Basketball tournaments, football games, Sadie Hawkins Skate are some of my best memories from this pla...

An atmosphere of caring

LOREE BUCK - Parent   (Jan 30, 2018)
The atmosphere at CHS is one of caring for the whole person of the student. The teachers are not just ramming the curriculum through, but really wanting the students to enjoy the learning process and feel cared for as individuals. Sometimes, the caring seemed to feel smothering, depending on which of our four kids you would talk to. The girls soaked up the personal interaction that was available with their teachers. Our son is less inclined to get personal. One of our daughters was injured in ...

" ... Mr. Bell and his history classes really brought history to life"

Chiante Guretzki - Alumnus   (Jan 23, 2018)
My experience at CHS was absolutely wonderful. Everything from the quality of the education to the passion of the teachers to the intensity of the spiritual formation helped to make my high school years some of the best of my life. Looking back, Caronport High School would be nothing if not for the teachers and staff. Each teacher genuinely wants to teach and wants to help their students succeed. They act as teachers but also as mentors and coaches, prayer warriors and friends. That deep lev...

"develops strong sense of community"

Britten Banerjee - Alumnus   (Jan 24, 2018)
A very strong school academically and develops strong sense of community. Often promoting community events and challenging their students. Felt the school prepared me well in terms of ability to engage with university level education but not in terms of life skills.

A positive environment

Maria Tunall - Student   (Feb 13, 2018)
i would absolutely love a student lounge, the study center isn’t great if you just want to hang out. the girls washroom could also be bigger,

"a great experience"

Liam Tieszen - Alumnus   (Feb 23, 2018)
Caronport Highschool was a great experience for me. I was homeschooled from K-10 and going to CHS was a good transition. It offered good education from caring teachers, and offered a lot of extra curricular activities. My favorite memory at CHS was being on the worship team for my grade 11 year. I made great friends that were amazing musicians. Even though its a Christian highscool, I feel it didn't prepare me for the questions others would ask. My spiritual life wasn't excelled but was rather d...

Good role models

Emily Alexander - Student   (Jan 24, 2018)
at CHS its a really wonderful atmosphere. the teachers are kind and care about your well being and education. they are willing to help you if you have troubles. the christian environment helps alot too. having a background of Christ in the community really helps you to feel included when you get there. if i could change something about the school it would be the strict dining schedule. they feed you well in the cafeteria but sometimes the high school kids get whats left from when the college kid...

Christian ethics

Barbara Potts - Alumnus   (Feb 13, 2018)
The time spent with God is amazing. Through chapels, Christian Ethics, and other events like these students really get to dig into the word od God. They decipher what's truth and what's not. And life long friends are made here which is a huge bonus. Nothing really prepares you for what life can throw your way but if you lean on God like taught at CHS then you're golden.

Diverse academic programs, compassionate leadership

Cheryl Hepworth - Parent   (Feb 23, 2018)
My Daughter really appreciates the teachers and staff. She finds them kind and willing to help. She is enjoying the classes she is taking and finds them adequate in challenging her capabilities. One thing she finds disappointing is that she lives in town and would take her lunch to school but she is not allowed to bring outside food into the cafeteria. She is finding it hard to get to know the people who stay in the dorm and finds that it segregates the dorm kids from the town kids. She f...

Caronport High School, totally changed my life for the better, I love it here.

There’s definitely a tough workload but the teachers are always there to help, They actually want to see you succeed. that was one of the things that I found most refreshing here. One of the things that helped my choose Caronport High School is that it’s a Christian school, I love how no ...

" ... a very safe and healthy environment."

Jaidyn Katzell - Student   (Jan 23, 2018)
Caronport High School is a very safe and healthy environment. I love the energy of students and the support of staff. I wish I would know more about dorming life. When I took a tour, the tour guide didn’t know much about the rules of dorm or how the system really worked. I wish I could have known what the environment of dorming was like before I moved in. If I could change one thing about my school, it would be to not take 10% off of late assignments each day that it’s late. Sometimes life g...

Classes challenging, teachers exceptional

Latricia Johnson - Parent   (Feb 05, 2018)
Our son has truly enjoyed his senior year at Caronport High School! The classes are challenging. The teachers are exceptional! He has had the opportunity to take a college class as well. Our son played on the football team and is on the intramural hockey team. He also lives in the dorms. This has helped him to make new friends and engage in activities that he enjoys. Caronport High School offers many opportunities for students during the after-school hours such as attending athletic event...

Great school spirit

Andrea Walker - Parent   (Apr 05, 2018)
He has enjoyed many classes while attending CHS. The teacher and staff support has been helpful and beneficial in speaking into his life. What he has enjoyed most is the school activities such as ski trips, being on the football team and going on an educational trip to Italy and Greece. He has found the social aspect of high school and sometimes how it is handled disappointing. Although he has mainly been heard, his sense of belonging was not filled. He has greatly appreciated his teachers' s...

"The coaches at CHS deserve gold medals."

Vangie Brown - Parent   (Jan 23, 2018)
We are very grateful that our children get to go to CHS!! My husband and I are very happy with the school, even though things have not always been easy for our high school children, we are convinced that this has been the very best place for them to struggle and learn and grow. I have two children in high school. My daughter appreciates the teachers the most. She could not think of anything that is disappointing to her. My son appreciates the academic challenge and willingness of teachers ...

"structure ... but still a lot of freedom"

Eden Brown - Student   (Jan 23, 2018)
At Caronport High School the students are friendly. The teachers are always willing to help with any questions. The teachers like to get to know you on a personal level, and they take time to ask how you are doing. There are quiet and comfy places to study. There is enough structure to keep things in order, but there is still a lot of freedom with assignments, and how class time is used. Also if your in grade 12 you can take a college course. Our school has a lot of sports to offer, even a hocke...

Encouraging peers and teachers

Maia Fawcett - Student   (Jan 31, 2018)
I really like caronport high school. I have many encouraging peers like my friends and also my teachers. One thing that I wish could be changed is the how many cliques and groups around that have inside jokes and such. It's not very fun being outside of them and I would have noticed throughout our school quite a bit. I wish I knew how trusting the teachers are when I arrived. Because they were so nice but I was too scared to talk to them much because of random reasons. One thing I would like to ...

"staff do really well at being a positive and encouraging presence"

Jenaya Langman - Student   (Jan 23, 2018)
Caronport Christian High School is a great school where growing in your faith and relationship with God and friendships are important. This shows in the way the school is ran as well as through the ways the staff treat and interact with students so positively. One thing I would have liked to know before was the emphasis on sports and how not being involved in sports or living in town will change how quickly you make stronger friendships. I am not saying this would have been a make or break poin...

Strong leadership, quality instruction

Debbie Jensen - Parent   (Jan 20, 2018)
They thought the teachers were very invested in seeing them succeed both in & out of the classroom. They loved the athletic & musical opportunities & the interactions with college students who shared the same campus.

"I have grown to know the school as a home"

Taylor Doerksen - Student   (Feb 13, 2018)
I wish I knew that I could take classes of the grade level above because then I wouldn’t have to tal so many classes in grade twelve. It’s really nice that we can chang our classes easily and they mark everybody fairly. I wish there was more space for fitness as the Center in the rink is pretty small but still pretty nice. I wish the cafeteria served healthier food for athletes and people in general instead of so many carbs. Is super hard to eat healthy there because he food is all carbs a...
