Welcome to Cherokee High School! We are excited that you will be part of the wonderful, rich history that is Cherokee High School. Our school has a 57 year legacy filled with academic, athletic and social successes and the imprint of thousands of Warrior Alum. I began my own Warrior story in 1984 when entering CHS as a nervous freshman! It is great to be a Warrior!
At Cherokee HS, we BELIEVE in the STRENGTH of our WARRIOR FAMILY. You will hear often how important the Five R’s are at CHS. The Five R’s include Relationships, Respect, Responsibility, Rigor, and Relevance that serve as guiding principles for our staff and students.
In the world of Academics, we are excited to usher in new Advanced Placement courses including the return of Latin and AP Physics B. In addition, we will complete the Healthcare Science program this year with our first CNA candidates and will move to year two of Engineering. We are thrilled to have the Microsoft IT academy coming to CHS as well! We hope you will encourage your Sophomore and Junior to register for the Princeton Review ACT/SAT prep sessions this year!
During the 2013-14 school year, you will witness a complete wonderful overhaul to our athletic facilities. We are thrilled to have a new softball field, improvements to baseball and track, a concession stand and restroom facility, new Tommy Baker Field, a new field house and a field house for soccer/lacrosse on the horizon. It will be “The Year of the Hardhat”, but we are ready for all the new additions to our campus! Don’t forget to come to a football game to check out the team, cheer squad and band on our new Jumbotron!
We will continue to have a school focus on leadership and service with our Leadership 56 group, Teach One to Lead One, Reinhardt University Mentors, Peer Leadership course, Sophomore Leadership Homeroom, and Peer Facilitator PE. We strongly encourage the Warriors to get involved with Clubs and Leadership opportunities!
At Cherokee High School, we believe being a Warrior means something very special. Once you are a Warrior, you are always. Welcome to the Warrior Family!
