  • Rating: 1 (1 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • The teachers are paid low wages because of their performance levels. My son hasn't had the "teacher time" to be taught how he should be taught and it is clear on his report card that CHS isn't in the top 10 best list at all! But they are on the top 10 worst list!
