School Mission Statement
  • Office Hours

    One of the unique features we offer at CHS is the availability of our teachers during office hours. Teachers are open to their students from 7:45am to 8:25am on Thursdays as a way to get additional assistance. Students can get help from teachers regarding a concept they don't understand, clarity around a project, make-up a test, or complete homework. If they are all caught up in classes or do not have a need to meet with a teacher they can take advantage of the opportunity to get extra sleep.
    Students can also access the library during this time.  However, regardless of why a student is here once they are on campus during office hours, we do not let them off.
    Students who receive a D or F in one or more class on the upcoming quarter grading period will be assigned to a mandatory office hour session. They will be notified by their counselor when they are assigned. This is essential for those who are in danger of failing a class to get the support they need. 
    If you have any questions or want more information you can email your child's counselor or either of the Assistant Principals.

  • Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Workshops


    CHS is hosting two workshops to assist parents and students with the Free Application for Financial Aid. 


    To apply for federal student aid, such as federal grants, work-study, and loans, students need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). In addition, many states and colleges use your FAFSA information to determine your eligibility for state and school aid, and some private financial aid providers may use your FAFSA information to determine whether you qualify for their aid. Completing and submitting the FAFSA is free and easier than ever, and it provides access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for college or career school.


    Students in the Class of 2020 and their parents/guardians are encouraged to attend our two Cash for College FAFSA Workshops. On September 10, Financial Planner Steve Shapiro will be available at 6pm in the Library to aid in some of the basics of financial planning for college. On Tues. Oct. 8th from 6:00 - 8:00 pm in the CHS Library, we will have financial aid outreach specialists from Monterey Peninsula College on hand to help you file the FAFSA that evening. Don't forget to bring your Chromebook and your FSA ID.
