We've had several of our children enjoy a happy and challenging educational experience at this beautiful facility. The teachers, staff, and administration have always provided the tools and encouragement necessary for our kids to succeed. We have always been truly grateful for the high caliber of education, the rewarding extra curricular activities, and the beautiful facility at CHHS.

Brian Donahue and his caring, talented staff have made this lovely facility a standard of excellence without peer on the lower eastern shore. Their hard work, "students first" attitude, and compassion make it a comfortable environment for all students motivated to learn from the capable and well credentialed staff. Bravo and thank you!

Most of the reviews here are years old! This is a great school with wonderful teachers, latest technology, a mix of socioeconomic students with most of them with "their head in the game". It is a safe wonderful environment with so many class and career choices. It has top rated sports teams, music groups, theatre, foreign languages, animal husbandry, green houses in additiona to the regular normal classes. A school you can be proud to say belongs to our community! Come check out all the schools! You will be delighted

Great new building with adequate teachers. Would like to see a dress code in affect, so that students can focus more on acedemics rather than who's wearing what! Cape Henlopen Sussex Consortium has an excellent Autism Program with an amazing group of teachers & paraprofessionals!

Cape gets a bit of a bad rep in the media. However, in my four years at CHHS, I found it to be a place of dedicated teachers and functional administration. Of course, like every school, there is room for improvement, but Cape is not a school to scoff at.

Despite the previous negative reviews, this school is excellent and has a good educational environment. Those who feel negatively about the institution have no legitimate reason to feel this way. There is a large choice of classes and the school has an exceptional Honors/Advanced Placement (AP) program.

It's just heartbreaking..not even worth reviewing. The School has lost it's entire upper tier of students to charter schools. Everyone escapes if they can. Some excellent students remain because there is no alternative for everyone. It's hard to be negative but if you pay attention to statistics and student/parent feedback there just isn't much to get excited about. The new high school might bring some incentive to improve things. But it's the same old people making the decisions.

This school to horrible for slpecial education. They pick favorites and treat children through negative reenforcement instead of positive reenforcement. Safety is a huge issue also as they mix the age groups and place younger children around more experienced aged children. Children are not taken individually which is needed to perform a position that works with children with special needs. If they do not have the correct placement, your child is place in the incorrect placement and struggles through out the year without notice to parents.

This school is great for any student, from highly gifted to needing special education. The school does its best to maintain high grade standards for all students. The school provides a wide range of classes for students pursuing different interests. For the junior and senoir students, the school does very well for preparing students for college. They offer AP classes in all core subjects, counselers who offer all the help that students need, and offer many local scholarships. the music and sport programs are exceptional. The music (band and choir) program continues to be rated supirior at all competitions they go to. The sports also win many district and state titles every year. Lastly, the school has an excellent JROTC program for any student wanting to join the military.
