At CH-CH, we know that everyone—student, family, and school—needs to be a partner in a student’s success. The partnership begins with intimate classes taught by a highly trained and dedicated faculty, creating an atmosphere where every student in well known. Then, weekly progress notes and twice yearly conferences bring parents into the loop and keeps surprises to a minimum. Everyone is linked together by myCH-CH, our online system where all of a student’s assignments, both short and long-term, are housed and can be accessed by students, parents, and teachers alike from any internet capable device.


We believe that the most important element in any partnership is good communication. This is why every student is assigned an advisor who meets with him or her weekly to discuss academic progress and other topics. Each teacher also writes weekly progress notes for each of their students which form the basis for conversations with parents, advisors, and teachers. To top it off, we have a highly dedicated and responsible faculty who return messages within a day…and most times much sooner than that.


myCH-CH, the school’s online information system, is a warehouse of information for students, parents, advisors, and teachers.  All of a student’s assignments are kept there, with weekly updates to make sure that students have the latest information about what is expected of them.  

myCH-CH is also the home of the weekly progress notes and trimester report cards, as well as attendance records and all other school information, such as special schedules, celebrations, athletic schedules and activities.  It is one stop shopping for all of your child’s school information.

Many schools rightly claim to have small classes, but at CH-CH classes are truly intimate.  With an average of ten students per class, our average teacher works with a total of 40 students in any given year.  This allows our faculty to know each student very well and to help each one craft approaches to learning that will make them successful in our classrooms and beyond.  We find that students embrace these close relationships and benefit immensely from them both academically and otherwise.

“Because the teachers here not only teach but they also coach or are involved in so many other things, it’s my sense that they get to know the whole child…not just the child sitting across from them in the classroom. That’s very important to me.”
