High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
CHS, Charlottesville High School is the only public high school in the independent city of Charlottesville, Virginia, serving students from 9th to 12th grade. It is the second largest high school in the region with a student population of 1350. The grounds include a memorial garden, a running track, ball fields, landscaped courtyards and the Martin Luther King Jr. Performing Arts Center.
CHS was built in 1974 following the segregation of the former Lane High School. Lane was too small to accommodate both white and black students. Inherited from Lane were the school colors and the black knight mascot. Lane High School is now the Albemarle County office building. Charlottesville High School's sports complex was still located on the grounds of the Lane High School building until the 1980s, when it was moved to a site across the street. During the last 20 years of the 20th century, CHS has had some major additions including a new gym facility and a large auditorium.
Kenneth Leatherwood is principal of the school, students select their programs for academic courses, which are differentiated by level. The mathematics, science, social science, and English departments offer applied general, advanced, honors, and AD, advanced placement courses. The foreign language program includes French, German, Latin and Spanish from the general to the Advanced Placement level. In addition, students may elect to participate in one or more of the fine arts programs including vocal and instrumental music, visual arts, theatre arts and creative writing courses.
Their departments includes athletics, benefits, budget and finance budget, career and technical education, career assessment and planning, curriculum and instruction curriculum, fine and performing arts, human resources, instructional technology, libraries and instructional media services, nutrition services, special education and student services, technical support. 
At Charlottesville High School, their mission is to offer a learning environment where students are challenged to reach their individual potential in the achievement of knowledge and the development of personal, cultural and democratic values essential for future success.
