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.
The small, personal atmosphere of Croton-Harmon High School provides a learning environment in which there is continuous attention given to individual student needs. The faculty develops curriculum and approaches instruction to ensure that every graduate is an effective communicator, researcher and problem-solver.
As a long-time affiliate of the Coalition of Essential Schools, an association that strives to enhance the educational experiences of students, CHHS is dedicated to the belief that all students can learn, and that their minds are best stimulated when they become active learners.
Croton-Harmon students learn about science through experimentation. Students at CHHS have access to a wide variety of courses, including twelve Advanced Placement classes in biology, chemistry, physics, American history, English literature, macroeconomics, calculus, statistics, studio art, Spanish, French, and environmental science. Foreign language options include a fifth year in Spanish and French and foreign exchange programs in which students live with families in Spain or France, and host students from those same communities when they visit Croton on alternate years. Those interested in vocational training spend a part of their school day at BOCES Tech Center in Yorktown.
CHHS is also a pilot school in the School-to-Careers project, and is developing curriculum and career folders. The school sponsors career conversations for juniors and seniors each year to help students make better career choices.
The dedicated faculty works closely with students in many areas. The Student-Faculty Congress consists of 28 students and 10 faculty members, and discusses real issues that affect the school and seeks solutions to school wide topics such as academic eligibility and school culture.
In addition to academic endeavors, the high school offers a variety of other activities to its students are large interscholastic athletic program, National Honor Society, theater productions, the school newspaper, the yearbook a Federal Reserve Challenge Team, an alliance for equality, and a human rights task force. CHHS’ graduates are successful, with 95 percent going on to post-secondary education, many to prestigious colleges and universities.
