Welcome to Cullman High School
On behalf of Cullman High School, I welcome you to the CHS Homepage. We believe that it is important to communicate and live by our mission statement - Inspiring Students for Lifelong Success! It is my pleasure to share with you a brief summary of the many exciting accomplishments of our school community.
Cullman High School has a strong tradition of academic and extracurricular success. CHS students have a demonstrated history of intellectual achievement, exemplified as the class of 2014 earned more than four million dollars in offers of scholarship support for post-secondary education. For the second consecutive year Newsweek identified Cullman High School for inclusion in their “America’s Best High Schools” listing. In the selection process, Newsweek considered graduation rates, scores on college entrance exams, participation and scores in college-level classes via Advanced Placement (AP) programs, and acceptance into a two- or four-year college program. In addition, Cullman High School consistently ranks among the top ten percent of all Alabama High Schools on state accountability assessments.
All students have access to a comprehensive counseling program with annual advising for every student at the point of registration and an ongoing emphasis on long-term preparation for college and careers. Our students’ ACT scores exceed the national norm with CHS students averaging a 22.7 in contrast with the national average of 21.0. The range of course offerings includes a number of fine arts, career tech, and elective courses, reflecting student interests and ambitions. Cullman High School faculty regularly uses digital tools and projection technologies in each classroom to increase student engagement. As a result of the A+ College Ready program, an increasing number of Cullman High School students are registering for Advanced Placement coursework and passing AP exams to earn college credit or placement. The percent of graduating students that have passed an AP exam has increased from 5.4% in 2010 to 25.1% in 2014.
