Welcome to Caldwell County High School. I hope that you are relaxed, recharged and ready to start a new school year.

I'm thrilled we will have 600+ students as a part of our learning community.

The entire staff is excited about the upcoming year and, on their behalf, I am pleased to welcome our students to the 2019-2020 school year at CCHS.

One of our goals at CCHS is to empower students to be college, career or military ready and send our graduates into the world with the skills they need to be successful. We are proud of our past accomplishments and look for this school year to be no different in helping all of our students to achieve their personal best.

In addition to academics, we offer a variety of groups, clubs, teams and organizations which have won local, regional, state and national competitions. We encourage our students to find a place to get involved. The old adage "success breeds success" is evident throughout the halls of CCHS and will continue as we approach another school year.

Our focus will always be on the students and ways that we can improve each and every child every day. At CCHS, we are always trying to find new ways to improve and grow as a school to make it a better place. We have worked with colleges and universities across the state to provide a variety of dual credit offerings. For those who qualify, this offers a huge savings to those wishing to get a jump on college classes. Also, Caldwell County is designated a "Work Ready Community." CCHS will be partnering with the community to help our high school students achieve success in their future careers.

Each new year brings positive change. This includes a few additions to our staff. We are pleased to have Tanner Reed, our new freshmen English teacher, joining us. Tanner will also be the boys soccer coach. Although not new to the district, we welcome Chad Lane who will be working in the Dual Credit/Credit Recovery Lab. Joining us in the Life Skills classroom is Jordan Mitchell. Charles Mitchell comes aboard as the Lady Tiger basketball coach. Last but not least, Anthony Counts joins our daytime custodial staff.

CCHS appreciates the continued support provided by our parents, community members and local businesses. Thank you for helping us develop students who are prepared to enter the workforce as productive and responsible citizens. They deserve no less!

I hope everyone enjoys their final days of summer break before we kick off the 2019-2020 school year.

Go Tigers!
