What makes CHS Special

CHS is special for so many reasons because of its amazing staff. The teachers here really care about the students and it completely changes the learning environment when you know you have at least one teacher who you can always go to for help. Our staff makes school fun and progressive, making sure that with each school year, we are more accepting of others than we were the last.

NATAS Student Emmy Nominee

Boys Tennis Varsity Third Singles

Highlights of CHS Experience

My favorite memory is being part of the 2016 Boys Tennis Team as we went to Semi-Finals in the state playoffs for the first time in a long time. Everyone was great to be with, not just competitively as teammates but just as friends. The next biggest thing is when I was nominated for a student Emmy out of hundreds of other New Jersey and Pennsylvania participants. The one thing I won’t forget at CHS was Mr. Eboch’s retirement my junior year. We were all saddened to see him finally retire but I was happy for him because being with him for the last 7 years I saw how much everyday was taking his toll on him. I’m so happy to see him enjoy the rest of his life but I’m so sad that he, who has been such a huge cornerstone of Collingswood, is gone.

What makes CHS Special

What truly makes CHS special is just the quality of people who work and learn here. Some of my teachers were just great friends and helped me learn what I never would have understood by myself, and some others were just such “parents” that gave me so much advice on my problems both professionally and personally and a few have even became practically family. The students here are all such diverse but accepting people and that allows CHS to be a true cultural melting pot that I am proud to have been part of.

I have made relationships with teachers and friends that will impact my life forever. I’m so grateful to have been able to be a part of so many extraordinary things thanks to CHS.

Although I love it here I’m especially excited to graduate!!!

What makes CHS Special

What makes CHS so special is the teachers and staff. We have some pretty exceptional teachers that go above and beyond their duty of teaching. They are not only great teachers but great people who I will always appreciate for making my high school experience better. The acceptance they have with the LGBTQ+ community is amazing and their overall treatment towards us as students has really made high school special for me and for all of us.

I accomplished breaking notorious school records of playoffs droughts. For example, ending a 21 year old drought of not winning just 1 playoff game. Same with soccer which was a 28 year old drought. I also accomplished being a 3 sport student athlete all 4 years of high school while being in many clubs such as Interact club and Student Council. But most of all, I accomplished finishing high school.

Highlights of CHS Experience

Some highlights are winning playoff games, going to sporting events as a Colls Crazies, and making new friends.

What makes CHS Special

I think the diversity of the school is so special, due to the fact no matter who or what you are everyone is excepted I feel like and everyone is kind towards each other. It’s like one big family.

Highlights of CHS Experience

Some of most memorable moments of my time at Collingswood High School include playing football with my childhood friends, attending the senior promenade, and helping to create a mural my junior year with Mrs. Lange. I also enjoyed taking the design tech course and trying out track this year.

What makes CHS Special

Many people don’t know that I grew up in Collingwood for 11 years, then suddenly moved to Georgia after the 5th grade. Starting off in a new school where I didn’t know anyone was tough, and I never once thought that I would move back to my hometown. Lucky the opportunity to move back appeared the summer of my sophomore year, and I was able to finish my high school career at Collingswood. What makes Collingswood high school special is the family. Everyone was so welcoming, it was like I never left! The football team felt more like a brotherhood than my previous team in Georgia. It was awesome to reunite with my childhood friends, and make new friends through the swim team and track. Lastly, the staff at Collingswood high school is one a kind, and they’ve taught me so much these last two years.

Highlights of CHS Experience

Everyone here at CHS made my experience unforgettable and it is something that I will cherish forever. The highlights that made my years so special were, Choir Concerts, winning powder puff two years in a row, Prom at the aquarium and of course Senior Trip.

What makes CHS Special

What makes CHS so special is the incredible staff who works so hard every day and is so selfless. Without them we wouldn’t be who we are, they shaped us into who we are today and I can’t thank them enough for all of their help and support. I will miss them all so much.
