CHS Earns College Success Gold Award
Chardon High School earns GreatSchools College Success Award - Gold

Nov. 16, 2021 — Chardon High School is a proud recipient of the GreatSchools College Success Award — Gold for having a multi-year track record of preparing students to enroll and succeed in college. The school was pleased to receive notification of this 2021 recognition earlier this fall. 
CHS, which was the recipient of the GreatSchools College Success Award in 2019 and 2020, is among 1,770 high schools in 26 states and among 175 schools in the state of Ohio to receive the gold level distinction in 2021. GreatSchools debuted the inaugural gold tier this year.

Now in its fourth year, the GreatSchools College Success Award program evaluates public schools based on data that show how well the schools prepare students to succeed after graduation, including whether they enroll in college, are ready for college-level coursework, and persist into their second year of college. 
Speaking on behalf of the school’s administrators, CHS principal Mr. Doug Murray said they applaud the hard work of the entire CHS community — including parents and guardians, teachers, and many additional community members and organizations who aspire to help the school’s students succeed in college and beyond.

"Thank you to GreatSchools for honoring our school with the 2021 College Success Award - Gold," added Mr. Murray.
