Welcome to the Cumberland High School Website.  We are a fully accredited high school!
 Our school's mission is to educate and prepare every student to become confident and caring life-long learners who can make contributions, communicate and function effectively in the 21st Century. As a result of the conscientious, committed, and dedicated efforts of administrators, teachers, students, parents, and the community, CHS will provide an academic environment which values excellence, initiative, and diversity.

Freshmen Transition Night will be Wednesday, July 26th from 6-7 pm in the Cafetorium.  This is being offered by the CHS Administration to review expectations, rules, dress code and academic standards.
