CCHS to me, unlike most high schools for other people, was like a home. Not only because of the circumstances that caused me to see the place as my home physically, but more because of the people, the teachers, the students, even the administration, that made me feel welcomed and loved, a feeling that can only be so real in a family. Of course, the tight knit community had its problems, but even the problems were there because people cared. Without love from all the school, I would not have been able to thrive in high school and attend UCLA. CCHS prepared me for college and my future life. There is a lot more to discover about life and about myself, but CCHS gave me the tools and a good starting point. CCHS will always be the beginning in my heart.
我于2008年到CCHS读11年级。 在CCHS的两年期间，我得到了众多教职员的帮助和关注。 他们帮助我在文化和学习方面迅速适应美国的节奏。 我还记得入学的第一天，当时校监和他的太太热情地欢迎我。 接待我的家庭时常让我感受家的温暖，他们不仅仅是给一个在异国求学的学子提供一个舒适的环境，作为监护人，他们承担着更重的责任，照顾着我们这些寄宿在他们家的学生的方方面面。 尽管在一开始的时候，我们的英语很蹩脚，但是这里的老师对我非常的耐心，在英语提高上给了我莫大的帮助。 12年级的时候我开始申请大学，学术辅导员Miss Carol Wong在大学申请方面给了我相当多的指导；校监Mr.Hom亲自审阅我的毕业论文，并提出了宝贵的意见。
My wife and I visited CCHS last Christmas. After talking with my daughter’s teachers, we were deeply impressed with the love, responsibility and passion to the students. My daughter and her classmate showed us around the campus, and we were amazed at the students’ unique art works displayed on the walls. Spacious classrooms, clean hallways, brand new gym and auditoriums. The school facilities are just so much better than we thought they’d be. Luckily, we happened to be there for the annual Christmas Music Concert. Watching the students perform, listening to the melodious singing, we were just so proud of CCHS and the students. In one word, we are thankful that God brought our precious daughter Daisy to CCHS. We hope that she can study and grow happily in the U.S., and one day she will be an honor to CCHS.
My son has been studying at CCHS for 3 years. Every year he comes back to China during the summer. We have seen him become healthier and more positive, moreover, he is making progress in all areas, and has more interest in studying. To look in a contrary way, the kids in my son’s age group in China are having such a hard time in school, and it is not easy for their parents either. The pressure students in China are facing makes their lives difficult. We thank God for the special grace He gave to our son, and special thanks to Mrs. Huang and CCHS superintendent, Mr. Robin Hom. They gave us great help to opening the door to overseas study. We are also thankful for the education and support from the CCHS teachers and the care from his host family. We feel very peaceful having our child study at CCHS with the hope that he will have a bright future.
We first had the idea of not having our child educated in China because of the stressful high school entrance test and the College Entrance Examination. With the idea of trying it out, we had our daughter enroll in CCHS and she flew to America on Aug. 11, 2008. During the 3 years at CCHS, Jessie participated on the school volleyball team and Chorale. In one of the years she was in the Chorale, they won a prize in a great competition. My biggest impression is, at CCHS, my child was healthier and more confident, and her grades were a lot of better than before. After Jessie graduated from CCHS, she was accepted by U.C. Irvine. We are truly thankful for the help from Mrs. Huang and all the teachers at CCHS.
