I am genuinely excited and humbled to serve our students, parents, faculty, and community as the Principal of Collierville High School. CHS is ranked among the nations’ top schools by U. S. News and World Report and the seventh best school in Tennessee. These rankings are a direct result of an outstanding student body, dedicated faculty & staff, and devoted community.

The CHS Faculty and Staff maintain high expectations for all students in favor of providing the best possible learning environments. We value curiosity, creativity, collaboration, and character. Our students grow through authentic learning experiences that grant opportunities of application in order to demonstrate deep understandings of concepts.

Second Semester Exam Information and Schedule
A student having a 90 or higher average for the two terms in a specific course, and having three (3) or fewer excused absences in that same course will be exempted from the semester exam if the student desires. When a student is exempted from the examination, the semester average will be the average of the two term grades and any state-mandated exam as outlined above. ANY UNEXCUSED ABSENCE IN THE COURSE WILL DISQUALIFY THE STUDENT FROM ALL EXEMPTIONS. EXEMPTIONS APPLY ONLY TO TEACHER-MADE SEMESTER EXAMINATIONS. Twelfth grade students are eligible for exam exemption during both semesters. All other students who meet the above requirements may be exempted for only the second semester exam.
