 Students of Cedar Hill Prep have consistently been in the top 10 percentile of the nation for the last 8 years.   As an inherent part of our mission, we inspire and encourage this set of core values through our words and actions:  respect for oneself and others; honesty and integrity; responsibility to fulfill one’s obligations and be accountable for one’s words and actions; and a sense of community through our cooperative and collaborative environment.
 Every child at CHP quickly embraces the environment and enjoys the feeling of ownership within the school community.
