The Cavalier Way

Cookeville High School is a community where we stand up for each other and challenge one another to be our best.

  • We treat each other with respect.
  • We work hard, develop our talents, and aim for excellence.
  • We do the right thing because it is the right thing to do, even when no one is looking.
  • We strive to make our school a safe and positive place for everyone.
  • Cavaliers never give up.

Cookeville High School is incredibly appreciative of its community adopters. Without them, many of the CHS activities and events would not be nearly what they are. CHS Community Adopters make Cavalier Nation a better place! Thank you!! Lane Ward
