Parent of student at Catoctin High School,
Regrettably it is not a very diversified community as Thurmont is a largely Caucasian, rural community. However DC and Gettysburg are a bus trip away for educational experiences. The typical CHS student is well-rounded, friendly and active. There are no gangs, a few sports-based clicks and a lot of students focused on either career or secondary education goals from their freshman year. I'm thrilled to say that bullying is not a serious problem at CHS. There is also a strong 4-H community and yes we have a Drive Your Tractor to School Day.
