Welcome to Charlestown High School, home of the Pirates!
Our small school community gives students the opportunity to develop close relationships while our rigorous academic offerings prepare them for college and/or high-paying careers right after graduation. Through a partnership with Ivy Tech, students can earn more than 60 Dual Credits at no charge, leaving high school with a college degree. CHS is one of the only Project Lead the Way (PLTW), a nationally recognized pre-engineering program, sites in Southern Indiana, with pathways in Engineering and Biomedical Science.
Our state-of-the-art science labs, athletic turf fields, and various updates throughout the school give students all the tools they need to succeed.
CHS also boasts 19 varsity sports, an award-winning choir, a student-run TV and radio station, a marching band, and an excellent theater department. Check out our website to learn more or contact us today for a tour!

There are several advantages to downloading the Ride360 app to access bus route info. Not only will it provide you with the bus information but you can live track the school bus your child is assigned to within the app. The transportation department utilizes the app to communicate with parents regarding bus changes/time changes. (When you are setting up the app for the first time, it will ask for the school your child attends. Please type in Greater Clark County Schools.)
