    May 2020 News & Highlights

      A Word from Superintendent Dr. Rosa Atkins  Dear staff, family, and community: It’s official — Charlottesville High School’s “Victory Lap” was triumphant! The drive-through graduation event featured several CHS-related selfie stations (including a mural painted by CHS teacher Nathan Alexander) and a Black Knights spirit station.
