Cedarburg High School (CHS) is a public, co-educational high school located in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, USA. Part of the Cedarburg School District, the school has an enrollment of 1117 students.


Classes offered at Cedarburg High School are grouped into 13 departments: Art, Business and Information Technology, Engineering/Technology Education, English, Family and Consumer Education, Foreign Language, Health, Mathematics, Music, Physical Education, Science, Social Studies and Special Education departments. Foreign languages taught at the school include French, German and Spanish.


Since the current school building was completed in 1956, the campus has expanded several times. In 2002 construction was completed on a project that included a new eight-lane swimming pool with diving well, a new field house with a 160-meter track and several basketball courts. The 2006-07 academic year brought renovations to the outdoor track and football stadium. A 3500-seat stadium was constructed, and an 8-lane synthetic track was installed. The majority of the funds for this reconstruction was provided by the Cedarburg Booster Club and private donors. The school has over ten acres of irrigated land designated for team practices.
