CPHS was constructed in 2011 at a cost of $44 million and was designed by Evan Terry Associates.

This wing has its own after-hours entrance and lobby, which allows the remainder of the school to be secured for after-hours events.
The school also includes a career/technical wing with a family and consumer sciences lab, an electronics lab and a cosmetology lab where students will be able to work toward a cosmetology license.
