Cumberland Regional High School Cumberland Regional High School, located in the northwest part of Cumberland County, serves students from Deerfield Township, Fairfield Township, Greenwich Township, Hopewell Township, Shiloh Borough, Stow Creek Township and Upper Deerfield Township.

Ground was broken on the school on May 12, 1976, and there were 322 members in its first graduating class in 1978. According to the school’s website, more than 11,000 students have graduated from the high school since then. The school enables students to reach their full academic potential and provides many opportunities for them to learn both inside and outside of the classroom. CRHS aims to inspire and encourage not only the students within their building, but also staff, family and the surrounding community.

The school’s colors are orange and brown and their mascot is the colt. Course areas include Agricultural Education, Fine Arts, Family & Consumer Science, Language Arts, Mathematics, Music, Science, Social Studies, Special Education, Student Community Service, Technology and World Language.

The school’s Red Cross Blood Drive is also sponsored by SADD.
