    "Chester High School has a real sense of community. Unfortunately, they also have a real sense of group exclusion. They could learn how to be more accepting and teaching the students how to be nice instead of accepting bullying as the normal."

    "The school needs to hire new teachers who care about the education of students not new teachers who are there fro the summer vacations and winter breaks. And the food is horrible"

    "There was just so much pointless drama going on, there were very few higher education courses (AP, Dual Credit, etc.) However I made a lot of friends there and participated in every sport i could and the food was great"

    "I love that Chester high school has block scheduling. I like having only four classes per day. It allows more time to complete homework, especially since high school students have such busy schedules and a lot of responsibilities. The most popular classes are the ones with fun teachers. If a teacher has a great personality, the students seem to rush to fill their classes."

    "The teachers are very friendly and willing to help. They want to see every students succeed. The teachers tend to communicate pretty well with every student. They seem to be willing to explore new teaching styles and most of them are furthering their education in order to become better teachers. The teachers are the best part of Chester High School."
