    "OK so this high school is a "lower-upper" school experience. The school is not so great based on test scores and the demographics of this district. They really don't have a lot to offer academically, it is a very "throw back" school stuck in a time warp. If you want any thing challenging, like a STEM program, or excellent collage guidance services, this is not the place for you. Fights, cursing, etc are all the norm at this school. I think the school tries, but there is too much focus on the kids that are having behaviour problems. There is a huge drug problem, not only in the high school, but the middle school as well, my child has seen drug use first hand at these schools. Some of the classes are out of control and the teacher cannot teach, just looking at the school, you would say it is obviously in a financially strained area. There is nothing done to the grounds to make it attractive, there are spots with no grass, trash, etc. I can see that the teachers are trying, but thoses who want to learn and may be a middle learner are sometimes overlooked. I would advise parents to either move into a better district that can offer more opportunities or consider a private school."

    "This school admittedly, has a not-so great reputation. However, many of these are exaggerated. There are issues within the School and Student Body, (foul language is more than prevalent, drugs are not unheard off to the district, average to below average standardized test scores, etc.), but there is plenty right with school as well. There is a fantastic music program, offering several choruses and bands. There's a wide variety of sports for students to choose from, with the most popular being football, and of course the parents love to be involved with all extracurricular activities. . Another point, is there is not one teacher that will not sacrifice their own time, and go far beyond their job title to assist a student in need. For me the largest problem in the school is the sheer lack of pride. When something goes wrong, or there is an issue, it is not uncommon to hear, "That's Chi for you" or "Welcome to Chi". It is this mentality that I believe causes several of the problems within the district in the first place. While I can openly admit that my school has more than it's fair share in issues, it's the school I have unwavering pride for, and there's no where else I'd rather go."

    "I have two children who attended this district K-12 and they both did extremely well. There are excellent teachers and classes, but students must put forth the effort. One of my children received a full tuition scholarship to a highly ranked university and due to the AP courses at the high school, had enough college credits for an entire semester. My other child is currently still at the high school and doing well. This district is what you make of it. If you are an involved parent and your children are good students who are willing to work, there are lots of opportunities. My children participated in sports and many activities and had a great high school experience."

    "I had two of my children go through Chichester. It is a so-so academic school. Very little displine. Absolutely horrible drugs, bullying, foul language, etc. If there was another public high school that I could have sent them to, they would have been there! Thank goodness they had a good upbringing & didn't give in to peer pressure. My poor son studied his tail off in hs & had to take courses in the summer to get into college. The teachers (for the most part) don't care."
