    "Chagrin Falls is a beautiful place to live but unfortunately it is a homogenous town with very little tolerance for individuality. There is an attitude of superiority in the community and that is reflected in the schools. Cliques, mean-spirited competitiveness, and gossip are big problems in the schools. Sure, these things exist in all school settings. However, at this school, the parents and teachers tolerate the exclusionary behavior. The vast majority of parents care more about their childrens' popularity than anything else. Because the parents are obsessed with their children's popularity, in addition to wanting to look like the "cool" parents, risky behavior runs rampant. The vast majority of kids are drinking too much and most of the parents are happy to allow their kids to drink in their basement while they have their adult party on the first floor. They defend their behavior by saying, "I'd rather them drink at home than to be driving around risking their lives and the lives of others." These clueless parents really believe that their kids only drink at home. Many of these parents end up in rehab themselves and that's exactly where their kids will be in the future."

    "As a staff member I find this school to be a very excellent place. Students are bright and they care about learning. The district has many community and parent support organizations. The programming opportunities for a school of this size is amazing. The school even does a great job to support the lower achieving child and the middle of the road learner as well as high achievers. The school recently put together a five year strategic plan with a vision to "provide a personalized education for all students." This is a school that has warm and genuine staff and leaders. It is a very unique and special."

    "While there are some true strengths that can attributed to the Chagrin Falls School District - small class size, some very dedicated teachers and administrators,and a strong offering of AP and Honors classes, the weaknesses so accurately described by the student reviewer below unfortunately negate any pluses of this school system. There is a pervasive cliquishness that permeates virtually all aspects of the Chagrin Falls schools . Bullying, extensive use of drug and alcohol, and interference of educational programs and activities by over involved parent groups - seeking to promote the agendas of their own small group of children- make this a school district to steer clear of. A Favorite term "Lifers" used to describe students and parents who have never lived elsewhere sort of says it all. In the end, this problematic culture only hurts the students - many can't transition to college or to life beyond their comfortable cliques."

    "The teachers are very knowledgeable and helpful in their taught subjects. Many of them offer great advice to their students to use beyond the classroom. Almost every teacher that I have worked with at Chagrin is very passionate about the subject they teach. Some of them have enough of a realistic to gain their student's like of them as a person and teacher, rather than just a teacher. The kids are very cliquey because most of them have been classmates since they were in preschool. I have been in Chagrin since the middle school, and I have only made a few close friends in my grade since then. I'm glad that I'm finally a senior this year. Chagrin is notorious for its academically superior students students who smoke weed, drink, and party. I'm very glad that I never got involved with that stuff. While most of the students have a 3.0+ grade point average and take honors and/or AP classes, many of them are incredibly ignorant of topics outside of their hometown."
