    "As a former 8th grade student in this school, its kinda a disappointment. Some of the teachers are worth remembering they teach actual lessons, but some just follow rules, they don't appeal to every learning style with makes it harder on students. Now the students in that school, if your child is very respectable, responsible, and tolerant expect him to change when a kid hits middle school he becomes different he goes to friends that could be "Bad" in a way, dating becomes a problem, who you are becomes a problem. "Pre-Teens" have become monsters because of how they "evolved" socially. They fight more, curse more, yell more. Mostly because examples from others, its like a disease. When you get friends in any year of middle school, its the friends you want to worry about first. always every school you go to, the first friends you get show the image of the school. If they are bad then your child will be like them because he believes that's how everyone is. i would recommend this school if your child was honest then you would probably wont have any problems. further more its an o.k school. ( ) oh and making the internet better would probably help the school during map tests."

    "This school held a cross country meet last week. Children who asked to use the bathrooms were told to go in the bushes just like the little league kids do. They would not even allow the visiting coaches into the building. I wouldn't send my children to a third world school like this one!"

    "Chippewa is a fine school that has many learning opportunities for students that want to strive in academics and extracurriculars. The teachers are very caring and knowledgable."

    "I have to disagree that this is a great school. My niece has nothing but problems here and the staff ignores the issues. Very sad. May have been a great school a long time ago, but not now. I am on here now researching better schools for my niece since my sister has no choice but to remove her."

    "This comment is @ the last reviewer. You sound like an awesome kid. Educate yourself. It is SO possible. Ask the librarians to help you select books that match your interest, check out the homeschool section filled with academic books that may be more enriching than what you get at school, research online by topic, talk to the homeschoolers at the library they will be more than willing to share everything they know, you may even find an online class. The library has a book called The Well Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer that may be helpful. You're smart and you can do it."
