    "CHS is overrated. Middle of the road students are the least educated. The focus is at the extremes of the spectrum. Teachers at these ends can be talented but arrogant, while the majority of students are herded into large classes with mediocre teachers. Not the best place for students who need or want inspired examples, passion, attention and direction."

    "The school doesn't score that well on math and science standardized tests considering its ranking overall. Guidance is pretty limited and there's a feeling of preferential treatment for the more advanced students. A lot of teachers don't give any feedback or return work and tests. Overall, not so great compared to other schools in other states especially."

    "CHS is a great learning environment. My older daughter has just begun her freshman year in an out of state college and CHS prepared her extremely well with honors classes and AP courses. We are pleased and hopeful that the level of academics remains high there for our next child."

    "Surprisingly good. We moved from very good public school system on E. coast Two kids - one a high achiever and one with learning issues. The teacher quality has been very good - in general - with notable exceptions where kids go to extremes to avoid specific teachers (on-line courses) but that concern is not endemic or an issue only for Chaparral. One of our kids went to elite private school in E with similar issues. Support for our child with learning disabilities has been quite good; most private schools can't compete in that area. AP courses have been very good and accessible. Resultant SAT scores very good. In general kids are great and of high quality. Parent involvement is high and sports programs are outstanding for boys and girls. THIS QUESTIONAIR NEEDS A MEANS TO NOT RESPOND ABOUT PRINCIPAL LEADERSHIP - IF ONE IS NOT IN A POSITION TO EVALUATE. I HAVE BEEN FORCED TO EVALUATE SOMETHING THAT I HAVE NOT BEEN INTIMATELY INVOLVED IN. WHY SHOULD WE HAVE TO PROVIDE AN EMAIL ADDRESS? THAT REQUIREMENT PROBABLY DAMPENS INTEREST IN COMPLETING SUCH QUESTIONAIRES BECAUSE OF SECURITY ISSUES."

    "This school is amazing! Yes, it can be a bit cliquey but there are few people who unwilling to talk to new students just because they are new. Chaparral iis THE most spirited school in the state. Our team are back to back state champions, our boys basketball team has been state runner ups for the past two years, our cheer team are back to back national champions and Arizona State champions, our Pom Squad placed top 5 at Nationals in florida, our girls basketball team has made it to the playoffs the past two years, the wrestling team has had 3 2nd place winners at the state championships, our swim team won state last year, our badmiton team won state this past year and we have several other excelling sports. Not are the sports amazing but the academics are great as well. There has been a student from Chaparral accepted to almost every school in the country (that were applied to) including Princeton and Oberlin. Our Arts programs are also amazing! We have had 4 plays this year with more coming. We have several students who are part of the National Thespian Society as well as several students who have been recongnized throughout the state for their art. Overall this school is great!"
