    "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."

    "Chagrin schools are complacent and reluctant to change. They teach to the test and as a result score well on state tests, which in turn leads to their over inflated reputation. They do not expect the child to think and become an independent thinker, merely to learn by rote. In addition their teaching method does not allow the more able child to reach their full potential. Frequently the curriculum is dull and stale, and consists of worksheets and assignments that have been handed out for many years [15+]. The school district is not open to new ideas or indeed any criticism from parents. There is a well known unwritten rule within the Chagrin community 'Do not criticize or complain'."

    "Chagrin Schools is blessed to have great families. Almost all families have two college educated parents many with advanced degrees. They score wel on state tests as do most middle upper class white families. Serves the gifted student well but does not produce National Merit Scholars and limited entries into top schools. WHY? This is a question they cannot answer. The classes are set in stone and are repeated over and over. Not a lot of innovation. Is this the reason they have the same result each year ?"
