My experience with Chamberlain High School was not a very good one. The teachers were all very lenient in missing work, making it hard to prepare yourself for college. Sometimes it feels like the teachers don't care about the students or how they are doing and succeeding or not, rather they just want to give us the materials and sit at the desk without being bothered. My junior year I took the required chemistry class and the teacher often didn't know the topic she was teaching, sometimes making us have to relearn things or learn on our own before the tests. Although as a senior, the Government teacher became the new principal and things have really started to improve.

Chamberlain High School is highly diverse in its academics and extracarriculars. I have personally received a good education for the staff and the district. The staff works hard to push students to success and are excellent in making their students feel comfortable and accepted. Chamberlain High School's fine arts program is one of the best in the area. Overall, as a CHS senior, I enjoyed my time in the district and it was made worthwhile!
I have went to Chamberlain High School for all four years. The teachers have been great helping students get what they need to succeed. Teachers also do a good job at preparing students for either college life, or for simply going straight into the job field after graduation.
