I graduated from Chanhassen High School in 2013, being the first class to attend, ninth through twelfth grade. I was anxious, alongside my classmates, to see how the brand new school would be in comparison to Chaska High School, the school our district outgrew. We were all incredibly pleasantly surprised to see the incredible school spirit, amazing teachers, beautiful building and countless activities to be involved in. Although I was not the most studious of students at the time, I look back fondly on those years, as my teachers and all the staff truly cared about me and wanted to see me succeed. I actually am looking to intern at Chanhassen, as a guidance counselor, in hopes of working there one day. I love this school and this district!

I personally loved attending Chanhassen. The environment is very low key and has a safe feel to it. Academics are completely student-oriented and I often felt like none of my time there was "wasted". Students could talk to and/or make arrangments with teachers at any time with a lot of flexibility. There are also many opportunities to seek help in and outside of school which has benefitted my academics a lot. Chanhassen also offers a lot of classes that could kick-start your child for college. Personally, I took a lot of medically based classes that I am now majoring in. I highly recommend Chanhassen High School for both academic, athletic, and student oriented reasons.
At Chanhassen High School, the students are very self driven. The school has implemented a new program in the last four years I've attended. The flextime program allows students to leave the classroom and work on their assignments in newly refurbished areas throughout the school. These areas have designated noise levels that compensate for their location and number of people in each area. This teaches students how to set their own timeline which is a life skill.
