It was a great school! Good teachers! Amazing staff! But the way the school ran was not always up to par. There were lots of trouble students that were just let go without any sort of consequence. The teachers were great but would choose favorites in the class especially those coaching.

Chanute High School has been a great place to get my high school education. Our school has great facilities and great teachers who care about the students. We have a very diverse school including multiple foreign exchange students each year from all over the world. Our classes are well spread out for different skill levels and offer a ton of electives as well. The one drawback from Chanute High School would be the administration. There has been a different group of administration every year and the do not take student opinions into account as well as they should.
I think the best part about Chanute High School is the teachers and administration. They are able to connect with the students on a personal level as well as maintaining a professional and authoritative status. They are also great at teaching content that is important for students. They often show us that they care about each and every student attending CHS. An example of this is that this Monday, our principle is planning a Thanksgiving dinner for the entire school and paying for it out of his own pocket just because he wants to see the students and teachers come closer together. I, as well as many others, believe it is a great idea. Chanute High School is a great place for quality education.
