Chaparral has high expectations for students in order for them to have a successful life after graduation. The academics has to be what I admire most about Chaparral, including many friendly teachers willing to help you if you're struggling. Not only do we have helpful teachers, but the school also provides NHS (National Honors Society) students as tutors in the library who are willing to help with any subject. Onto the student category, students are extremely friendly and know how to have fun. Football and volleyball games are considered the most exciting times of the year due to how crazy the student section gets. We love to get together as much as possible to create a more relaxed environment instead of only studying with academics. Overall, Chaparral is the perfect school for any student who's looking to receive high education and a chance to have the exciting and fun Wolverine school experience.

Chaparral is a pretty average school, but there is absolutely no diversity. It is 99.9% white kids and it is white-washed. You can tell that no one knows how to act around anyone not exactly like them. I feel like this sets up students with a more difficult future, having to get along with people later in life. Students are also very sheltered. They don't really have to go through any hard times while living in this rich town. The staff, for the most part, are really amazing people though. The amount of school spirit and sense of community that is seen during events like Wish Week or Spirit Weeks is incredible and powerful to be a part of.
I have had an amazing experience at Chaparral High School. The teachers are incredibly supportive and always push their students to succeed. The performing arts program, especially the award-winning theatre department, is amazing and definitely my favorite part of the high school experience. Chaparral also has a top of the line security department, so I always felt safe.
