Chariho High School Reviews

I've been going to Chariho since freshman year. There's nothing that stands out about this school, I think it's like the average public high school. There is a major lack of racial/ethnic diversity. Me being a minority, have a hard time feeling comfortable in this school because it facilitates the needs of white people and marginalizes minority opinions. The school tolerates racism; I've had a few teachers allow racist and ignorant remarks in their classroom. I had a racist incident with a staff member and the school admin seemed like they wanted to throw the problem under a rug rather than make me feel comfortable. Academically, the teachers do their jobs, but none of them stand out to me. The curriculum is as good as public schooling gets. One thing that stands out is Chariho's CTC program, I think that's what helps the school stand out.

Chariho has many different opportunities for students. However, the school is filled with ignorance and staff who are not responsible for educating the students on life lessons. Many racist and judgemental comments have been made by not only students, but also teachers. The environments can be uncomfortable. In addition, the school holds a large strictness for students who are on the lower side of the educational level, but they do not encourage students who are not being challenged to pursue a more rigorous course. Finally, many teachers do not take into consideration that students are participating in things outside of school, such as jobs or non-school related athletics.
I am heading into my senior year of high school at Chariho. The school has given me a great experience so far. There are various opportunities available to make the experience even better such as sports, clubs, and diversified activities. The staff is good. They do a wonderful job of running the school and guiding students towards the right path. Academics are challenging all-around but worthwhile in the end as there are many classes to choose from. There is not much diversity. However, Chariho has a sister school in China that allows students to go there and experience their culture and vice versa. Overall, I have nothing bad to say about Chariho. My teachers, counselors, and peers have led me to where I am today.
