I love Chariho because of the teachers and the students who call it their school. I would love to see more communication between the clubs so that it is clear which events belong to which club, but the amount of extracurriculars that are offered are amazing and the drama club is sheer perfection!
I like the sports, the academics and the clubs. Makes you always feel involved! I always feel comfortable coming into school each in everyday and feel excited to learn something new in this environment.
