Chariton High school was a great experience for me in many ways. First of all, this school gave me enough knowledge that I needed to know for college. The teachers were usually always willing to help me understand something that was hard and respected me. Chariton High School even offered college classes for free. Next, if you are different from everyone (clothes wise, disability) no-body will put you down. Almost everyone in this school was respectful to me even if I dressed different. But if someone is annoying, rude and disrespectful, they should not expect any better from these students. But, I would like some things changed. I would really like it if the teachings of the Bible were taught in this school. Overall, I enjoyed Chariton High School and recommend it to any one who would ask.

Overall, a positive experience. I miss high school now that I’m out. Mostly good/great teachers with some not-so-great ones sprinkled in. You get to choose most of your classes so the workload/difficulty is really up to the student.
This is my first year in Chariton High School, but it's been one of the best years. We have wonderful teacher who will sit down and go at your pase. They help with all they can, and won't give up even if you do. I also love how we have many choices for our classes and how much control we have, but I feel like we could have more classes at your fingertips but the school doesn't offer them. Our school food has many choices but the main meal isn't very good we have fake food in my opinion. Sometimes you will get a rotten orange or dry out rice but they do have many choices we have cooks choice then the cold served food and then a hot bar. What one of biggest pet peeves about your school is that we can get milk with just regular price but if we want water it costs extra. So Chariton High School has its pros and cons but all in all it's a good school that cares about their students
