Overall, it has been a very good experience at Chaska High School. The teachers, for the most part, are very helpful and know exactly what they are talking about. They know what they need to do to make sure everyone is understanding the material, and they give us all the resources we need to be successful. The atmosphere at CHS is pretty inclusive and there is not much bullying at all. People can feel free to be themselves and that creates a lot of diversity at my school. So for the most part, I have loved my time at Chaska High School!

When I attended Chaska High school it was a very welcoming environment, and the teachers cared about their students. Although, the one thing I would say should be improved is how students weren’t as involved with school pride such as participating in spirit week. Though Chaska have a wide variety of programs that all students can find at least one thing they are interested in. I am very interested in art and I found a lot of outlets where I could experiment and figure out what I would like to do.
My over all experience was good! I loved all the teachers that I had throughout the 4 years. The teachers were also there to help me out whenever I needed. One thing I would change is the hybrid class setting. Originally they were meant to feel like a college setting. This year I’m in two different hybrid classes and neither of them feel like a college class. We attend class every day vs going to class two or three days a week and homework to complete during non class time. I think they need to change it to where they feel like college class because they want to prepare us for college and I think that is a great way to get us ready.
