Chaska High's teachers are excellent and truly care about their students, but the administration does not listen to feedback from students, we have a drug problem, and we have ongoing issues with racism and hate speech. Our music program is excellent and I'm involved in both String Orchestra and Wind Symphony. However, recent budget cuts have cut us down to six-period days and the music and theater programs are next in line. There's a very wide variety of available courses and there are online and summer courses available from the neighboring districts. Overall, the teachers and classes are great, and there are a lot of available extracurriculars, but the administration is horrific.

I wish the administration would listen to the concerns and needs of students. Some other things I would like to see change are the school spending more money on things within the school and a new district administration. I believe that our administration needs to change in order to see more success within our district. In the past few years, we spent large sums of money to find a better site for grading to replace one that worked just fine. Now, our administration determined the old grading system was actually better. We spent so much money that could have been spent on improving things in our school that need to be fixed.
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!
