Chastain Middle School Reviews

Hi, I am a female student that went to Chastain. Chastain isn't all that bad! Yes, the food isn't to some of our liking and the students can be trying sometimes, but overall Chastain is a safe, orderly, and manageable school. Our teachers have high education and they can help and teach students (that want to learn) to their best ability. The principal hopefully currently there is very understanding and fair. We have programs such as NJHS(National Junior Honor Society), Ambassadors Club (where we help elementary students read better), Open Doors in 6th grade, sometimes Challenge Bowl and more. The school participates in Football, Basketball, Soccer (if we have a coach), Tennis, Track, and Volleyball. The school really isn't so bad, but currently Chastain does wear uniforms. I hope you at least give Chastain a chance. Who knows, you may even be VALEDICTORIAN! ;)
