For being in a town of under 3,000, Chatfield has been a great high school. There are some really great teachers here, even if not all are great. The teachers really enjoy teaching and it shows. Lots of clubs to get involved in and good coaches for the sports. It is really easy to get involved in many different clubs and sports due to the small size. School workload is perfect. There is a good amount of homework, but not a ridiculous amount. Lunches are not great, but also not terrible. I have not noticed any serious bullying going on. I've always felt safe. The school's always locked and it actually becomes a nuisance, which is not a bad problem. Lots of different class options from automotive literature to production engineering.

My experience at Chatfield High School has definitely been amazing. Although Chatfield is a small school compared to most, having the personal relationship with teachers and other faculty members is definitely an added bonus. At Chatfield you can get the one on one connection and help from each teacher personally which really helps when planning for college! Besides the teachers, the students are all friends which definitely make high school something to cherish! One downfall of Chatfield if we have little to no diversity through the high school. One up side to that is it keeps the students minds open and accepting and really pushes them to see different places. All together Chatfield has taught me great lessons and been a fantastic school for me to spend my time at.
At first glance, Chatfield is a wonderful place to raise your kids and grow your family. However, when you get to the heart of Chatfield High School, you see it for what it is -- a judgmental, bigoted, close-minded prison. My principal always talked about bullying but when I was harassed, he just sat there and nodded his head. Chatfield was a joke and boy am I happy that the joke is over. I'm on to better places and better things.
