I love Chatham Charter. I have been there since my freshman year and I have met my best friends there. Since the classes are small, you really connect with the other students and your teachers. I know I can always go to my teachers when I have an issue because they always down to talk. The college credits provided are amazing and really prepare you for the college life. We have just about every sports team besides football at our school. I absolutely love Charter and wouldn’t change schools for anything.

I've been at Chatham Charter since kindergarten. I met my best friend and we have been friends for 12 years now. For the most part, all the teachers are good, they are very nice and they really do care. Also, we have small classes, the largest class you'll have in about 25, the smallest about 5. We have a junior beta club (middle school) and beta club (high school). We have many sports, such as basketball, baseball, soccer, golf, volleyball, tennis, cross country, and wrestling. We do not have a uniform but we do have a dress code. We don't have a real cafeteria, which I really wish we did, but we do an order for different restaurants like Elizabeth's Pizza, Dominos, and Chick-Fil-A. Also, for Juniors and Seniors, you are allowed to go off campus to eat. Lastly, another really awesome thing about Charter is that we do duel-enrolled classes with CCCC, and credits that we can transfer to future colleges.
Coming from several previous school who were around the same size as Chatham Charter, I am used to the small school atmosphere. Everybody knows everybody! However, this has really been a problem throughout high school. With all the drama that comes with being a teenager, the school lacks any knowledge on how to deal with it. Major scandals go unpunished and students take advantage of it. The school also lacks adequate resources at which the school is growing. There aren't even enough parking places for the 100 drivers we have now. While Chatham Charter did prepare me through strenuous college classes, I feel as though I'm missing out on a high school experience. I have the stress and work load of a college student while being treated like a high school student and given very little freedom. Chatham Charter needs to significantly alter how they treat their students if they want to succeed as a school.
