A very good school overall, but lacks diversity in certain areas, as many students are closed-minded on certain topics and tend to pick on other students sometimes; the art program is very good and has a lot of potential so it would be nice to see some of the money that goes towards sports and other mainstream activities go to less funded programs and classes such as art, economics, etc...it would also be nice to have a debate class, as well as having other people from 11th and 12th grade come up with the prom theme and also having people from each grade come up with days for spirit week!

My experience with Chatham High School has been extremely pleasant and easygoing. Most of the teachers are very understanding and open to helping students with anything from personal issues to a recommendation letter for college. I feel that most of the teachers are very well educated and truly enjoy teaching our future generations of working Americans. I absolutely love that Chatham High has absolutely no toleration for bullying or discrimination as well, which ultimately lays the foundation for our noticeably positive learning environment.
I love Chatham High School. It is the best school in pittsylvania county in my opinion. All the teachers, staff, principals, custodians, and lunch ladies are really nice. I have no complaints about Chatham High School at all. All the sporting events are always enjoyable and safe to watch.
