Chautauqua Lake Secondary School Reviews

My experience at Chautauqua Lake was something I'll remember for the rest of my life. The atmosphere there is amazing, people are always willing to help you out whether it's teachers, or even fellow classmates. People always say the friends you have in elementary school will probably not be the ones you have in hugh school and on into the rest of your life, however, I completely disagree, the people I have grown up with and the friends I have made at this school are countless. My five friends and I have been friends ever since pre-k from going to each other's birthday parties when we were five, to driving each other around goung to sporting events to root on our friends and our schools athletic teams. I have come to realize compared to surrounding schools that our academic departments and the amount of classes we have exceeds many schools around us coming from a small town with very small schools.

If I were able to, I'd go to a school that did not tolerate such close-mindedness as Chautauqua Lake seems to let slide along. Chautauqua Lake Central School is located in a rural area that lacks diversity of all sorts. Most people in the area are Christian and Caucasian. Racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia are clear in the hallways of my school. Education on race, gender, and sexuality could solve many of these widespread issues. Day after day, I watch teachers ignore student's comments. United States History was a shock to me, for my class laughed and made racist remarks throughout the course. I would love for an adult to step up to the plate and educate those around them about biases and social constructs that hurt others--I am waiting for a day of improvement.
I like the many opportunities offered here and the teachers are happy to help you if you are willing to try.
