Every student always has someone that they can go to when they need someone to talk to or if they’re just looking for guidance. If I had to describe Chelmsford High School in one word, I would use the word community. You will never find another school that has the same sense of community as this school does. Between the faculty and the students, the environment is great!

During my time at CHS, I experienced nothing but positivity and full support from my classmates and teachers. The community at CHS is accepting and I found myself feeling comfortable within my first few weeks of my freshman year. The friends I made during high school were caring and always pushed me to be my best self - some qualities that truly embody the Chelmsford High School community. The music department gave, and still gives, me great joy. The experiences I had as a musician were unique and allowed for me to grow immensely as a musician. Whether it be playing in the all-student pit orchestra, being the marching band's drum major, or performing at jazz concerts, I had the time of my life with my fellow musicians and directors, and made memories I will never forget. One aspect that I'd change about CHS is that they should focus more on the performing arts. CHS emphasizes their sports more, but I feel like both areas are equally talented.
I've had a very good experience at CHS. The teachers are fabulous but the administration isn't the greatest. I've learned a lot from them. I've participated in many different clubs and activities that are all very fun and well supported. The school dances as well as other events are hit or miss, but the teachers really care about us having a great time in and out of school!
