Chelsea High School Reviews
My four years at CHS has been a mix of good and bad, but mainly good. I really loved the amount of support I received from the Trio Program, guidance counselors, as well as the committed and diligent AP teachers I had. I really want to see CHS improve their teacher retention rate, considering many teachers leave after about 2-3 years at CHS. I strongly believe CHS has a brighter future now because of our new amazing principal, Alexander Mathews. I can't wait to see how CHS will contnue to improve!
Chelsea High School throughout the time I’ve spent has cancelled certain advanced placement classes. But they also cancelled Latin which made other students transfer to another language class because it was a requirement to learn a language for two years. Between 2016 to 2017 the school was infested with flies and caused the school to cancel school for more than a week. It shows that Chelsea High School is unorganized. I have personally found the idea of “Capstone”, which they began in my freshman year useless. As Capstone’s purpose was to prepare us for college. Capstone was poorly executed as students were randomly assigned a teacher each year and were unable to develop a strong relationship with a teacher. Students would not ask feedback for editing their major assignments in the past, but be unable to reflect on their mistakes and improve as a learner. I feel that Capstone was poorly executed and resulted in a waste of time as it did not prepare me for college.
Chelsea high gave me a lot of mixed experiences with my four years there. I can overall express that I am grateful to have had my learning experiences take places in that school. I was able to make friends, be exposed to a diverse community, gain support from my professors, and develop my characteristics. I love how the school gave us a college like schedule so we can adapt to college academics, also the school gave us "iblock" a designated learning time to connect with teachers and gain the help we need. Something I would change would be some of our policies. I believe the bells in between classes should be extended that way students can get to class on time, and the dress code for women be more accepting and not described as a “distraction to other student’s attention towards their education”
