Chesapeake High School Reviews

My time at Chesapeake High school overall expanded my knowledge and had helped me grow as a person so I can be sucessful in my future education and in my career. Chesapeake High school presents as many opportunities as possible for its students to receive a good education. Such as offering a variety of clubs, classes and outside of school opportunities like field trips, guest speakers, and even colleges visiting our school. Chesapeake High school also has its downfalls. One being the Regional Program. This has caused many issues between residing students within the school itself. Another continual issue is the lack of involvement between students and school counselors. I believe it is essential for counselors and students to interact on a regular basis in order to prepare high school students for college, give them college information and discuss possible careers.

Chesapeake High School is a good school, I believe, but I think that it could be much better if there were not so many issues with racism and other aspects of that. It could also be much better if the students showed a lot more respect for one another and abide by the rules so that the administration does not have to continue to put place as much restrictions that affect everyone else. Although Chesapeake High School may have some things that can be improved, there are things that make the experience worthwhile. For example, there is a one hour period called "CHS Hour" that allows us students to either eat lunch for half an hour for one block and then go to a class to make up work, study, ask for assistance from our teachers, etc. for another block and vice versa. I really appreciate that our school has implemented a way for us to improve our academic standings.
With my four years at CHS, I've met amazing staff that went out of their way to make sure you meet your goals. It's a rarity to see in most public schools I've been to. If you're looking to send your child to a school where they'll receive great help and strive to succeed.

The building is outdated, was built in the late 70's. The bathrooms are old and corroded, the locker rooms are abysmal, not to mention that most of the classrooms have improper sound insulation.

Most schools in AAC have been completely re-done with new structures and everything. This school is showing its age.To be fair, they are renovating parts of it, but not fast enough and to the quality that is acceptable.

It's also supposed to be an "Information Technology" School, but don't bother. Our main media center did get new computers with 7th gen Intel processors, but our other labs are hopelessly outdated. The classes related to Photography and Audio/Video are using old equipment with outdated standards.
