I loved Chesnee High School! They were always willing to help and very understanding of my situation. The teachers are just wonderful and actually care about you. I feel like I was prepared for college in the fact that the teachers always made sure you reached your full potential. They pushed you to the limit. When all the school shootings were happening and students were starting to feel unsafe, our police officer was always there to make sure everyone was okay. We prayed for one another, we lifted each other up, and the best of all is that you will always have a place to call home. I am glad that I graduated from this close netted, caring, and inspiring school. Even the janitors knew everyone by name!

The faculty of this school is very supportive of student led activities. Also, many members of the staff genuinely care for their students. This school pushes their students to success like no other!
At Chesnee High I walk into the building and immediately welcomed by teachers. They care about you and how you feel. Education and your well-being are both equally important. They go above and beyond to make sure not only you learn what you need, but they make sure you know how to apply it to your life. They help you become succesful. I have learned more at Chesnee High than I would have at any other school. The reasoning behind the previous statment is the teachers respect me so it makes me want to respect them. When there is mutual respect it makes learning easier and fun.
