I like that for the most part, the teachers are very personable and seem to really care about the education of their students. They go out of their way in order to give students every opportunity to succeed. The only bad thing about this school is that the facilities are getting sort of outdated and the security of the building shows it.
My experience at Chesnee High was amazing. It is a very small community, so everybody is like a big family. The teachers are nice and helpful. They really want to see you be successful. Even if that mean extra help, advise or anything. Chesnee High do a lot of service projects. I remember my junior year, one of my peer house burned down. Everybody in the school came up with money and clothes to help their family. I played two sports, volleyball and basketball. My junior year the volleyball team went to state for the first time. Unfortunately we lost, but it was a memory I will never forget. When we arrived back to the school. It was so many people there for support. With so much positive, Chesnee did have one down fall. We are considered a division 2A school. We had about 600 student in the whole school. The amount the school district gave us a year was very small. Instead of everybody having their own book to take home, we had to use a classroom set.
