Chester High School has a real sense of community. Unfortunately, they also have a real sense of group exclusion. They could learn how to be more accepting and teaching the students how to be nice instead of accepting bullying as the normal.

I love that Chester high school has block scheduling. I like having only four classes per day. It allows more time to complete homework, especially since high school students have such busy schedules and a lot of responsibilities. The most popular classes are the ones with fun teachers. If a teacher has a great personality, the students seem to rush to fill their classes.
I personally participate in the majority of the clubs and organizations in my school. I wish our school had some more, though, for certain possible career interested such as FBLA. Sometimes I feel as if the students not involved in the clubs and organizations think they are a big joke. I wish everyone would take them more seriously.
