The kids are great to each other. we moved to this school when my oldest son was in the 6th grade. He went from struggling in school to getting great grades and was involved in a lot of activities. The bummer part about a small school is the kids don't have all of the options that a larger school would have. they can only take Spanish for a foreign language. All around I wouldnt have my kids go to any other school, Chester is great!

My high school experience at Chester was overall great, I just had to take a lot of online classes to get the education that I want. Class selection was rather limited.
I was hoping that moving to a smaller school the kids would have more opportunity to be involved in the activities, but you can still see the favorites, or if you have money or the right name you may get more opportunities. Overall the school is great not sure you can get away from this in any school unfortunately.
