Chickasaw City High School Reviews
I moved to Chickasaw High School my 9th grade year. Moving to Chickasaw was different for me because it allowed me to connect with more people than just my family. Before moving, I had a lack of knowledge because of the school I originated from. They allowed me to play, communicate with others during class, and sometimes skip school. My mother felt as If I needed to be somewhere better, she felt as If I needed to be at a school where I am disciplined for my behavior, and most importantly at a school where every one of my teachers know everything about me. That school is Chickasaw, Chickasaw has been my favorite school every since I started attending it. The staff make sure they provide great resources to help better your future, but that doesn't matter If you take those things for granted.
I am a senior, I have been here since sixth grade when it opened and forced me to come here since I lived in Chickasaw as it broke away from Mobile, blacklisting me and others here. The only thing I enjoy here is the JROTC system. It's only been open seven years, it could be a lot worse but a lot better as well. They have changed rules, uniforms, principals, and teachers constantly, sometimes good but other times poor. Of course it isn't all the school board's fault, there are plenty of students that do not respect their teachers, peers, classrooms, and even themselves. Chickasaw is also relying to heavily on athletics rather than academics. The football players get to miss classes and are given "special treatment" from teachers. At the end of my junior year we lost about seven teachers to other schools or even them being fired, now it is not even the end of the first quarter and we lost three.
Overall it's ok, My son has dealt with bullying at first but its handled. Teachers do not communicate as effectively as wanted but overall it's an ok school.
