It was a decent school. It just wasn’t as challenging as it should’ve been. It has great opportunities for all types of people from the athletics nonstop scouts coming through or the culinary art students receiving full rides through college thanks to the mentor ship of our seasoned teachers. It teaches things like German and French and has physical education that goes throughout all four years of school, which is a luxury that very few schools have within the nearest 100 miles. It may have many classes but it seems like most are just participation awards with them pushing people through with marks way higher than they deserve, it may just be me but some things should be worked for. Overall I think it’s a good school for the place it is in. Far from perfect sure but it’s something special.
My experience as a High school student in Chinle, AZ has been meh. Growing with my own people has proven to be one of the great things but I feel like there are not enough opportunities there. Also to go along with that the sports there are like not good at all. The way people treat the athletes there is a little overhyped and most students and people there think that sports is the most important thing in the world when really academics should be key. I did not feel like a priority in academics there when I should have been. Sure its a high school and they have great people but they don't have many resources to go around and that needs improvement and again no hate toward my school.
Chinle High School is a mostly Native American school located on the Navajo Reservation. I found the school to be nothing special however it has been getting better. More resources are available to the students compared to previous years, there is more focus on college readiness, and new programs are being added to encourage student involvement. The students could be more outspoken and initiative for the sake of learning these skills. Overall, it was an okay experience considering what little we had until recently.
