Overall, attending Chippewa Falls High School was a good experience. The academics were strong, and the teachers helped to make the material manageable and engaging. The sport and music departments were great, and they really added a lot of fun and enjoyment outside of the classroom. As far as trying to improve the school, increasing club availability and student involvement would be beneficial. Nevertheless, I'm proud to be a Cardinal!

The teachers at Chippewa Falls Senior High School (Chi-Hi) are top notch. All of the teachers I have encountered throughout my four years of attending Chi-Hi have been absolutely phenomenal at making themselves available for the students whenever someone is in need of a little extra practice or help with a particular subject. However, like any High School, there are some things that need some changing. The disciplinary system is definitely lacking; the consequences for bullying and harassing students usually end with a "firm" talking to and not much else. I've experienced this personally. Often times, going to the principals ends with more harassment. Overall, I feel that Chi-Hi is a very good school with an abundance of opportunities for students to make connections through after-school activities, sports, or clubs. The curriculum is top notch with fantastic educators. I am proud to call Chi-Hi home.
Improvements in the school have been stagnant for a long time, as administration refuses to take student input into consideration when attempting to make changes. Almost all recent changes have been either horizontal or they have been downgrades. Luckily, the new principal Ms. Goodman seems to be trying to change that. I am hopeful that in the next few years we will finally see real improvement at Chippewa Falls High School.
