Chippewa Middle School Reviews

I loved most of the teachers and how welcoming the school was. It was a great community to be a part of, and there were many great memories made there. The best part was the Washington D.C. trip in 8th grade. Many of us, now in high school, talk fondly of this trip and still laugh about it.

It was fun. The classes were good and the environment as well. They remodelled the 8th grade wing before I graduated so I’m sure it’s even more modern now.
The parents would love to be ore involved but they really aren't welcome. Open House has become a joke because the principal doesn't value parents and simply wants the night to end as early as possible. She also prohibits parents from ringing younger siblings. I cannot afford babysitters so I could not attend. There are plenty of parents in my situation and the principal does nothing to help us. I feel sorry for the teachers and students of this building.
