I loved being apart of Chippewa Valley High school. I had the best high school experience here. The teachers and staff are really involved with the students and are always trying to get students on the right path. One thing I loved most about going here was how organized each class setting was. Each day of class started off with lecture notes and from there you'll do classwork and whatever isn't finished is homework. It was the same daily routine so you cannot get lost. Teachers would also help students during their lunch breaks and sometimes even after school to prepare them for an upcoming test or quiz and sometimes just for extra practice. However, one thing I would change about Chippewa would be the school activities. Every activity given at Chippewa was an annual routine and nothing ever changed. For instance, every spirit week we had consisted of doing the same thing and students began to grow so tired of it that they stop participating.
Review Chippewa Valley High School
My current teachers are great at teaching! They have engaging real-life stories that relate to the subject. They are willing to do their best for their students. Like setting and planning field trips so students can experience the real world. I like that my teachers don't judge students of any "stupid" question they ask. They acknowledge that everyone is different and genuinely need help in their studies. However, one year I had one teacher that was very unapproachable. They were always on the computer typing emails and sometimes judged the students. Overall, the teachers at my school are awesome because I actually learn and do amazing on my homework and test scores.
I like how Chippewa Valley has a wide variety of clubs and activities to participate in and the sports are good competition in the area. I think the teachers at Chippewa Valley do not do the work needed. With only 33% of our graduating class being college ready after the SAT, the teachers should be teaching more and giving less busy work. Also, the school could be more organized and show students how to treat each other. The last thing that should change is how the administration handles things. After a student in my class died due to his use of drugs, the school often memorializes him as a great kid although he did something very illegal and dangerous. The administration should use it as a drug awareness instead. Also, three girls were drinking in the student section at a football game, were suspended for 10 days, but returned to the sports team they were apart of and continue to participate is athletic related activities.
