Would say i'm not very impressed with Chippewa Valley High School anymore. I have a son that goes there and had multiple problems with health and safety issues. The administration seems to be outdated, and is more reactive to problems then proactive. Wrote a complaint about a principal, never got a response from the admin about the status of it. Multiple trips to the ER for my son. They replied with "what do you want us to do?"

Take your child to Dakota. The faculty is newer/younger, and they understand the new world of allergies and being proactive in your children's health.

I really enjoyed my experience at Chippewa Valley High School. It was a really diverse school but it also had its cliches. Having more inclusive clubs might really help promote positive culture there.
I had amazing teachers and not so amazing teachers. I believe that there needs to be more peer-on-peer tutoring in calculus and other areas of math and science, and even history and English. Often, students are too intimidated by their instructors so peer-on-peer tutoring could really help students open up and improve their grades.
Also, it might be a good thing to invite some alumni now in college back to the high school to talk about their transition to college because I really wish I had that when I was in high school.
Chippewa is filled with amazing teachers who genuinely care about your education; However, this is not the only thing that makes the school great. Chippewa Vallej offers various courses for everyone’s needs, as well as many opportunities to get invlolved with the school and join different clubs or programs. What I love most is the amount of options for classes, such as their medical program, which helped guide my career choice.
