Chisago Lakes High School is an amazing and safe place to learn. Here teachers love their jobs and make long lasting relationships with students to help them succeed in their life after high school. The best part about being a wildcat is being in a community of friends, teachers, coaches and faculty that care about you and are willing to help you succeed. Students are encouraged to get involved in sports, clubs and cheering on their peers. Chisago Lakes is unique because of the classes they offer in agriculture, engineering, autos, woodworking and welding that give students life skills they wouldn’t learn in core curriculum. I enjoy going to school to learn new things, spend time with friends, participating in sports and making myself a better person. I love being a wildcat and wouldn’t change it for the world.

I thought Chisago Lakes was a good school, as it gave me the chance to get a good education and get me to college. I would like people to know that their children would be more than welcome at Chisago as everyone there is open to "newbies" and are ready to accept them as if they had been there from the start. I myself was given a good chance of making a life for myself outside of highschool in my new life as a college freshman. I am glad I was able to grow up in a connected community with understanding and the insurance that I was going to succeed. Hopefully, in the future, there will be even more opportunities for students no matter the grade to do whatever they please but get the support they need to achieve it.
What I liked about Chisago Lakes High School was meeting some pretty great friends as well as some very nice teachers. What they lacked in, they made up for in the atmosphere. The classes were nice, the education that was handed to us was fairly challenging, and the teachers were with you every step of the way. Of course some students were bad eggs but at the end of the day, you still feel that accomplishment of graduating here.
