During my time at Chugiak high school I made a lot of friends with not just students but teachers and faculty too. Every teacher, councilor, and principal has your best interest at heart and are always looking for ways to help you succeed. They offer really good and fun learning courses such as oceanography and business marketing which were two of my favorite classes. I always had help from the staff if they thought something was wrong and they made sure I graduated without any problems. In my opinion Chugiak high school was a great place to get my high school diploma.

I really enjoyed some of my classes. My AP World teacher was excellent! She was very engaging and passionate about her job. Almost everbody passed the AP test with flying colors! Our school has a phenomenal sports program. We are always placing high. However, there are lots of problems with drugs, vandalism, and shooting threats at our school, which really affects overall spirit and attitude towards education. I would love to see this solved.
This school is by far the best the teachers and the staff are all here to help us succeed in our day to day activities at Chugiak High school, you just need to get out there and ask for help if you need it they are all willing to help each and everyone of us. I'm a senior currently attending the Teachers are so nice and one of them has helped me through thick and thin when I needed her the most she helped me move on and get to where I needed to be and the best I can be so did the other teachers that have taught me over the years. Especially in math, I needed the help I could get my math Teacher made sense and went slow in the meanings of what we needed to learn in each lesson that we had everyday she was there to help all of us in the class. So yes I had a good time here :)
