Chambersburg Area School District Reviews

Cashs is a one of a kind school. It poses a great environment for all students, regardless of learning pace and ability. There are many different classes and levels of challenge to choose from, allowing its students to have a wide range of options to choose from when it comes to their studies. The teachers are extremely good at preparing students for not only their Senior year, but they also give the students the necessary tools for heading into college. All of the teachers care 110% about each and every one of their students and try to make it the best possible place to learn. The staff there are so nice and do their best to make everyone in the school feel as safe as possible. I have acquired so much knowledge through my studies, learned many useful life lessons, and made some of the best of friends I will ever had. There really is no other high school like it. Once a Trojan, always a Trojan.

I like that the Chambersburg School District is a diverse district, with kids from all different backgrounds and experiences attending it. It is a mostly rural community and it has options for students as they enter high school. There is both a high school and a career magnet school, and the students are able to choose which to attend based on their personal needs or their goals for their future. This option opens up a a lot of opportunities to the students and allows for each individual to feel like they have a hand in their own education. I know of many students that are able to learn more effectively and feel comfortable in a larger school. There are also students who learn better through smaller classes and specialized learning, and enjoy the tight-knit friendships they create through being around the same peers every class. Overall, this district's ability to give the students a choice in their educations creates invaluable experiences and well rounded graduates.
I just moved to Chambersburg Area School District last year. Chambersburg is a great school with teachers who want to help you succeed. There is so much diversity in this school and I feel that is what makes the school very unique. The students here are also very involved with clubs, sports, student sections, and school spirit. Also, I can friendly to new faces. There were many times students offered help when I first moved here and it made me feel very welcomed. Overall, there isn't many changes I would like to see in the school it is overall a great place to be.
