Chapel Hill High School fosters an extremely safe and encouraging learning environment for students of all backgrounds. The majority of the teachers here are supportive and are extremely skilled at their respective subjects. The school is by far one of the best public college preparatory schools in the country, with one of the highest average SAT scores for public schools. The student body is also extremely supportive of each other, bullying is infrequent and everyone helps each other out. The only downsides to this school is the 60 year old building, with mold and constantly breaking air conditioners and heaters. The administration has also been mishandling situations and causing the best teachers to leave for other schools. Overall, the school has been a great experience, and the only thing holding it back from 5 stars is the crumbling infrastructure of the buildings and the administration.
Review Your School
I like that Chapel Hill High School has an abundance of student clubs and activities to participate in, though I wish it had an agricultural program so that students can participate in FFA. I like that my school offers many CTE classes and the AP classes are open to anyone. However, I feel that the academic cultures of Chapel Hill High and East are very competitive. Students are encouraged to take as many honors and AP classes as they can fit into their schedules. Over-stress and ultra- heavy course loads are encouraged at my school. Also, the school needs new buildings because there is mold.
I have had an overall good experience in the CHCCS district. Some of the things i love about this district are the high expectations of the teachers, the great academics, and the resource accessibility that we have as students. If i had to change one thing i would add more teachers of color given the CHCCS district is predominantly white. This would help the students of color by giving them an outlet that can relate to them.
