Our community is very involved with our school district. Parents and teachers go above and beyond with school activities and fundraisers that our schools put on for students and our community. They really focus on building our future careers and preparing students for their future. Every year in high school we would have a career fair and go around talking to different businesses and listen to them share about what they do.

My time in the Chariton Community School District was a pleasant one. I attended the schools in this district from kindergarten to the health grade. The school offers different offers different classes and works closely with Indian Hills Community College for a lot of of the classes we offer such, college classes, shop classes, and higher level science classes. My time at CHS was even more enjoyable because of the closeness of the community and how well the two work together.
Chariton High School provides a safe comfortable environment for learning. However, I believe that some of the teachers do not challenge the students enough.
