Chatham County Schools Reviews

Chatham county has employed very wonderful teachers, however the resources provided make it hard for all of the teachers to obtain what they need or want for classroom activities. Sports teams and other after school activities are generally pretty fun and involve a lot of the school.

I really like Chatham County Schools, Bonlee and Chatham Central in particular because that's where I attended school. Chatham County Schools are such great schools because the people are so friendly and are always willing to help you in any way they can. However, as a conservative I highly disagree with how the school board remained neutral during a Chatham Central graduation a few years back. I think that being a school board member they should have stood up for whatever they believed in and they should have to remain neutral in a situation like that.
Chatham County Schools have a diverse curriculum and population. Chatham Central High School is a small, rural school where everyone knows you and teachers take time to "know" you. Online classes are available for more options and they offer a dual program with Central Carolina Community College. CCHS counselor is amazing with college help and scholarship information.
