Chautauqua Lake Central School District Reviews

I liked some of the staff, however Chautauqua Lake is a school centralized around self-recognition and "the look of the school". Basically if you don't do sports, or represent the school enough to be in the paper, your opinion won't be valued. A lot of the higher positioned staff underestimate the qualities and abilities of their students. Their education is sometimes held too high above the students heads. As far as representation and the student body, there is a Student Administration, but don't think you'll be able to go in there and see the changes you're requesting. Chautauqua Lake is really good at "allowing" you to have a voice and make your own decisions to "better your education" but under their rules and of course approval from either the principal or the superintendent, who could care less about the students unless they're successful in sports.

Chautauqua Lake is a small school so you get individual attention. Despite being so small there are many opportunities available to students to take a diverse number of academic classes - through distance learning, RIT (Project Lead the Way), AP, and JCC.

Chautauqua Lake could improve the schedule of classes by trying to be creative to accommodate all of the various class requests of students. Students should not have to make tough decisions about courses they want to take.
Chautauqua lake does a great job with mentally preparing students for the college life. However academically, it’s a system where often their students are left at a Disadvantage
