I think it was an average school system but there definitely were flaws. I think I got a good education but the school and technology was outdated or not readily available for the students. I think the school system needs to start implementing useful ideas sooner, like maybe starting a language sooner. There are fanstatic teachers in chelmsford but you do come across some bad ones.

The teachers and staff are very helpful and responsive. The schools are quite safe, and the police are in close proximity to each of the schools, especially to both middle schools and the high school. There is less pressure on the students in this district in comparison to other schools nearby, which have a high suicide rate. There are many opportunities for students to get help for any reason. The high school has a school psychologist for any students seeking help.
Chelmsford High School is a community that welcomes everyone with open arms and gives them the same opportunity to earn an education. Staff members, including guidance counselors and deans will do whatever it takes to guide their students in the path that fits them personally. Along with providing a good education, the school provides a good amount of school activities that all grades can participate it such as the dodgeball tournament, spirit week, pep rally, and even the 24 Hour Relay. Chelmsford High gives back to the community in any and all possible ways.
