What I love about Chelsea public schools is how much the Administration cares for the students success at Chelsea public schools. We have so many options to participate in during after school schools like clubs, organizations and sports. The teachers holds us to high expectations and what us to do good in their classes. The food could be better but thats something that is difficult to change so I am not worried about that. The school system is very diverse not everyone is the same race. One thing that could be better is parent involvement because I feel that if the student's parents are involved at the school, the student will do much better at school knowing that their parent cares about their education.

The school district delivers a lot of support to its students, making sure that each one has a chance to walk across the stage at graduation. Many may choose to go to college, some may choose to go do a certificate program, and others may find a unique way to make it, with the help and loving support of the faculty and staff at the Chelsea Public School district. This is more prominent when the district has the ability to be in contact with colleges and other organizations from the historical city of Boston, Massachusetts, where leaders and other professionals can come and inspire the minds of young learners.
While attending Chelsea High School, I had many opportunities that I wouldn't have had anywhere else. Their use of both athletics and technical college is far beyond anything I ever realized until attending. There are many clubs and organizations that support students both emotionally and physically, and the culture of learning surrounding the staff is one that is hard to top. Hard to leave this place!
