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!

My experience within the Chelsea Public School system was very difficult but a learning experience. I never had an issue with any students nor with the teachers, the Chelsea Public schools is a free for all students. Their very accepting to all students from different backgrounds and culture which means its a very diverse school. Although their are a few tweaks that should be fixed in the school like more discipline and administration caring more about their students future rather than second guessing themselves believing that what their doing now currently is helping students when it's really not.
I love that we the students academically have so many opportunities. Chelsea High offers us a variety of amazing classes that can right of the bat set the students up for success or put us a step ahead from everyone else. We have access to honors, AP, and college classes. These classes not only challenge us but they also allow us to earn college credit while in high school for free. Although I love my school I would like change how our school focus more on spending money on unnecessary things the school needs than spending it on teachers to get more supplies for us or our school sports team.
