Chelsea School District Reviews

One aspect I liked was how the administration and teachers cared about their students. The Why You Matter campaign that the faculty created helped students to see this. Through speeches and small groups faculty would express the love they had for all students and the importance we had to them. One thing that I disliked was the lack of diversity. Because of the community Chelsea is in, there are mostly wealthy white families. This creates an ignorance to others which is a disadvange when moving onto college. However, overall Chelsea is a wonderful school which gave me a pretty good high school experience.

Chelsea School District has a lot to offer. They have a program for everyone and that is rather refreshing. Unfourtantly though, Chelsea has an 'image' that they will do anything to protect. Bullying runs ramped throughout the schools and rather than being delt with properly, it is swept under the rug as to not have the community or any surrounding areas find out. It is really very sad. If you are a great football player though, this is the school for you. Athletics is put before anything else. Part of the all around problem, if you ask me.
Chelsea School Distirct is an overall great learning environment. It has an amazing staff and really great, well behaved students. I love attending Chelsea School District but I would love the lunches to be changed. They are not very good, and there isn't much to choose from. I would really like the staff to look more into the lunches and make some changes to make the food more appealing and taste better.
