Chesapeake Public School system is a very resourceful. But there are somethings I would like to see change. Firstly, the amount of extra non- educational things they make the teachers do. The teacher all ready have so much to handle with SOL’s, finals, and just getting some one prepared to pass there class. Secondly the parking issue that has arised this year. I believe with every incoming class there will be more students and not enough parking spaces. When kids cross the busy road to get to school everyday, that is a problem. They should extend the parking lot. Especially because you have a stem program where people come from all over Chesapeake to come to Grassfield. They need some where to park. Besides these details Grassfield High School has done a lot of good thing for not only me but my fellow Grizzlies. And I’m proud!

Overall my experience at Chesapeake Public Schools has been fairly decent. The best asset the district has is the teaching staff. With only a few exceptions, all of my teachers have genuinely care about their students and their success going into college. I was fortunate enough to have been zoned for the most diverse high school in the district and learned a lot from my peers around me. All the clubs I have been in were well organized with great sponsors, but there were not very many choices at my school. I also played two sports, both with coaches who knew very little about the sport and how to develop their players' abilities. After many complaints from parents and players, nothing was done about the situation. I have always felt safe at school and my school has never lacked materials. All in all, I had a decent experience.
I love Chesapeake Public Schools! As a high school senior, I can say that I am very prepared for college. They have offered multiple Advanced Placement classes, and multiple other classes as well. The amount of clubs that were offered at Grassfield High School was amazing. I found my place in high school easily. I felt like the teachers really cared about me on a personal level, and cared about my education.
