Chesapeake Public Schools Reviews

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.

Being in the Chesapeake for all twelve of my grade years, I have certainly appreciated the education that I was provided with. Compared to other school systems in the area, I am proud to say Chesapeake Public Schools is the very best. From teaching to resources to the facilities, CPS has superior tools and resources for students to learn. Although, I brag about the quality education I am grateful that was provided to me, I do have suggestions to improve the quality of education. First I recommend that unlike my school, Grassfield, being the first to receive resources, that all schools receive them at the same time. Next, I think that the 90 minute 1 semester format should be reconsidered. Material is often rushed through without grasping a true education and causes many students to fail. I think these small changes in CPS can help make it a better school system.
I think that overall Chesapeake Public Schools was a decent school district. There was a variety of teachers and administration, you always have some that seem as though they didn’t really care for their job and some that went above and beyond but it seemed as though the majority of them cared for their students and tried do well by them. There were plenty of opportunities for students to get involved in clubs, sports, and the arts. The facilities and resources were modernized and well kept. Safety measures were well planned out for student safety. The student body was diverse and as students we were taught to be understanding and appreciative of everyone and their background.
