Chesapeake Public Schools Reviews

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!

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.
I attend Grassfield High School in the Chesapeake Public School district. Grassfield has provided me with a great education and a collaborative social environment allowing me to achieve my best work in class. The school is fantastic, in that, the social aspect and classroom environment feed off of each other to create a diverse learning environment. At Grassfield, students believe in pursuing knowledge for which I am extremely grateful for this.One thing I would change would be that I would make the school district have a better program for military students moving into the area. I am a military student and I moved to Chesapeake right as I was starting my sophomore year in high school. When I moved to the area, the district would not honor some of my credits from my past school. I found this frustrating as I was a straight A student who wanted to pursue harder courses.With a better program for military students, the quality of learning will increase.
