Cheshire Public Schools Reviews
I love Cheshire Public Schools. I am so grateful to have been raised in such a motivated and dedicated school system. What has stuck out to me are the teachers and how much they care about students. They truly go the extra mile- staying after school to offer review sessions, planning interactive activities to help learn material, and always are willing to talk one on one, whether it be a personal issue or academic issue. To improve the school, specifically Cheshire High School, I would have a better system to hear student input. I feel as though administration would value our (the students) thoughts and opinions about how the school is running. Additionally, there could be more hands on college preparation. While the school does a great job preparing for college in junior year, more could be done to help students during their senior year, as well as education about careers/majors in junior and senior year, rather than as underclassmen.
Intensive curriculum that properly prepares students for college. Academics seem challenging and overwhelming at times, but upon arrival to college, the academics were easier than that of the Cheshire Public Schools.
Overall after my four years here I feel prepared for college, however I can't wait to leave. The demographics are pretty horrible, with easily over 70% of the population being white. I constantly complain about my peers because many are immature, addicted to technology, and don't know how to be unique. The administration constantly challenges the creativity of individuals and clubs by saying something is distracting or by tightening rules/focusing on things that don't matter. Teachers are expected to foster good grades, so when a teacher consistently has students with Bs or Cs, he or she is whipped into shape by the administration. Everyone doesn't deserve an A, it's a difficult grade to achieve, but all they care about is how the school looks on the outside. I miss Dr. Florio.
