My Chesterfield school has some great, encouraging teachers who love what they do and it shows in the expectations they put of us to prepare for college. School spirit is at an all time high this year, with each sport supporting other teams during off seasons. Friday night football games where the student section has a theme was so much fun and brought us all together. The diversity in my area has really prepared me for college and the career world where not everyone is the same or has the same thought process. The one thing I could see that needs significant change is for administration to bring in technology to assist with different processes. Everything that a senior would need for college applications or resources, should be accessed from the school website. Counseling forms should also be available online for atleast access, if not submission as well. The day of color coded printed forms has gone by. Let us all jump into the 21st Century with a smile. Go Knights!

The administration and leadership I Chesterfield is wonderful. They are supportive and encouraging. The academics and achievements are strong and innovative, their vision and growth should be an example for all schools to promote out-of-the-box thinking. Their design for excellence program is just an example of the next stage of learning that should be adapted throughout the country!
My experience with chesterfield county school was a battle that I overcame! With me moving from an inner city school to a county school I had a lot of adjustments to get use to! One being the work load of course. With me coming from an inner city school, teachers often "rewarded" you for good behavior because they weren't used to seeing children that behaved and were welling to learn; with that being said I felt as though I wasn't being pushed to my full potential with me being in an inner city school but that all changed when I went to a school in Chesterfield county. Well for one, the behavior of the students were drastically different! The lessons were taught with more clarity and made it easy to be more comprehensive! I would just like to thank chesterfield county and teachers who have helped me move on to the next chapter in life!
