Chesterton Senior High School
25 Best Public High Schools in Indiana

Alum: Chesterton High School provided me with an extremely gratifying experience as a transfer student. Like many other schools the student body was distributed, but overall I feel that Chesterton allowed me to embrace being a new student and use it as an opportunity rather than feeling anxious. Academically, Chesterton was exceptional with college preparation, specifically in my field. Their STEM (Science Technology Engineering Mathematics) departments were phenomenal in preparing students for standardized testing and college workloads. There were a variety of college-level courses available which students could take at their own discretion and capabilities, and potentially receive college credit for them. Overall, I attribute most of my success during the first two years of college to Chesterton High School by helping me develop a strong work ethic, advanced communication skills, and proficient problem-solving skills.

What else can be said about this amazing community?
Let's start with the administration. This team of professionals is second to none. Led by Andrew Sherman at the time of the writing, we received much more than expected. At every stage of our child's time here from admission forward, we were met with courteous, friendly, and professional individuals. Paired with the teaching staff, this group of family-oriented professionals know how to make a family feel welcomed.
Speaking of the teachers, they all deserve awards! Though we only have one child in the lower school, we often interact with the children in other grades. Be it at a school function, philanthropic event, or social gathering outside of the school, we're constantly impressed by the heightened degree of intellect that these children display. This is a great example of how a child can progress when given the right environment to thrive, the teachers at GEMS World Academy Chicago create this environment...
