I think this school is wonderful. It offers diversity as well as wonderful aesthetic and music programs. The two things I'm not too happy about our the art programs grading policiesand lack of a football field. Those are district issues though, I suppose. I have had my expectations exceeded as far as teachers, staff and athletic programs.specifically the football and wrestling program.

CHS is a Golden Bell Award winner this year for its outstanding CTE program in architect and construction design. They have a 3-d printer and can verify construction plans by actually building working models. The City of Chico expects applicants to RPF to submit it plans to the high class in order to verify that their plans will work in the real world!

As a former student of Chico High I can read the review left on 6/19/2003 and say it's absolute rubbish and written by someone with a very limited understanding of education and educators and who perhaps like to defer their responsibilities to others. Chico High is the superior high school in Chico with a long and distinguished history of academic and athletic excellence. To add to the diversity there are a number of smaller learning communities within Chico High such as WEST and ACT that have unique and focused curriculum. In my four years there, all of my instructors were attentive, diligent and enthusiastic to work with the students in their respective subjects. Students were all treated and helped equally as well as individually given every opportunity for success and excellence. From the first-rate academia, to the stellar athletic program to the aesthetically beautiful campus with an incredibly history, Chico High stands out as a school that offers more possibilities for success and enrichment than any other high school in Chico.

A great school with great teachers(for the most part) and a lot to do around campass. I agree with 11/15/08, the parents in the earlery posted comments were just looking to blame the shcool.

I agree with the student who posted on 11-15-08. Chico HS is an award winning school with lots of diversity, opportunities and offers program curricular choices designed to meet the needs of all types of students. I have five children who graduated from CHS. All went on to college and graduated. Four went on to receive advanced, professional degrees, and have good jobs in their fields. The other started and now runs a very successful business. Chico High gave my children the life skills and educational tools they needed to do well, not only in college, but in their lives and careers as well.

I feel that the parents who formerly posted were probably misinformed and over protective of their children. Looking to blame the school. Chico High has countless opportunities to take advanced classes and succeed in different programs. And the general environment of student unity can't truly be rivaled anywhere else. If their students had such problems with the staff, they should have sought help from the counseling staff who is always more that willing to oblige most requests. As for pinpointing the school for having tenured teachers, I challenge you to find any other school without a similar problem. Chico High was a great home to me, and there are many more things to learn in that environment besides academics.

I hate going to this school it is run down, old and the teachers are not well 'smart'

I would not send my children to Chico High School. There is insufficient help for students who need additional help with subjects. There are more mediocre teachers at Chico High School than there are good teachers. A C minus to D plus overall. Chico High School needs to offer more elective in the career professions as well, The best thing they have is opportunity to apply for the college connection program with Butte College.

I have two children that just graduated from Chico High. They were in the top of the class, however, they still struggle to write any type of research paper. I feel the basics are just not taught in the Chico High School or Middle school system. Most of the teachers have been in the school for a long time and have tenure. This seems to contribute to the lack of quality teachers at the school. We also strugled with situations of sexual harassment from the teachers and PE personell. The princpals were for the most part ineffective and uninterested. I saw discrimination overall with a bias to only work with star students. The guidance counselors were misinformed for the most part about college requirements and unable to help most students in college applications or preparation. I would recommend private school in the city of Chico.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
