I just graduated from Chaboya, and while the school was DECENT, it was far from excellent or being significantly above average. First off, the school is very EASY. API scores are high, but the credit should be given to the higher achieving students. Don't get me wrong, some of the teachers I had were wonderful, but it was balanced by others who taught little and even lacked knowledge in the subject. More honors classes are needed, along with improving current ones as they are too easy, sometimes easier than regular classes. (I took all of them but geometry.) Homework is almost always minimal, even in honors (good for me, bad if you're a parent who cares or you like homework.) Elective choice is weak and classes lacks difficulty. Foreign language is NOT offered and should be(i.e. intro first year and the first high school course second year.) Sports program, run by teachers, is GREAT. Office is VERY rude, impatient, and unkind. Response to punishment can be understood if rude, but as reactions to simple questions, more should be expected. School is safe, and I was able to make excellent friends there, but many people try to hard to fit in and be "cool" and it gets annoying.
