Staff here is incredibly rude! I got in trouble today for wearing short top over long tank top and they yelled at me to go and change into my PE clothes. They should have politely asked me to go and change! Overall, I can't wait to be an 8th grader next year.
My daughter transfered to LeyVa from Chaboya because both of us did not like it there. It is a good school and all, but the teachers give too much work and my daughter always missed soccer practice due to too much homework. She almost got kicked off her team. So she is at LeyVa now and she loves it there. So happy we transfered.
Teachers don't teach well. Parents in the area are way too competitive. The staff is too rude. The 8th/7th grad basketball coach who also teaches (he basically talks on the phone the whole time and is very lazy) P.E. is incredibly rude, much like the staff. The school is very unsanitary. Students are try undisciplined. But other than that, the school is great. I used to go to this school and I would recommend going to Quimby if you want a more enjoyable life while still having good academics and better athletics.
Really good school, i would give it a five except the office staff are incredibly rude, one time I went to go pick up my lunch and the said wow it's been here so long and stinkin up our office
Overall Chaboya is great but short of diversification. Chaboya parents cares more about academic and teachers are so so. Maybe Quimby is better choice, whose academic is also great, and Quimby is much better at sports and maybe Math.
Chaboya students are heavy burden with too many homeworks, and parents need too many time to help kids at homework. School should be encouraged to pay more attention at sports that junior students most needed in their lives.
Chaboya Middle School is the best school there is! They do so many fun activity to get the kids active & working as a team like for instant Olympic day (where every home room is a country & they work together to win metals and earn a plaque for the class) or just the every week spirit activity. Even though we have our fun and game there's also education. The teacher are very nice & they are always there when you need a little extra help. They make learning fun for them and everyone else. The staff there is always helpful and fun to be around. (:
I LOVE CHABOYA!!!! I am currently an 8th grader. When I came in 7th grade, I was a nervous little 6th grader but Chaboya has made we more confident. I took all of the honors classes this year and last year... 7th Grade: Honors/GATE Science and Algebra 1 8th Grade: Honors/GATE Science, Geometry, Honors English The honors classes are much more challenging. ALL of the teachers at Chaboya are wonderful...They motivate you and inspire you to do your best. HOWEVER, the office staff is a little rude. I have made plenty of friends (the kids are friendly) and I know these friendships will last for life. Half of the school is in the Honors Society so we are REALLY smart people. I am graduating this June and I don't want to leave!!! If you attend CMS, you will have the best middle school experience GUARANTEED... However, the school is full of cliques and a competition to be "cool" and "fashionable." Sometimes it can be overwhelming to try to fit in.... BUT nevertheless, you will never regret attending Chaboya!
This School Is The Best School There Is Because Of The Great Teachers And The Great Staff
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.
Great school admin, has website with daily homework scheduling for students (& hence info for parents) is 1st rate. My son was getting B's in elementary school & now getting A's primarily due to this tool(minimize miscommunication on homework, projects and assignments) . Also help students/parents/teachers contacting with one another instantly
Chaboya is an excellent school to be in! they have the best electives and afterschool programs! I am currently an 8th grader, and will miss this school when I graduate. The food are delicious and staff members are so helpful! Everyone is so nice.
Chaboya is an absolutely awesome middle school. I just graduated from Chaboya and I'm really going to miss it. During my two years there, I believe I have grown strong to be more independent than I ever was before. Friends and staff are what keep the school in such great condition. Love you Chaboya!
Its a wonderful school. My sister graduated from CMS about 2 years ago and I am going to graduate this year. The band teacher, Mrs. Colbert, is EXCELLENT! We win everytime because of her wonderful choreography. It's a great school. GO COLTS!
My daughter transitioned beautifully from Silver Oak Elementary school to Chaboya. The school has done a great job of placing students into advanced math. The teachers and administrators have addressed all concerns I have had. Overall, very happy with this school.
At Chaboya, I am an 8th grader. Classes I take are Honors Language Arts, Leadership, Advanced Algebra, and GATE science. Teachers are very interactive and know each student well. Chaboya offers ample electives including band, choir, leadership, life skills, more and also provides advanced classes in math and language arts, and offers GATE science. Leadership is a program I am very fortunate to have participated in this year. Students who participate in this are able to work at their school in the student store, where drinks and food can be purchased by their peers and themselves, and along with other activities, they have the privilege to decorate and plan dances. People are friendly, and teachers prepare you for high school. Many people at Chaboya apply to private high school and former students have gone to schools such as Mitty, Notre Dame, Bellarmine, Presentation, St. Francis, and Valley Christian. Go Colts!
Chaboya Midle school is an awesome school with plenty of ways for the parents to get involved with the school. I am currently an eighth grader at Chaboya. All the wonderful teachers use special teaching techniques so we are prepared for high school and the rest of our lives with unique qualities. Our campus is kept clean, we have a wide variety of electives and extra curriculur activities, and everybody is nice to each other. I couldn't have asked for a better middle school.
Chaboya is a excllent school.I am currently a 7th gradr there and the teachers are friendly and we are challenged not overworked.
i like the school and the extracurricular activities, but i think the kids are way overworked.
To the parent said about your daughter did not like the students at Chaboya. I also want to tell a little about my two sons transfer last year. Both of them were in the same situation as yours. I know sometime it is kind of sad to be treated that way, but put in a more positive way, like my son, he said he has more time to think about his future....what he want to be...what is he good at to make his future more happy and successful. For this year, my younger son is eight grade and he like it alots more than last year...more friends, more familiar with teach, more familiar around the campus. Don't give up, give her more support and positive feedback.
