Lawton Chiles High School 1

The administration is a joke. Front office folks seem disinterest at interactions with parents and/or student. It always seem they are too busy or doesn't have time for you. Rules and regulations are not apply consistently. At least you can pretend that you are half-interested in your job.

The administration is unnecessarily rude and unfriendly. They do not go out of their way to help the students.

Those working in the front office are of little to no help to parents and students.

Chiles High School has a large population which makes it hard to have consistent structure. Dress code violations abound and teacher inconsistency makes it difficult for students to adapt. Some teachers are ridiculously strict and other extremely loose. The office staff doesn't create a warm atmosphere and is somewhat intimidating when you want to interact personally - email and phone calls are better received. The school is achievement driven and sets high academic standards so motivated students will excel if they make good choices and pick the competent teachers. There seem to be lots of cliques (typical of most high schools) and because it is so large, that can make it tough on "new to the area" students.

Can I give this so-called school zero stars? At Chiles, you're either a favorite or an outcast. If you are the latter, then you will not benefit from anything this school might offer.

The School should be held accountable for the many students that act out inappropriately. There are way too many trouble making kids that obvsiously are school for other reasons than to learn. Other committed students suffer as there is too much profanity, contraband and skipping of classes.

Too many spoiled, trouble-making kids are allowed to act out here. It's unfair to the ones who want to do well and actually learn/succeed. I substituted here as a teacher and couldn't believe the horrible behavior that is tolerated. The teacher's grade books were full of entries about the same kids I had problems with acting out constantly. Why are they still in this school?! Put them in alternative high schools and stop them from interfering with the other students' education.

Office staff is unfriendly, intimidating, and uninterested in students (and parents to!). Most teachers are helpful and great w/ communication. I've found that some coaches who are teachers are usually the worst. They are mainly focused on their sport and not on the kids. ESE students receive support, but as a parent, you have to stay on top of things, or they will be overlooked.
