Amount of homework: Don't know

This really depends on the teacher. Some give little, some give mass amounts. If your child takes AP and Honors classes, they will be busy, invest in coffee.

It is a very competitive school, especially in grades. Had my daughter attended any other high school in the district she would have been valedictorian - but Chiles has outstanding students!

As much as any school can, the school tries to. It is the parents who need some guidance here, (many are very wealthy and think their child is special and should be treated that way).

My son's sports team was allowed to vote on whether fellow student athletes were removed from the team for behavior unbecoming a member of the team. The coach gave them both sides of the story, the pros and cons of keeping a student on the team, and then let them choose. The boys kicked two players off their own team this way, knowing that it would affect their stats but also knowing that they stood up for what they believed in. The administration stood behind the boys and their decision.

Took honors courses and was well prepared for college. Many extra curricular programs. Only had one teacher who just couldn't teach well, but he had his heart on the students.

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.

Ladies in the front office always carry an attitude. There is noneed for them to be so brash

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.
