I feel that the school is very responsible. It focuses on the academic aspect of student learning and keep students safe. Chapel Hill also is great programs that people who can get involved in. We can get in to charities, sports, the arts, and etc. Even though this school is pretty good, it really doesn't make the social interaction an important part of the school. Eat even though everyone can get their group of people to hang out with, but it is not encouraged to go out there and meet new people. That is how I feel about you up with you high school.

I'm a freshman at Chapel Hill, and I think it's great. I'm in the AP magnet program. Not only is this school fun, but its involving. I've been in The !A Play, French Honor Society, sports, tutoring (due to absences), Gospel Choir,, and I'm planning on doing even more. I've moved around just about every year of my life, and this school, by far, has some of the best discipline I've ever seen in my entire life. We did a class activity where we rated our school and the average overall rating was an outstanding 8 (including those who rated like 1 just because). Anyone who doesn't like this school is probably basing it off one particular experience (meaning they messed themselves up). As long as you pull your weight, you'll do great and will love thus school just as much as I do.

Though this school has a very struck dress code I still believe it is a very good school. In our math class we rated our school on a 1-10 number line and most people rated the school in the 6-10 range which is high.

I am currently a freshman at Chapel Hill and I m enrolled in the AP Magnet program that is new to our school this year. The program allows freshman to take AP courses and later start dual enrollment to get college credit. If you ll be going to Chapel Hill anytime soon, I d recommend taking advantage of this program and what it offers. Overall the school is a great school; the teachers provide tutoring before and after school for students who might need a little extra help, and where academics is concerned, I d say our school is one of the best in the county. Our sports programs are decent. Our football team is not the greatest (we re probably the worst), but every other sports team is doing really well. There are clubs and activities that you can join and benefit from. Chapel Hill is a good school.

Being a student at CHHS I know the atmosphere here is more like that of a middle school instead of a highschool. The dress code is rather strict for students that are 14-18, especially in comparison to the county's other schools. My middle school actually had the same dress code (no holes above the knee, no uncovered shoulders, three-inch skirt rule, etc.). The school is strict and i feel the student body would enjoy their time much more if the school toned down a bit. The teaching staff is a saving grace of CHHS. You can tell that they care about their students and our grades and futures. Other than dress code and the teachers, their is lunch which I don't particularly care for, they don't have halal, kosher, nor certified organic foods either (a downer). But they do serve salad as an alternative to non-carnivorous students. In the vending machines however; you will only find sugar-free, fat-free, extremely falsified-health-conscious snacks. Regarding parental involvement, I'm not sure about how active the PTA is, and clubs, there is a vary of clubs for different students. Overall, anyone should send their child here if you're looking for a focused on education for them.

Chapel Hill High School is a true school of excellence. With its comprehensive curriculum and its constant drive to be the best, this is truly a school to be proud of. All of the teachers and staff work their hardest to ensure the best learning environment for our students. Chapel Hill exhibits a amazing level of concern and involvement in our lives. Chapel Hill takes pride in their fine arts and sports in a manner of respect and great support. And I am honored to call myself a Panther!

Chapel Hill High School is a great academic school that is multicultural and has a great academic record. The teachers and students strive for excellence everyday in and out of the classroom. However i think some of the rules are a bit over the top, for instance no phones allowed until 3:40. None the less this is a school of the best getting better.

chapel hill high school is pretty fantastic. Most of the teachers get very envovled with their teachings and make sure to interact with students. They care for your grade and try to benefit you in every way possible. Which means make up tests are a huge plus! School food honestly isn't all that bad and the salads are excellent. This school also provides many clubs and organization it kinda hard to not to fit in somewhere. You always feel a part of something. Not only is it fun but allows you great advantages when applying to colleges!! overall this school is perfect for my academic needs.

Chapel Hill High School is definitely the best choice of all the high schools in Douglas County. I currently am a student here and I am a freshman. I originally thought that this school was going to have super easy classes. But truly our teachers try to challenge us as much as possible. CHHS offers AP classes and honors classes. Chapel Hill's athletic programs and clubs offer a variety of choices to find the activity perfect for you! I am currently on the swim team and involved in HOSA (Health Occupation Students of America). Our administration provides a safe and healthy learning environment as well. CHHS also has a AP Magnet Program which offers students from everywhere to come to Chapel Hill and participate in our AP classes. CHHS will for sure be the perfect choice for every student!

CHHS is not the best school, but it's not the worst. Administration is really strict on dress code. Our football team is officially the worst team in Douglas County. However, it is a learning environment and has plenty of productive clubs an opportunities. It still feels like a prison. Lunch is basic, but edible; I recommend bringing your own lunch. Bus routes could be changed because from riding my own bus, I know they have routes that make them go in circles and waste time. I am currently a freshman and the school is ok simply because my friends go here. I personally do not like all the teachers because most of them sit around, eat, put a slide on the screen and tell you to copy it. Next day in class there is a test. No elaboration or explanation on the notes.

I'm currently a freshmen here at Chapel Hill and so far it's been really enjoyable. Chapel Hill provides a variety of sports and clubs to choose from such as softball, volleyball, swimming, tennis and much more. The teaching staff here at Chapel Hill is very supportive and they're always here to make sure you understand what you're learning whether it's before or after school, because they care about you and your education. Here at Chapel Hill you have the opportunity to sign up for AP classes and earn college credit. Chapel hill not only provides you with an amazing high school experience it also prepares you for college. Chapel Hill is friendly and organized learning environment where I can strive to be the best that I can be. If you had to choose a school, I would definitely recommend Chapel Hill High School.

I am a freshman here at Chapel Hill and in my short time at the school there have been several pros and cons I have seen. From a student's POV they would say the dress code is very strict because CHHS is the only school in DCSS that makes males tuck in their shirts, but to be honest it isn't that bad. Statistics show that many people are very complementary of kids behavior and appearance at CHHS. Next, the lunch quality was a huge jump from middle school. I was formerly a Yeager Mustang, and brought my lunch to school every day of the year. I haven't brought my lunch one time this school year because the food is fairly good. Go ahead and brag about how good ALX is but check the CCRPI please. Thank you and GO PANTHERS!

I'm currently a freshman at Chapel Hill High School. This is actually my first year at a public school since I have attended private schools basically throughout my entire life. I'm a straight A student with good conduct and for that reason, I was scared that I'd be an outsider. I was prepared to see fights everywhere, but that wasn't the case, which was amazing to know. On the other hand when I first moved here, I was far too excited to stop wearing uniforms, however I didn't think that CHHS would have strict guidelines on their dress code, but I'm quite happy that they do. It definitely prevents many teenagers from dressing inappropriately since it is a school. I'm also thankful for being involved in many clubs such as HOSA, Key Club, and FBLA. I haven't played any sports for CHHS yet, but they definitely have good, competitive teams. As far the school staff, they're alright. That being said, I have extremely high standards, but for a public school, CHHS meets most of them. Overall CHHS is a good school, but it could honestly improve in food and making their classes more challenging.

I am currently a freshmen at Chapel Hill High School, and my experience so far in the year has surely been an enjoyable one. The teachers are quite supportive and care about my education, which shocked me at first. If I do no understand a concept, they won't quit until I know what to do. I like the environment and the amount of extracurricular activities one can participate in. The only downside to attending this school is sports. From what I have seen and heard about, some of the sports teams here aren't so great. But overall, I would highly recommend this school for a student looking for a regular high school experience!

Right now I am a freshman at CHHS. It's a great school with many great extra-curricular classes like Drafting and ROTC. You can sign for AP classes to get college credits, as well as honors classes. If you are struggling in a class, they also provide classes that take a slow approach to learning to make sure that you truly understand everything. You have many options for sports with Chapel Hill's great sports programs such as football, swimming and volleyball. I came to Chapel Hill from a small school called Brighten Academy which had trailers for classrooms and was probably a smaller school than the CHHS football field. I expected to be overwhelmed since I would be entering such a large school, but I wasn't. On the first day of school, Seniors and Staff told me where each of my classes were. It is a very friendly environment with great teachers and administrators. If anyone asks me where they should send their child, I would recommend Chapel Hill High School.

I love this school. I knew from the very start that this was going to be a great academic school. There are no problems that I have encountered with this school. I already know that in the future when I am in college, I will look back to these days and realize that this school, is what helped me most in college. This school can prepare a student for college unlike any other school. They have teachers that make sure you understand exactly what you are learning. The administrators take care of everything they need to take care of. If there is any school I'd recommend to attend, it's Chapel Hill High School.

I am a student at chapel hill , my experience has been fine but could be a lot better. The dress code is very strict for it to be a public high school. Also the administrators do tend to go for the athletes more as well as the teaching staff, if your an athlete you have to have tough skin to go here. They look for every single thing you do wrong and even if you've done nothing they still try to find something. If your not an athlete the school is fine, the sports are okay, and the food is normal

I am a current Freshman at Chapel Hill High School and I love it. The key to having a great experience at CHHS is to be involved. We offer a wonderful fine arts programs, a great drama department, and a lot of fun clubs. You are offered many different classes to choose from at CHHS. Our school has just been recognized as the AP school for the county. That gives a lot of students opportunities to take classes at our great school. We also have an amazing sports program. Volleyball made it to the state playoffs, football made it to playoffs, softball had one of the best years ever, XC did great, swimming has just started and they are doing amazing, basketball has started out with a win, and soccer had done great in the past. Chapel Hill is an over all great school, their is something for everyone to enjoy and have fun with. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone. I can honestly say that I have had a GREAT experience at Chapel Hill.

My son is a 10th grader at Chapel Hill. He transferred in from another high school. He has taken honors courses, etc and has found the rigor to be appropriate. He's now been recommended for AP courses next year. He got involved in FBLA, NJROTC and the golf team. I'm part of the parent support groups for two of these activities. I believe that is part of his success--parental involvement. I've come to know the teachers and principal and even the Sherriffs to be friendly, concerned and very engaged. We've traveled around the world in the military and can say CHHS is a great school. He's been to private schools too. Only one teacher I've dealt with has seemed indifferent. Over time she even came around. Overall- I think we've made a good choice in sending him to CHHS versus private school.

I have 3 children that attend Chapel Hill High School. In the 2 plus years that I have been dealing with Chapel Hill I feel the School transitions very quickly. I mean that in a good and bad way. There Teachers have changed quite a bit in a short time but overall the quality of teaching hasn't transitioned much which is good. They are pretty decent in calling but for some reason as many times as my Wife and I have updated the phone numbers they keep dialing the wrong numbers. My oldest son which has been a challenge to deal with because of his temper and don't care attitude at times has clearly reached the threshold with teachers and administration and yes it surely shows. As for the other two the have had a pretty enjoyable time while it lasted due to the rezoning of properties around the area my kids have been forced to attend a new school known as Manchester. At this point I would not even bother to vent about the issue because at the end of the day it might actually be a good thing that happened at a strange time. To end this review I will say there are many others to chose from do extensive research.

This is our family's first year in Douglasville. we are African-Americans that moved here from New York and we adore Douglasville. Our family comes from a long line of educated individuals and we were empressed with the educational curriculum at CCHS and it's fully engaged teaching staff. the programs at CHHS are phenomenal and are focused on the "whole child". The strict discipline provide the structure our children need in high school. What a great school!

This is similar to the experience we had with our son. We didn't know he was failing until late in the term. The teacher I referred to in my posting dated 4/29/09 was failing to input grades into the Portal system which when used correctly is an excellent tool for parents. However, when you have a teacher that is too busy to do her job (she actually told the class she had better things to do) and a principal that backs his teacher regardless of the facts then it is of no use. When she did post grades, many times they were inaccurate. My son had work returned to him which had been graded yet she had input a zero into Portal. I can only hope that with enough complaints about this teacher that the principal will finally have to face facts and discipline her.

We moved here this yr and the research my husband did, didn't add up to the end results.The teacher had very poor communication skills, which contributed to a failing grade. To the best of my knowledge the teacher wasn't disciplined. We sent emails,called and visited the school! They had bridges (tutoring) and said that he couldn't join because his grade at the time wasn't failing. But on his progress report and online history, he was failing. They denied our child the right to pass the class. He had a lot of missing work! Was told he could go to tutoring but he couldn't participate with the tutoring class! That's like your invited to a party but you cant sit at the table with the other kids, you have to sit facing the wall and you cant play either. After reading the reviews,involving the higher ups wouldn't make a differance.

I would like to start off by addressing some of the reviews, I have two children attending CHHS one is a sophmore and one a junior as far as fights breaking out in school and the administration not handling them they are handling them in my opinion to the best of their ability, maybe we as parents should stop blaming the school system for fights/our childrens behavior for it is all of us as parents that are responsible for raising our children and seeing to it they respect others. I feel the curriculum is set by the county to challange all children not just AP now I do have to admit my junior is taking honor's classes but her regular classes are just as challanging. If you feel your child isn't challange then get involved and have his/her classes changed to more challenging ones.

My oldest is a Senior at CHHS and I also have a freshman this year. My children haven't encountered any problems other than the normal that go on at every other school. If your child is interested in learing then CHHS is a great place for them to do so. My children are both honors students who excel in and out of the classroom. If you check the test scores, CHHS is in 1st place in our county. The middle school (CHMS) is also in 1st place in test scores, despite our diversity. I think it is the best school for grades, diversity, and sports in the whole county!!

CHHS does not challenge our children unless the child is enrolled in AP classes. Very disappointed overall. Are the children safe? Fights at the school are unacceptable, need the administration to get involved and monitor the hallways and bathrooms closely. If a parent comes up to the school they should be treated with respect, instead of being treated as if you are a student which they aren't treated with respect. As stated by the previous rater, the school is located in a very economical strong area, why is the adminstration 'giving up'?

Chapel Hill High school and Middle school has been a great disappointment. Both schools are located in a very economical strong, very diverse area, and have attracted great teachers from around the world. The really good teachers usually leave with in 6 months. Both schools have the resources and great potential but just need to be up under better management. Overcrowding is very minor compared to Cobb and Gwinnett schools who still seem to be able to put education first. I never thought I would recommend it but you can get a better education at a private school or Atlanta school now days.

As a ninth grade student at Chapel Hill, I feel that it has provided me with a great environment that is safe and friendly. The staff is great and also very helpful. They are always willing to provide you with advice or anything important that you need to be dealt with. For me, it does not feel like I just entered this school. It seems as if I have been here for a while and have been acquainted with everyone for at least three years. I enjoy coming to school every morning and greeting the familiar faces of such content principals! My school has offered me so much. There are many other great qualities about Chapel Hill, and I thank everyone who has made my experience a good one!

My son's grades are good and he actually said that the school is boring because nothing happens. I am glad that the school is not a circus. I do hope that they build another high school because it is getting crowded. I do hope that race won't become an issue because the world is a diverse place, and so children need to interact with all people.

I disagree with several of these reviews, the school is great, provided your child wants to learn, teachers are great, and are very nice if you are nice to them. The school is overcrowded in lower classes, but this will change soon, the county is adding another high school to take kids away from the school. I feel safe at the school. We got a new principal, he's strict, but is definitely trying to improve the school, he's implemented several new programs. The school has very few classes beyond the core classes, no home ec.; that kind of stuff. We have the main extracurriculars, the sports, band, art, etc. The ones we have are great though.

I am a graduate of the class of 2003. I thought CHHS was a great school and I was given many great opportunities to expand my education outside it's doors. I thought that the teachers and staff were very involved with the students and were always there for us. The only real negative thing I have to say for the school, is that sometimes the staff got a little childish when dealing with several issues. I started going to this school the first year it was opened and I couldn't think of a better school to go to. I always heard people talk very highly of the students that attended CHHS and I was proud to be a part of that category. Overall, I feel that I went to the best high school in the county.

Graduate of CHHS c/o 2003. Though we were the first full graduating class it was a great school. I was there in 1999 when it first opened. Since I've graduated I heard the school has done a lot of expansion which is good because the community is growing in that area. The teachers I had were awesome. One big plus I will give is the foreign language department. I took French and I had a blast. The teachers were very knowledgeable and you always felt like you were learning more than just the language. Every school has its general problems but overall its a good school.

Both my children are graduating from this school. You hear so much about it. The lack of information given that parents need to know is... Most parents are in the upper middle class to high class income. The staff seems worried about always raising money and not what they should be worried about. It is very political. Never hear from the principal Both my kids are getting good grades, but i am concerned since they never study. Is this preparing them for the real world? I am not convinced. I am active in my children's learning - i suggest you do the same at this school. Things can get out of hand quickly.

My son is a senior at this school and makes almost all A's. The school has quite a few good points but it still runs like a new school. It's almost like they don't have everything in place and are still waiting. The amount of material they cover is still the same as when this school system was on quarters but now they are on semesters, so they are loosing a quarters worth of work. They also are on block scheduling so the classes are twice as long. The problem is they are still doing the same amount of work as if the classes were only an hour long. I would say for the average student it is to easy and does not challenge them enough. This school is adding to the problem we have with the young people in this country becoming lazier.

Academically This school rates well, but socially for my minority child I felt that she was descriminated against by fellow students and teachers. She and I understand that this is the real world and she is a better person for going through this. I do not condem the school or all of the teachers because there were great teachers there also who helped my daughter tremendously and made a great difference in her life. Overall Chapel Hill helped continue my daughters education.
