Chapel Hill High has a great administration. CHHS has great clubs and sports. The classes aren't that hard. The schools lunch is not that bad. I think Chapel Hill is the best school in Douglas County.

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.

i am curently a 9th grader at chapel hill high school and my expirience there has been good. the teachers are very supportive and want you to do and achieve your goals. if you want a good education come to chapel hills but if you are looking for a AMAZING sports programs you will not get that eventhough our softball, and cross country is good we are not as good in the other sports. This high school is a great school and i recomend it to anyone that is looking to go to this school.

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!!

Excellent school. Alot of people think it isn't just because we have more blacks than Alexander, but our diversity hasn't hurt our test scores....which are #1 in the county!! Also our sports teams & individuals have the most state titles of all the schools in the county...ever!! Way to go CHHS..keep it up! My children love it there and have been there for 4 years now!

In the past, this school was the best in the area. Now, violence and student behavior is out of control. They have lost many of their top notch teachers.

I moved to this county because I wanted a better place for my children. My son who is in the 9th grade this year didn't, in my opinion, have enough support transitioning. For all that schools say that they want to make happen for our children, it doesn't seem to happen. Voices of children and parents should be supported

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 attends the school and I believe that the school is doing fine, so far. The staff is warm and attentive. 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.

Extremely overcrowded. Completely new administrative staff for 2006-2007 year. Turn over rate for teachers is quite large. If student is lucky enough to get an established teacher (generally AP or honors courses only), they are amazing. As a student, I don't feel safe walking the halls.

I think chapel hill is not a really good school to be in if you want your child to have a good education b/c the teachers really don't let you know how your child is doing in school until the report card comes home. And some of the teachers up in the school are really mean to the children.

I'm a c/o 2005 graduate and I am very proud to be a CHHS graduate. The teachers were great and the student advisement was also great. Not only did the staff help successfully get their students through high school, they also helped them to further their education onto the college level. Along with its now great athletics, I feel that Chapel Hill is a excellent school for students of any type.

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.

This school is fairly new. It recently recieved a new pricipal that very few ever see. The principle is still learning on how to run the school. Some great teachers have left because of the change. There are still some great teachers there who really love what they do and try to prepare students for college. Overall not bad. Just needs a new leader.

I am very impressed with this school. It is a far better school than any other public school in county. The accademics a great. Any student who doesn't succeed at this school made that decision on their own. The teachers and faculty are wonderfull. They have a terrific English department! The math isn't so good. A child could pass four years of math and not know long division!

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.
