This school may have a lighthouse award however do not be fooled. One for a better word is that this school has a habit of bullying there own students. They believe that parents should stay out and let teachers be teachers. Well how about you let parents be parents. We do not expect you to treat parents like children. Note we are not here to be disrespected in this way. I would not recommend this school to any family unless you are just looking for a false image about it being so great and in a prime location.

This school is pretty good. The school is strict, so it enforces a good learning facility. The teachers are very BIG on education and will not let you down. Although this school is not perfect, it's so far the best public middle school in the state of GA!!!!!!!

Both of my children attended Chapel Hill Middle School. Of course like any other school there are always a few bad apples in the bunch but for the most part the teachers were nice and the principal and assistant principal I found really to be great leaders; they greeted you with a smile and were always friendly. They responded to issues quickly. And there were times when the teachers would call to tell you something great about your child. I was impressed by that. Although grades are important to them they recognized the character of a student and I think that needs to be done more throughout the Georgia school system. I hope this helps anyone considering this school for their child.

Chapel Hill Middle is an extraordinary public school. The administration is very responsive and is always searching for new ways to deliver rigorous, quality education to students at all levels. As a fine arts and advanced academic theme school, CHMS excels at promoting music education and the performing and visual arts, and offers many advanced class options in all academic subjects. With school budgets constantly being constricted, I am repeatedly amazed at how this school continues to find ways to improve education, athletics, and extracurriculars. As a parent of past and current students at this school, I would highly recommend it over all the other public, private and charter schools in the surrounding area.

We moved up from FL, which my child was in a school of arts magnet school and did excellent at and was learning computer graphics, dance, theater and drama, dance, and had vocal class. Upon moving to GA my child went to Renaissance Middle school in Fulton county. If I would have known that Chapel Hill didn't really have much to offer, no home economics, no drama clubs, etc and not to mention no school nurse AT ALL at the school, I would have left my child at Renaissance, and I would have rather got up and drove my child to Fulton County everyday and picked them up, because Renaissance had more to offer and my child had better grades. At Chapel Hill the grades weren't bad but they were lower than before. I do like that the Physical Ed coach have the kids being very active during gym because they really do need to be more active. I do NOT like they way they have one big room with dividers to separate the class, because to me its a distraction because you can hear the other teachers as they are trying to teach. All other schools have individual, separate classes. They give more into the 6th grade vs the ones that are needing to be prepped for high school. I'm looking for a new school.

I am now in the eighth grade at chapil hill and i would say that my experience has overall pretty good. Although I would say the teachers need to work more on listening to the students. The school has great extracurricular activities, mostly good kids, and a great staff, I mainly enjoy the fact that the school is now considered a fine arts school. GO WILDCATS!

I chose this school due to the high ratings. I am from another state my son was once an honor roll student and class president. I've taken into consideration that a family move can have a great impact on your child. After receiving constant complaints from the staff that my child is doing poorly, I've tried everything in my power to schedule conferences. All attempts have failed finally when 2nd semester came I immediately pulled him out of this school and was amazed to see the line of other parents doing the same. If you value your childs education, look to another school.

Chapel Hill Middle School has a great administration team. They also have great teachers who care about the students. The procedures are helpful to the students and allow them to be successful.

The administration is the best! They truly want our kids to do their best & they get to know every one of our kids. Our principal, VP and some of our teachers come to all of the after school softball games that our girls play. The teachers are outstanding and they expect our kids to exceed and with all their help and guidance they do.

Chapel Hill is an outstanding school. A parent stated earlier that test scores are decreasing. That is not true. Test scores are increasing. Teachers care about student achievement and the discipline is great at Chapel Hill Middle. I highly reccommend this school!

Our three children have all been students at Chapel Hill Middle School and I can't say enough great things about this school. They have incredibly high expectations for the students and faculty. If you set the bar high, people will rise to the occasion. It is awesome that this entire school seems to understand that! They respect their students enough to know that they can all achieve their personal best, no matter what that may be.

This school has their act together. They keep a tight hold on behavior and set very high standards for the kids. Teachers have been teaching there for years and most teachers would love the opportunity to teach there. Chapel Hill MS still holds on to the title of being a top notch school even with recent changes in the area.

Low standards for academics seems to be an epidemic in this entire district. We moved here from another state at the beginning of the school district, and I am so disappointed that I am seriously considering home schooling my child. I do not get the impression that the teachers, or the administration, cares for the children's well being either. Everytime I schedule a conference to work things out, I get a note or a phone call with some reason to why a conference would not be a good idea. I could really make this a very long post as to why I do not recommend this school district. To make a long list short, if you value your childs education, look to another school district other than douglas.

My son was in the first 6th grade academy class-I felt that there could have been more productive conversation between the teacher and parent-my son did not excel in all classes, and I feel that he was just pushed along-I don't like that the school focus is more on passing tests and funding, than on the development of the child. Its seems like the ones who 'get it' receive more attention than the ones who don't. I also didn't like how they resolved conflict-

I have been going to this school for two years and I am currently enrolled here. The staff is supportive and helpful in the academic field, and the sports department is amazing. My problem with this school is the students. Though they may be smart and physically fit, many need a new attitude. They teachers and staff seem to not realize the fact that kids are being extremely stuck-up and rude towards those who don't have as much money. They are obsessive over name brands, and they feel the needs to brag about it. I think this school is in serious need of uniforms. Though they will probably be ugly (yeah I said it), many of the students grades may come up because they no longer have to worry everyday when they go to school what the other kids are going to say about their clothes. You can qoute this.

My son spent 3 years at this school. We were very pleased with the principal, teachers and the academics provided. The only thing that bothered me was the strong focus on the 'athletics', to the point of making the kids who were not on athletic teams 'second class'. I would like to see more emphasis on those that excel academically, and less on those excelling in sports. End of year award ceremonies were guaranteed to recognize the athletes, with minor emphasis on those who excelled in other areas.

We found that CHMS was an exceptional middle school that provided a strong academic foundation for our daughter. The school also provided many extra activities that enhanced the students independence. Go beta! We love Ms. Gray! The administration & staff are dedicated and receptive to parents concerns and recommendations. Overall we were extremely pleased with the schools performance and give it an a+!

This was a great school. I attended this school for three years and had no problems at all. The teachers are great, the staff is incredible, and there are all types of activities to choose from.
