This school held a cross country meet last week. Children who asked to use the bathrooms were told to go in the bushes just like the little league kids do. They would not even allow the visiting coaches into the building. I wouldn't send my children to a third world school like this one!
Chippewa is a fine school that has many learning opportunities for students that want to strive in academics and extracurriculars. The teachers are very caring and knowledgable.
I have to disagree that this is a great school. My niece has nothing but problems here and the staff ignores the issues. Very sad. May have been a great school a long time ago, but not now. I am on here now researching better schools for my niece since my sister has no choice but to remove her.
This comment is @ the last reviewer. You sound like an awesome kid. Educate yourself. It is SO possible. Ask the librarians to help you select books that match your interest, check out the homeschool section filled with academic books that may be more enriching than what you get at school, research online by topic, talk to the homeschoolers at the library they will be more than willing to share everything they know, you may even find an online class. The library has a book called The Well Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer that may be helpful. You're smart and you can do it.
I hated this school!! I am a former student of Central and now student of Chippewa. Teachers could care less of students. They care more about make-up and new single teachers. The principle runs the school like a cotholic school. Everything has to be done this way or... Kids are jerks here!! There are fights everyday in hall ways. Making out~~ UCK!!! Acidemics suck@@ No spelling. math and science stink. I want to be a math teacher, but i am learning that this may not happen. I love math but that is not embrased here. I hate this school i like sports but kids play dirty
I am a former student that went to cumberland, chippewa, and now at maine west. This school has kids here strive for academic excellence. I wish I was still a student here at the amazing school.
Chippewa Middle School is such a GREAT learning place for children. There is rarely any violence and fights! I promise to ALL parents you would be very satisfied with the great job they do. It has been said that Chippewa is a better school than Algonquin.
Chippewa is a great midle school. Although our district had to reduce the school paid sports, the park district took it over and is working hand in hand with the staff so the children do not suffer. the parent involvement is great. I am on the C.O.P.E (like a PTA) and everyone is great. The offer accelerated math classes for those gifted and Spanish. This is a great school to send your children to. We are on our third child that will graduate from here with honors.
