Chiddix Jr High School 2

Very disappointed in the level of commitment and follow through from specific teachers, and zero assistance from principal to implement necessary change. Teachers of notoriously tough subjects should strive to create a more seamless transition from 5th to 6th grade, not make it harder than it already is. Overall huge let down for our first year here and unfortunately one bad teacher spoils the bunch for me. Maybe 7th grade will be better.

DO NOT send your gifted kids to this school or any other Unit 5 middle schools because they don't have ANY type of special programs or higher standard learning classes AT ALL.

If your kids are gifted don't send them here as they spend no money on gifted programs. Smart kids are generally undervalued here because it is clearly not a priority.

Academically and ethically the school is not what it used to be! Keep alert and listen to your child.

Meeting Teachers in the review session was very useful interaction. I really appreciate their good understanding & their experience. My son faces adjustment problems with other kids and we working with Associate Principal on this. I find school response encouraging.

My daughter has adapted very well to Chiddix Junior High. The teachers, staff, and classmates were very welcoming. I was disappointed in the level of academics, they are about 2 years behind the area we moved from and do not have anything to offer past a certain point, so she is taking the same classes she took as an honor roll student in seventh grade over as an eighth grader here in Chiddix. That has left her bored and with a loss of interest this year. The music teacher is great, but the program is behind what I was used to as a standard program. I believe the whole unit needs to raise the expectations and the students will follow with the quality of work expected.
