Chapel Hill 7th & 8th Grade Center1

This is my child's first year at CHC. He's a good student and tries to do his best. Lately, he is being bullied and this has been reported to the staff. We are still having problems and now the bully is physically threatening my son. I grew up here and went to Wayne Twp Schools and I'm saddened how horrible it must be to go to school here. Wished we could afford to move out of this Township.
My granddaughter is in 7th grade and really seems to enjoy the school. She is a straight-A student and involved in several extra-curricular activities, which she also enjoys very much. She has made several new friends and likes her teachers.
The team system at this school is definitely not fair and impartial. I was very involved in my student's elementary education, but find it very stressful to stay involved in the secondary system. It is successful for the top 3% ISTEP students (does not necessarily include straight A students like mine) and the trouble making students and the needy. Those in the middle which is the majority are just on auto pilot. My student is making straight A's, but has not learned much and is afraid to be there. Very sad!
