I have had 5 children graduate from Chatard high school in the last 8 years. They all had different personalities, strengths and weaknesses. It was a great academic and learning environment where their different levels of abilities were met and they have a great resource department for those needing extra help. I always felt the teachers respected my children and had the utmost concern for them. We wanted our chiIdren in an academically strong school that taught and lived the Catholic values we live at home. My children truly loved being a part of the Chatard community as well as us. It was truly It was a great decision on our part to send our children to Chatard and to become part of the Chatard community.
I have seen the teachers, administrators and students show tremendous amounts of compassion and care for other students and the community. It can definitely be observed on the campus and in the community when they reach out as a student body and individually.
Sadly the new administrators are the worst power-hungry individuals you will ever meet. They have no understanding of the mission of the Catholic church, and lack all the integrity that pass administrators have held on for so long. The students are welcoming, but you can't get too far when the blinds are leading the blinder. It is no longer about the hard work and service to the students but bullying staffs and lazy administrators who ignore the concerns of parent and student - Sad
Ineffective because they lack compassion and understanding. A good teacher sees the weakness of his/her student and aims to rectify it, by helping them overcome their worst barriers. A great teacher is the beacon of light in a student's academic journey.
