I have to say that I am very disapointed in CHS. This is our first attempt at High school,and it is unbelievable how my child was treated this year,and the bullies were allowed to get by with it. Over and over we tried on numerous occassions to get the trouble to stop, and as it turns out if you are labeled 'Special Ed', you get special treatment. You can beat up whoever you want(including the teacher),and get by with it. The good child is asked to leave the school,and the trouble makers are allowed to stay and torment their next victim. I definetly don't think that there is enough parent involvement. If there was they would know exactly what their children are up to. I really don't think that I am the only parent who feels this way. Very sad indeed, especailly when we heard very good things about this school.

I feel that overall, this school does above average in areas such as parent involvement and awareness. What the school lacks is diversity and minority representation. Academically, I found it to be an enjoyable enviornment for the most part. While attending, I forged relationships with many of the faculty that I still maintain to this day.

This school a great school in a good area. The teachers make sure every student is doing well. The only down part of the school is that the administration this that they are 'IT'! They think they are the best and do not treat each student fairly. The teachers are great my kids grades are up and the students get a long great. The only problem is that the administration thinks they are doing the right thing giving the students no rights. I am glad i only have 1 more kid to go. Yes, i would send another kid there when the administraion is replaced or tought how to run a school!

Accelerated students will do very well, Chesapeake offers at least 15 Adavanced Placement courses and numerous electives in each department. Students will do well if their parents are very active in their education.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland High School Assessments (HSA) to test students in English 2, Algebra, and Biology upon completion of each course. The HSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. Students are required to pass the tests in order to graduate. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
