Completely disagree with previous parent. We are lucky to have such a skilled and highly devoted principal. School is excellent in every aspect. Teachers and administration work hard. Parents have high expectations. Kids are interested in learning. Rules are fair and strictly enforced. It is rare for parents to have much to complain about. Or kids, for that matter.
Chenery has figured out how to walk that fine line between nurturing, fostering independence, and achievement. My kids are in Belmont schools from the beginning, with two years into Chenery, and we are very pleased so far. This is the town of well educated hard-working parents that value family and education, and this reflects on our schools as well.
The principal is totally useless. Given the ineptitude, the school would probably run better if no one was at the helm. It's clear that she must have known somebody to get this job. The teachers are nice but most don't really have their hearts in it. They know they will not be replaced. So, many of them do as much as they feel is necessary, but not more.
I agree with the other student. The trust and freedom the staff have in the students is wonderful. It let's us develop responsibility. Its a very good school that challenges students at every level. Great diversity too. Overall I think Chenery is an excellent school
The teachers are nice but actually teach well and the freedom is wonderful. All those parents out there, you don't know what your talking about! You've only been in our school max 40 times, we go here EVERYDAY
Chenery is of uneven quality: a few outstanding teachers, a lackluster and unresponsive administration. Too much teaching to the test, insufficient experiential learning. It's okay but not as good as it can or should be.
