I thought the school was great. The teachers give you every opportunity possible to graduate. Also, the ROTC class is amazing.

I went to this school for 4 years and i got good education, leaned English in that school. To all people that said teachers didn't care for their children education the problem was that your children behavior to teachers is horrible, no respect, don't do any homework . Believe i was there and graduated in years of 2012 and i know what im talking about.

I went to this school and it doesn't prepare students well enough for college preparatory exams. I can recall not knowing one student in my graduating class scoring over a 1300 on the SATs, which is below the average of the college I attended. I had to work a lot harder freshmen year to catch up to students from better schools. As a hard science major, I found that the chemistry and physics background was solid, but calculus, computer programming, and writing were no where near where the other students were. Writing is an incredibly important aspect for someone going into the scientific field, and this school did terrible at preparing it's students. The school's main problem is that it focuses all it's resources on kids who don't want to graduate and it holds back other students.

I have had two children in this school. Both have done well with teachers, staff, and courses. One child was straight A's, the other a C-D student. I didn't see any difference in the treatment they received. The population at the school has changed over time. Still, I am satisfied with the education my children have received.

You don't want to hear what I have to say..this school is awful and holds not moral values or teaches them for that fact. I couldn't wait to get my kids out.

I am a current at Chicopee High School. I will be graduating in 2011. I think CHS is fanominal. I have had the best freshmen year.The teachers were great and easy to talk to, the environment is relaxed besides all the MCAs stuff. Pride week was the absolute best week of the year. I ever spelt our class banner wrong. Freshman instead of freshmen. Oopsy, I guess that'll go down in history. Haha. But yes, overall the school is very good and I would not want to go anywhere else. (:

As a student of new Chicopee High I have seen a huge improvement over the old school. Although this is a new, much nicer school, it has no personality to it. The old building had student artwork painted on the walls and the floors were unique, while everything is uniform everywhere in this new school. That's just a personal preference. The major problem I have with this school is the principal. We only see him 3-4 times per school year: the first day, days when he bends the rules for red sox events, pride week and the last day of school. With the exception of a few key teachers I have had, the faculty is pretty good. From what I understand, the school is required to have 2 bathrooms per floor, we have 2, but they only leave one open and from what I'm told its to save time for 'cleaning.'

Honestly, I didn't think that CHS was a very good school. The teachers didn't seem to care about my daughters education. It was as though all they cared about was their pay.
