I graduated as valedictorian from this school a few years back, so I'd like to think I'm well qualified to write this review. Most of the teachers are excellent and truly do care about their students, but the lack of resources and shallow course offerings really bring this school down. There is very little college prep, no AP courses, only one (ridiculously simple) foreign language offered in person, and few opportunities for outstanding students to distinguish themselves from the crowd. I often found my ability to excel treated as more of an inconvenience for the administration than an accomplishment. The sports teams are only average, and academics aren't taken very seriously, but if your just looking for an easy path to a high school diploma, this school may be for you.

This school definately shows more leadership than most others. The teachers are completely understanding and easy to get along with. The students get along with them so well that they may sometimes forget that the teacher is in authority, but it never gets out of hand. And Chaffee happens to be one of the smartest schools in the area for its size. Chaffee pushes your child into doing good in school, even if they don't have as many choices because it is a smaller school. If it were as big as Cape Central/Jackson/Notre Dame/St. Vincent then it would most likely be one of the top schools in the state. The town of Chaffee is small but the school spirit is enourmous. If you don't believe me come to a Chaffee game sometime, if you were at the first Chaffee vs. Scott City game you understand what I mean.

This school definitely lacks leadership! The students in the Chaffee school district aren't disciplined and have little respect for their community. I live in the area and definitely plan on paying to send my child to another school district or private school. I don't think the students here have the drive to get more education and lack the opportunity that much larger schools offer, whether it be academics or athletics.

very good school, a community that supports everyone. The sports teams are very supported.

clearly the previous review isn't well informed... the football program would be the last thing they would do away with, considering it is the top money maker (attendance, concessions, booster club) now that chaffee is winning games again. the kids have pride in their school again! the new administration is great!

small school and classes is a bonus, but lack of extra classes and college prep are a down fall. The kids have no respect and the teachers dont seem to care. The school is just average. They could do away with the football program and maybe then they could afford to have better academics to choose from.
