I'am a student who goes here, and I highly regret swapping to CA. This school ruined me. Don't go the staff is careless about students and makes the wrong calls. Teachers only help and socialize with A+ students. Ninety percent of students are all heartless people. Your child will suffer here only a few teachers really care. The school is also filled with druggies and sellers. I cant wait to swap schools this one is terrible. I am 16 years old in tenth grade and i highly hate it here.

Chester Academy is just a less than decent school. I am a student of Chester Academy and it is NOT a good school. Teachers in this school have: lowered grades of students for "class-participation", and also highered other students grades for "class-participation". it is just who the teacher likes better and not how much the person participates. Another MAJOR problem that I have had with this school is that the teachers plug the grades into the computer and don't check the math. I personally have had to ask the staff to review my grades multiple times. On average the grade is off by 3-5 points, and on one occasion it was off by 18, that is an unacceptable error to make on a quarterly grade. So the teachers are usually sub-par, the principal is actually TERRIBLE and plays favorites, the classes offer no variety, and the events of the school year are best seen as unorganized, and overcomplicated wastes of time. It is not a good school

This school is very poor. Some of the teachers are good and some aren t. They don t care if the student is learning or not. They only help good students, because these students don t need help if you know what I mean. The program is VERY poor as well. Not too many options or variety for kids to do extra-curricular activities. Furthermore, the main problem of this school is THE PRINCIPAL. In short, if she does not like your child, if your child is not a star the poor kid will have it very rough. She will be on their back all the time, like a hawk; Instead of helping your child will become a target, making their life miserable. I really regret having my kid in this school, I had the chance to register in Goshen High School but went for this school just for convenience. Goshen HS has a better program, more activities, more kids and a bigger budget, therefore better school. Do yourself a favor and don t send your kid to this school.

This school like any other has its positive and negative aspects. I like that the students get one on one attention and rarely fall between the cracks like in many larger school districts. The teachers for the most are great and willing to offer extra help when needed. The staff is helpful and willing to help with anything needed, The principal sometimes leaves a lot to be desired with his cocky attitude. Class sizes are small and

My daughter just graduated from this school. Newly built, small class sizes, was two of the reason we decided to move to the area. I would recommended the school to parents that are looking for a small community school for their children.

I love this school because of it's small size. My children get one on one attention and are never treated like a number. They have some great teachers and some not just like every other school. Because the school is small all the kids get along and work well together.It is truly a special place to learn.

I like this school for my child because it is a very small school and my child gets a lot of one on one help. You are not a number at this school because of the size it is. Also the teachers take their time and teach the kids really well.
