This school admittedly, has a not-so great reputation. However, many of these are exaggerated. There are issues within the School and Student Body, (foul language is more than prevalent, drugs are not unheard off to the district, average to below average standardized test scores, etc.), but there is plenty right with school as well. There is a fantastic music program, offering several choruses and bands. There's a wide variety of sports for students to choose from, with the most popular being football, and of course the parents love to be involved with all extracurricular activities. . Another point, is there is not one teacher that will not sacrifice their own time, and go far beyond their job title to assist a student in need. For me the largest problem in the school is the sheer lack of pride. When something goes wrong, or there is an issue, it is not uncommon to hear, "That's Chi for you" or "Welcome to Chi". It is this mentality that I believe causes several of the problems within the district in the first place. While I can openly admit that my school has more than it's fair share in issues, it's the school I have unwavering pride for, and there's no where else I'd rather go.
