So sad for the kids trying to do better in this school. It's a crime that there are not other options for these kids. To the parents....I feel sad for you if you have a child striving to be their best; what a struggle it will be for you and them. We moved out of this district a few years ago and while things may appear OK at Chichester School district you are totally being underserved by this district. It's a very sad and depressing thing that my child had to spend a few years at the middle school; you people should try to do better by your kids, there are much better district in PA and NJ, but you have to move and see for yourself the differences. I didn't realize what a total disservice I was subjecting my child to until we moved into a much better, move academically advanced school district. The differences are amazing when you see a more cutting edge school and what can be offered for your child. If you have an academically advanced child there would be much, much more invested in them instead of this border line education they are receiving at Chichester. let's face it, your tax dollars are going into programs for troubled kids. you are not getting your money's worth!

This school, the district and the townships that comprise this district are pathetic. You have absolutely outrageous taxes in this district and the middle and high school are a mini version of our neighboring Chester high school. Foul language is the standard among the student body. Graduation rates is somewhere in the 60% to low 70% range and post secondary acceptance in even lower. The parents are fooling themselves if they think "Chi is the place to be." Congratulations to the few kids who rise above all the rubble and go on to be productive members of society. This is a horrible district with these poor kids having no choice but to attend these horrible schools or choose cyber school. They need to create a charter school; there are plenty of kids that want to do better and have the abilities to achieve more than the average student;that will never happen because the students with problems are the focus. In my opinion they do not do enough for the high achieving students in this school. Honest, the teachers seem great, but all the great teachers have a hard job because the behaviour problems take up so much of their time. My advice: Move right across the bridge to N.J.

The teacher's and all of the staff members are great. It is the kid's using bad language and threatening other kid's has to be stopped.

Nothing like having you child come home and tell you the kid sitting next to them says they will "f**k you up if you don't give me the test answers" almost every day. Gives you a warm fuzzy feeling. Put my home up for sale the next day.

Honestly I think the middle school is in recovery from bad leadership. The teachers at middle school have to work extra hard to bring students up to speed from a elementary level. I do believe the new principal is going in the right direction with student accountability. I have met some great teachers as well. Teachers want to motivate the student to grasp a concept while holding him or her responsible for their work construct. If your a proactive parent your child will get a great education!

I am a student at this school. CMS has a fight almost everyday. The food isn't that bad, the teaching isn't that bad either, well at least on the 6th Grade Cougars. Principal Salamone is okay, but he is a little on the loud side, but I love him. Chi gets involved with many things, wrestling, volleyball, football, colorguard, and much more. I would give this school a 8.5/10.

Overall I think Chi is a good middle school. I like that the 5th graders are on a seperate floor from the other grades. They don't give much homework. They need to give spelling test. I don't understand the need for gym every day. The buses usually get the kids to school late every day.

Chi is a wonderful school! The teachers are great but the principle is okay. I liked Mr. Salamone better, but Ms. Husar is okay too. The school's sports programs are also great! The track at the high school, which middle school students go to, is the best one i've seen so far! overall, this school is great! Im currently a student at chi...and i love it there! The foods bad, but you'll live! Trust me...I did.

I think the teacher at this school give 110% to their students. I think the principal needs to be more of a impact at this school. She needs to disaplin more and stay out of her office. Also I feel parents need to be more involve in their children. For the most part I feel it is a good school.

Parent involvement, web site improvements, and improved guidance personnel should help Chi move forward. Teacher quality is headed in the right direction.

Chichester is an up-and-coming school district and it is trying very hard to improve in all levels of education. The middle school is the 6th largerst in PA but it's very well divided among grades. The facilities are lacking compare to other school but the teachers are fantastic.

My children have had wonderful teachers at Chichester, especially at the middle school. The principal and Mr. Moon have always been willing to listen. The teachers in every grade go out of their way to help their students. I have always been treated with respect when dealing with my children's teachers. I know parents in other districts who have a hard time getting a hold of a teacher. My son and daughters teachers were after school for help, returned my calls right away, and I was never turned down for any conference I requested. Chi is great!
