This is a great school with highly trained and very professional teachers and staff members. There is a lot of school pride in the Community which translates into Academic and Athletic accomplishments. Contrary to what a minority of people think, Academics are first and foremost in this District. There has never been an Academic program brought to the attention of the board which was denied funding or support.

My daughter attends here we picked this school because it is small. I am sorry to say that we are not happy here. There seems to be a double standard for those that are in sports. Academics let alot to be desired. Looking back i would have done things differently.

This is a good school! The Teachers and Students are all very friendly and help one another. The only thing is that they spend a little bit more time on sports like wrestling and football, than they should. They should be spending more time on academics and getting our PSSA's scores up! After all, education is the most important thing, sports come after! I feel like the people running this school are biased and care more about what they like and want then what is better for the students.

I attended the Chartiers Houston High School Spring Concert last night. It was fabulous!! Only one thing was not good, I would like to know where were all the parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and etc.? I felt so bad for all the students who has worked so hard to be a part of the band. The auditorium was almost empty. Shame on you....

My child works hard for his grades. School does not come easy for him and the district offers little support for students that struggle. Teachers here do not have patience for struggling kids. I have seen it with my child and I have seen other parents go through the same thing. Wake up teachers and administratioin...this is not productive for anyone. We need to focus on being a more productive school for all the students!

This school district exceeds the basic expectations, is educationally sound, and the performance levels are high expecially in writing. Just take a look at the PSSA scores. I disagree with most of the reviews listed in this web site. I transferred my 7th grade son to this school district October, 2007. The staff and students welcomed him with open arms and was extremely helpful with the transition. Kudos to the 7th grade team who has provided a challenging and positive experience focusing on good self-esteem. The entire school district is growing considerably producing a higher tax base. This provides for more programs and opportunities for the students. There is no air conditioning but talks of installing a system soon. The district has a good fund balance to work with so this is not out of the question. Not a lot of bullying. My son now loves this school!

This is our second year here. We picked this district because we knew there was alot of parent involvement here and the school is very big on sports. too bad they are not as focused on academics as they are sports. We are currently looking into private schooling.

My children transferred to this school and I will tell you this that it has alot of cleaning out to do. The parents of this district are very involved with their kids, which is so awesome, but teaching here lets a lot to be desired. Not run very well.

This school sure does not show me anything to write good about it. They put in a new footbasll field whish had to have artifical turf..yet walking in the school this year it has been so hot the kids are walking around with sweat pouring down their face. Now tell me how can these kids learn when it is that hot and the teachers refuse to let them carry water bottles in the classroom. Give me a break. But we do have a nice looking field!!

Parent involvement is strong and active. Most grade levels have 100 students, tops, in them, and the younger students are pretty segregated from the older ones. I have nothing but good to say about the 7th grade teachers- they make the children strive for success. Their chorus/vocal ensemble often wins awards. Their annual school play is a community legend. There is boys & girls soccer, track, and basketball available along with boy's wrestling, and football.
