I am not a parent but I did attend Chesnee High School and am a recent graduate. My education from there was one that I will never forget and cherish for a lifetime. In response to the comment about all students going to uscs or no where at all and having no responsiblity, well that angers me. That is a total LIE. It is not Chesnee's fault. The education is there, it is up to the student to take on the responsibility to make something of his or her self. The education is top ranked in South Carolina, do your research, and I attend the College of Charleston and I am VERY PROUD to have attended Chesnee High School. I plan on teaching math there in the future and I would recommend it even to Bill Gate's or The President's children. It is the person that decides their future.

Chesnee High is a small school that may not be able to offer quite as many extras as the larger schools. But we cannot equate quantity with quality. As a graduate of CHS I received a top quality education and a full scholarship to college. I have received both a bachelors and masters degrees and attribute much of my success to my formative years in the Chesnee schools. Perhaps the previous writer needs to be educated on all of the advantages of small schools and small town life.

Chesnee High School does not offer a variety of courses as would high schools in a larger area. It also does not challenge the students enough in harder classes. Students that do graduate from chesnee either attend a closeby college (uscs or tech) or do nothing at all. Very very few (as in probably 1 or 0 students) will attend a university that is more than an hour away, and end up moving out. It's the responsiblity of the school to get students involved within their community and outside their community, to offer an array of courses, difficulty levels, and experiences. It's hard for students to gain knowledge of themselves without experiencing what's outthere.

I think that students at Chesnee High School that are willing to learn should thrive and be sucessful in all that they do there. The atmosphere is great and the teachers are friendly. It will be alot easier for the students to learn the material than if they were in a larger school with more students.
