    the teachers here are wonderful but this school got a new principal a couple yrs ago. Unfortunately he makes his own rules as he goes along and the consequences for disciplinary actions are not consistent with school board regulations.

    I feel Chatham High School only teaches to SOL minimum standards with the instructors just trying to get through the SOLs and keep their jobs. They don't focus enough energy on teaching students who want to go to college and I felt my daughter was behind upon entering the collegiate arena.
