    Overall a great school. The teachers are amazing but there is one in particular that can be a little inappropriate. The dress code isn't fair at all. Although it says shorts or skirts cant be above your knee which most students do they still make you change into your gym shorts. One day I walked into the school with pink duct tape supporting breast cancer and the security guard told me to take it off. I never understand why she said that but it got me mad. there was another time where this individual pushed me down for no reason outside on the concrete. I was scrapped up really badly and when I went to the nurse they never called my parents and it took until the next day to be called to the office and questioned about it. I'm not too happy about those incidents but i had a blast learning at this school.

    This is the best school ever. My son is going to high school next year and I am going to miss the athletic coaching staff that believed in my son and literally took him from a 6th grader who never played on a team and transformed him into an 8th grade starter in football basketball and track. I will be eternally grateful to them for turning my son into an athlete. The coaches also come in every summer without pay to train the boys for football season. My son also doesn't get into much trouble because he gets tired out from practice and sports requires him to keep his grades up also. Thank you so much coaches you guys are the best!

    The school is OK. the children there are nasty though my daughter has come home crying before because of bullies. The dress code is far too strict though even if skirts are the right legnth they still get told off for wearing them. Most of the teachers are nice but there is one teacher that can say some very mean things. The parental involvement is minimal to none there are no fundraisers that involve the parents and the only reason i got to see my childs work is because she is in GATE. That is one good thing though the Gifted And Talented Education curriculm (GATE) is offered.

    The teachers and administrators are awesome! they are willing to help the kids when they need it but they also encourage them to find solutions on their own.

    IT is a very nice school with high expectations but the security there is so huge that the students can't go anywhere without their planners.

    My daughter left her private school to join schools in Chesapeake. Out of the schools in VA Bch. None stood up to her level. Finding this area of schooling kept her interest. Her study was changeling and not boring. Overall I think Chesapeake has really put forth a wonderful school with great teachers and a wonderful principal. Keep up the good work.
