    I could not say this is the best school in US. but it is the best school in Ross county. We have a lot of AP courses students activity club board casting program and this is the only one school district offering Chinese class. We have a lot of good teachers and students here the only thing I think school need improve is teaching students more academic /school culture and follow the school rule.

    Chillicothe High School is academically challenging for which many of their seniors receive university scholarships. I strongly recommend Chillicothe City Schools to parents who want their children to succeed academically.

    We moved to Chillicothe from out of state and chose CHS based on the programs and curriculum. We have three children attending CHS this year and will have 4 attending next year. We have been very happy with the school. The principal is very visible and actively involved in all aspects of the school. The couselor has been excellent in working with our kids and the transition. Our kids have been challenged in the classroom (which was a concern since all are highest honor roll students) and have many choices in terms of honors and AP courses. The school has an excellent credit flexibility program that has allowed my kids to take courses online or independently when the courses are not offered at the school or when they can't be scheduled due to scheduling conflicts. There are many extracuriculars and sports to choose from however my kids would like to see a few more clubs at the school. My kids are involved in the school sports and music programs as well and it has been a very positive experience all around. I have also subbed in the school and have been very pleased so far with the facilities and teachers I have worked with. Would definitely recommend CHS over others.

    My teen has attended CHS for two years now. We moved here from another state due to a work transfer and we chose Chillicothe High School because of its AP and Honors courses Orchestra music and arts programs. Plus as it turns out it has a fantastic Broadcasting program which no other school in the state has. While some of the kids at the school are rough there are also some excellent students. And while there are a few teachers that are TERRIBLE and should not be teaching most of them are excellent. Sometimes the good students are treated like bad students and that is unacceptable. Kids need positive reinforcement not always negative. Lunches are too expensive probably to balance all of the free lunches they have to serve. The sports program is excellent but too much emphasis is placed on sports than curriculum. Overall CHS is BEST IN ROSS CO.

    While this school has several good teachers that really care about the students the administration is horrible with the exception of Mr. Fisher. I think he is the best assett that administration has.There are several fights at this school in any given week. Often the wrong students get the most severe punishment. The principal and vice principal do not address discipline issues in a swift and serious manner.

    I attend CHS and have for three years now and while I don't think it's the best school in the country by any means I do think it's the best in the county. We have wonderful music arts and theatre programs as well as dozens of athletic teams. There are some teachers who don't seem to care but most of them care a lot and work really hard to give us the best education possible.

    the kids need more things to do besides getting in trouble then getting out of it very easily with nothing but a smack on the hand some of the teachers dont care but some do its a sad thing because there is really smart kids in the high school and we are just pushing them thru
