    Chaney-Monge could use alot of inprovement it would be nice if they had more activities for the kids too. The principle has no respect for the kids or parents.

    Chaney monge is a great school. I would recommened it to anyone because they have music(saxophone clarinet baritone eiuphonium trumpet tuba french horn and perccusion) art and sports(basketball baseball softball ect.). The superintendant is great but the principal needs some work.The school needs some repairs but its still a great school.

    Class room teachers are excellent. They are the one should be getting a raise not the administrators(superintendent and principal)who are not as great as they should be. If they are so great the school should be in financially better shape. Although they do have music art and sports the quality of those subjects are far from satisfactory. They have cut few academic programs and doing poorly in extracurricular activities. The principal needs to treat parents and students with respect! If she has she would have more support.
