    I was the first 6th grade class to go into middle school at Chisholm trail and I truly loved it. Yes I had some teachers that weren't the best and kind of rude. But there are always going to be those kind of teachers at every school. I truly had an amazing time at CST and it was one of the best schools. Now that I'm in high school I miss it a lot. But I also love my new school Olathe South High School. Chisholm was great and south is great. you'll kid will love it if they make the best of it! & stay out of pointless drama(drama is in every school) overall this a school I would recommend.

    This school is a joke! parents ask your child about the halls after school. if you have a problem and report it the school just gives you lip service. It is over run with constant bullying and harassment. would recommend parents to stay away from this school it has been the worst experience for my child. can't wait to be done with this joke of a school. It all starts at the top and goes down. Do I feel my child is safe at this school? Absolutely not! STAY CLEAR OF THIS SCHOOL!!!

    I'm a student currently attending Chisholm and loving every minute of it. True some teachers aren't the best but then there are some that are just the best they're like your friends! The sports program is outstanding most of the coaches there are great though there is one that isn't my favorite. As for the band I've heard some bad things about the band teacher but our band seems to be pretty good and the kids in it like it. Also as a basketball player I've gotten the chance to see the other schools in this area and I have to say that Chisholm is the nicest one out of them all save for the girl's lockeroom bathrooms. Go CTJ Wildcats!

    This is without a doubt one of the most dedicated staffs that I have been a part of. As a student you would have to fight extremely hard not to succeed in this incredible environment. Teamwork is the key to success and I am fortunate to be a part of this one. You can't go wrong sending your child here. CST is an outstanding school.

    Chisholm Trail JH school has lots of great teachers. They care about the kids. There are a few teachers that we could do without at Chisholm but for the most part they are wonderful. The office staff is wonderful also. The school nurse goes above and beyond her job duty. The whole school works as a team to make everything run smooth. My son was at Chisholm the 1st year it opened. They had some issues to work out being a new school but several years later they are doing fabulous. Keep up the good work and and thanks for teaching our children. Mr. Webber the new principal is awesome. He is also a excellent math teacher. My son had him several years ago. He has great math teaching skills.
