1 review for Chatham High School

  • Reviewed by Former Student on October 12, 2009
  • Rating: 2 (2 / 5) Flag as inappropriate
  • A typical public school, they emphasize favorable test scores (which anyone with binge/purge study habits can obtain) over the creative exploration and critical thought that leads to genuine intellectual gain. The town itself is a small, insular exurb that noticeably lacks diversity. As such, children (and adults for that matter) tend to sacrifice their individuality to the gods of mediocrity in exchange for the privilege to conform. All in all, it's a great place to be average.
