  • I think that Chillicothe High School is an okay place to attend. There is a lot of drama, but mostly within the cliques. There are a very wide range of oppurtunties at my school. We also have a large diversity, with students from Mexico, Germany, and even Italy. Our sports are a big part of our school years. Most students are involved in at least one. We also have many different clubs and organizations with a huge turnout of students. The city of Chillicothe is a wonderful place to grow up and the schools here are pretty good academically.

  • If the first post is any indication of what is being taught, in regards to grammar and sentence structure, this school district, and its students are in a lot of trouble. Were we not taught to capitalize the "i" when referring to ourselves? Were we not taught to capitalize the first letter of a new sentence? Were we not taught the difference between "know" and "now"? I am fearing for my child's education.
