    Extracurriculars: The staff in charge of the IB is awesome! They are all encouraging and supportive. Each of them are concerned with your well being as well as your education. The head coordinator, Mrs Bender, has been there for me through everything. She has seen me both laugh and cry. She has always been there to help me in making decisions or even being there just for me to vent to. The overall program is outstanding, filled with wise and helpful individuals.

    Overall Experience: I have attended chandler for only one full school year and it is already my home. The staff is incredible and extremely supportive. The teachers push you to do your very best while still grading accurately and fairly. The students are also very friendly and welcoming. I went in my junior year and never had to eat lunch alone. I currently have a group of friends from chandler whom I consider family. The school spirit and student involvement in sports as well as the artistic side of the school is very high. Chandler High School is very well rounded when it comes to academics, sports, and arts. I am enrolled in IB diploma, this means I have taken all honors and AP classes throughout high school. I also play golf for a team that has great coaches and players. This school has given me so may opportunities and I am so grateful I moved to this school, it truly is the best.

    Teachers: I have gone to two different high schools throughout the last three years; chandler high has a thoughtful, involved, hardworking staff. Every teacher I have encountered, regardless if I was their student, has treated me with respect and tried to help as much as possible. They are strict, but overall help you in succeeding for tests, AP tests and your overall quality of learning.

    Extracurriculars: There is a wide variety of extracurricular activities on campus and range from different interests. Fishing club, Environmental club, and Bible club are a few examples. Some clubs are more committed than others to say the truth, but there is noticeable effort to support each clubs's growth.

    Overall Experience: I was shy as a student since kindergarten. Here I got to branch out and meet new people, who later became great friends or mentors. This school has its own unique way about it from diversity and importance of academics. I wish I could go back in time to attend this school again and make better choices than the ones I made four years ago.
