    Overall Experience: I love Chandler High School. I came here from a very small prep school with about 80 kids in my graduating year class. Because I have never been to a large school before, I was not sure what to expect. Many people would tell me that it would be extremely hard to meet new people, since everyone has their own cliches and groups already, that there would be drugs and unsafe behavior, and just all those stereotypical events. But, Chandler High was not like that at all. I met a lot of friends and the teachers try to get to know each and every one of their students. If I ever needed help, I could ask them. Even with thousands of students every day, all of my teachers remembered my name. I'm really glad I chose to move to Chandler High because there was also so much this school was able to offer. From the different classes to clubs, I have much more choices.

    Overall Experience: I have had a great high school experience, mostly because of the opportunities available to me. The teachers are also great, as they will often teach beyond the classroom and genuinely care for all students.

    Overall Experience: I wish there was more of an emphasis on extracurriculars that are not sports, (we have at least four sports assemblies a year, but never have any performing arts assemblies) but overall going to this school is a very positive experience.

    Teachers: Just like at any school there are good and bad teachers, but the good teachers tend to be excellent.
