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.

I went to Chandler High for four years and it was a wonderful experience. All of my teachers were very nice and were always willing to help if a student didn't understand something. They also have wonderful opportunities to get involved. I personally was involved in the Best Buddies club which involved planning and doing events with the disabled students such as bowling, movie night, water events/etc. I was also in Unified Sports which also involved the disabled students and there were different sports that we could play with them such as football, track, and Cheer. There are so many wonderful opportunities at Chandler High to excel and have fun and get involved. I highly recommend Chandler High School is you're looking for an excellent school.

I found it to be quite a competitive, challenging, and nevertheless rewarding school to be in. The students took their studies seriously and that allowed for classroom involvement to be fairly high. I had a wonderful, engaging professor in every course that I took and I am very thankful for that. My english professor specifically gave me a lot of inspiration for how I wanted regard my future profession and treat other students. Another person who made an impact on me in Chandler High School was a member of the administration. While I always found administration to be helpful, this particular person served to be more than an advisor and truly changed my life. I would not change my experience at Chandler High School or anything because it has made such a tremendous impact on my life.
