    Overall Experience: My overall experience at charter oak high school was alright. The parents were pretty involved in athletics and other types of activities and there were never really any issues with parents and faculty when I attended the school. It's mostly known for sports and it's IB/AP programs but it's improving slowly in other areas

    Teachers: Charter oak high school was a good school but it had certain qualities that could have been better such as the clubs, school lunches, the extracurricular activities and the drama and dance deparyment. But overall my experience was alright and I learned what I needed to learn and was prepared. There could always be improvements.

    Overall Experience: i like the culture of the school. it isn't divided into popularity levels and i like that. there isn't a lot of bullying and people for the most part get along with each other. i've made some good friends there and they seem like they will become life long friends too. the school seems to get what it is they need and that's what is important.

    Teachers: some of the teachers here care about their students inside and outside of their classrooms. some of the teachers care about their students well beings. not all of them do. they mainly care that the student is passing their class, they don't care about you passing others. they care that you get what you need to get done for their class. but not all of the the teachers are bad. some of the teachers there need to go, but for the most part they get their job done.
