What makes this school great would have to be the teachers who actually do care. I was lucky enough to build relationships with a few teachers throughout my years attending and I can say that I would not have survived at this school without them. These are the select teachers that are willing to stay after school and help with any questions you may have. Also they are the teachers that applaud when you're doing well and push you when you're not at your best. They truly make me love this school despite all of the bad things.

I love Chiles and would recommend it to everyone. I have had amazing experiences there. The academics part of the school is great, and so is the athletic department. I made many life long friends, and learned many life long lessons.
