I had two kids graduate from Chaboya and overall they had good experience there. The special ed program is very good. Some of the mainstream teachers are better than others. The office staff ladies could be friendlier and take time to get to know the students' names.
Concerned and unimpressed with the school principal and his staff. Front office personnel appear aloof and unconcerned.
From a former's student point of view, Chaboya was a great school, but I certainly don't miss attending there. The staff, even the principals, overall was pleasant, just not very friendly. The dress code was too strict because I don't see the problem with wearing leggings or yoga pants? I got sent to the office just because I wore leggings and a cropped shirt WITH tank top covering belly. However, my biggest complaint is that every teacher gives a lot of homework. They shouldn't be too strict into stuffing too much homework in their students' faces. I just wish the superintendent could do something about this because sometimes I feel the teachers are a bit harsh on their students. Also, Chaboya should have more rallies and spirit days that everyone should enjoy. I am giving 3 stars because I miss all of my friends I have made there, and all the cool, fun dances I went to!
1/- This new Common Core Math assigns an 8th grader to repeat the same pre-algebra with a little bit of the new "common core" material. They do have a higher Geometry course but the students have to pass an Algebra I test with high score. they need to have is an Algebra I 2/- If you put your name in the wrong place of your homework which account for 25% of your final grade[*] ) you will get 60% point or a D note:[*] usually Final Grade = 25%homework+25%participation+25%test+25%project 3/- The reason I gave the school a 3 stars is because of the high score of excellence students(5) and the admin(0).... (0+5)/2 = 2.5 rounded to 3. 4/- "it is like no child left behind and no child left ahead". Everyone has to do the same basic stuff until the last person gets it. And in a group , it is the duty of the other group members to teach everyone until all get the concept, other wise they will loose points. If that the group got an F which account for 25%, my kid still got a C overall score (100% in everywhere which is very tough in this school-therefore D is more likely).
