Chuckey Doak High School Ratings & Reviews
Compared to the other county schools, I think our school is fabulous. I went to Science Hill before moving here, and I would have to say the people are 90% nicer, probably just for the fact that our school is a county school. We're extremely school spirted. I couldn't ask for more understanding teachers. I've loved them all. I like the small school feel. It's not hard to know everyone and everything about anyone, which could be taken as a pro or a con. Frye, like the parents said, will work with anyone, as long as it's a pressing matter. The only thing I would really want MORE of is AP courses, but I can't complain too much there, there's not reallly a huge amount of interest.
Great school, with excellent academic programs, sports programs and many clubs. As a parent, I try to be as involved as my schedule will allow, always being supportive and helping any way I can. There are a lot of parents who are this way, and some just don't seem to care, but it would be like that at any school. My daughter loves the school and wouldn't want to go anywhere else; we are in another school district, she absolutely did not want to go there. The experience she has had thus far is great, friendly people, extremely helpful teachers, willing to work with her one on one if needed. I highly recommend the school, and as a former student myself, can say that I had an awesome high school experience during my years there.
My daughter will be a 2008 graduate of CDHS! She loves going to school there. Even though we aren't in the CDHS district, thats where she chose to go, and we wanted her to. I can say that she has had the best years @ CDHS. My husband, being a graduate of CDHS himself, says the same of his time there. No scool is without fault, as is no person. Principle Frye is always willing to listen to our parental concerns. Although he may not address the teacher or coach of the concern, I think sometimes his hands are tied so to speak and chooses his battles accordingly. But that doesn't make it any less of a concern to him. He genuinely cares for the students and their well being. Luckily, we've had only 2 problems with teacher/coaches. 1 of the 2 was taken care of(hince 'hands tied' thing). Highly recommend.
Having had a student already go through CDHS and one currently attending: CDHS techers and staff do not interact much with parents concerning acedemic. Unless your child has a discipline problem you probably will not hear from the teachers or the principle. Over the past five years, I have called the school for different reasons, only to speak to an answering machine, and never have my calls returned. If I had the option to send my child to a different school, I would in a heartbeat!
