14 Parent Reviews for Chicago High School For Agricult Sciences

A true shame. No discipline. Extremely poor academics. A very unpleasant place. Teachers leave during class for smoke breaks. Kids are unruly in class and no one cares. No communication. Did I mention my kid got vegetable oil thrown on her during spirit main hall inside school?

I came ...  Read more

I am the parent of a CHSAS student. I chose this school for my child based on good ratings in the past. Except for a handful of teachers, I found the teacher quality to be average. There are extracurricular activities offered. In my opinion, parent involvement is not encouraged--except on the literature ...  Read more
