Now the students in that school, if your child is very ...  Read more

This school held a cross country meet last week. Children who asked to use the bathrooms were told to go in the bushes just like the little league kids do. They would not even allow the visiting coaches into the building. I wouldn't send my children to a third world school like this one!

Chippewa is a fine school that has many learning opportunities for students that want to strive in academics and extracurriculars. The teachers are very caring and knowledgable.

I have to disagree that this is a great school. My niece has nothing but problems here and the staff ignores the issues. Very sad. May have been a great school a long time ago, but not now. I am on here now researching better schools for my niece since my sister has no choice but to remove her.

Chippewa Middle School is such a GREAT learning place for children. There is rarely any violence and fights! I promise to ALL parents you would be very satisfied with the great job they do. It has been said that Chippewa is a better school than Algonquin.

Chippewa is a great midle school. Although our district had to reduce the school paid sports, the park district took it over and is working hand in hand with the staff so the children do not suffer. the parent involvement is great. I am on the C.O.P.E (like a PTA) and everyone is great. The offer accelerated ...  Read more
