Chesapeake has many available facilities and parents are encouraged to be involved with their child's middle school experience. Overall, Chesapeake Middle is a great school.

The staff is friendly and helpful, and the teachers are great. The downside is school fairs are mandatory. Students should have the option of not competing. This year, officials at the County Fair gave out very few superior awards, and only projects rated as superior were recognized as category winners. Now, the problem is, there was at least one category where no student received a superior rating; therefore, the top student in that category received only a ribbon and medal. He was treated the same as students who didn't win. His months of hard work and sacrifice fell by the wayside, and that was wrong. Are we saying the best you can be isn't good enough in Lawrence County schools if you are not a superior rated student? Students shouldn't be subjected to this type of unfair bias, because few are superior oriented. Most are just hard working kids who deserve to be treated better than this. Every category should have had a winner, even if the best project only received an excellent rating. Your school should refuse to host school fairs with unfair, biased policies. It does not reflect well on your staff. I was there and saw this happen, and I was appalled. It's hard to watch a child being coldly demoralized. Thank you.
