    End of Course Tests

    South Carolina requires End of Course tests, counting as the final exam, in particular subjects. This exam is called the “EOC” and counts as 20% of your child’s final grade in that class. The first semester End of Course test schedule for Chester is as follows:

    • English I Writing – Tuesday, December 11th
    • English I Reading – Wednesday, December 12th
    • Algebra I – Thursday, December 13th
    • Biology  – Friday, December 14th
    • Make-up EOC exams – Monday, December 17th & Thursday, December 20th


    CHS will be on a testing schedule. The EOC test will begin around 8:15 am and end at 11:14 am. 

    Please help us by making sure the following measures are taken to ensure your child’s success on the EOC.

    1.    Make sure your child arrives to school on time. Testing will begin each morning at approximately 8:15 am. Students arriving after this time will have to take their test on the Make-Up date. The test is not timed and all students are encouraged to do his/her best work.

    2.    We ask that you not schedule doctor appointments or out of school functions on days your child will be required to take the EOC test.

    3.    Please encourage your child to get a good night’s rest, eat a good nutritious breakfast, and arrive early to school. We also ask that you do not sign your child out the mornings of the EOC tests in order that they can do their best work.

    4.    Cell phones are not allowed during testing. Students may not be in possession of an electronic device that can be used for communication, timing, creating images, or string images. These devices will be collected by the TA (Test Administrator) and will be returned after testing is complete.

    5.    Most students will be testing on their laptops. Therefore, please makes sure your child comes to school with their laptop fully charged. Students should also bring their chargers.

Dear Students and Parents:

Welcome to our 2018-19 school year at Chester High School.  We are excited to embark upon a new year that promises lots of learning for our entire school community.  As demands and complexities of schooling increase, it becomes more evident that we must collaborate to ensure that our children reach their maximum potential.  We believe that all of us – the school and the community – must work together in an extended family environment to insure success for ALL our students.  We believe that everyone in our school community must take ownership of all learning within our building.  We want our students to encompass all skills needed to be successful 21st century learners. 

With this in mind, you are invited to be an active participant at Chester High School.  Whether you are a classroom volunteer, a member of the SIC, or a member of one of our booster clubs, you are encouraged to be involved! 

It is our desire to keep you informed of all that is taking place at school.  Up-to-date and additional information will be sent to you through calls from me or one of our staff members.  If you have questions or concerns that arise at any time, please do not hesitate to give your child’s teacher or me a call.  I look forward to a great school year.  WE ARE CHESTER!!!!!!!!!

Alive at 25, New Requirement for Students who Drive

(From their web site)

"Alive at 25 is a survival course developed by the National Safety Council. It is designed to prevent the #1 killer of teens, automobile crashes. SC Alive at 25 is taught by off-duty Deputy Sheriffs, Municipal Police Officers and SC Highway Patrol Officers. The course is delivered in one 4.5 hour program which focuses on the behaviors, decision-making and risks facing young drivers every time they get behind the wheel.


Since South Carolina's program kicked off in 2007, the state's death toll among drivers 15-24 has dropped by 37%. This reduction is amazing, but one life lost is still one too many. The council developed the Zero Hero campaign to emphasize South Carolina's goal of Zero traffic fatalities among young drivers."

Many schools are requiring students to take the [email protected] class and it will also become a requirement for CHS students next school year in order to purchase a parking pass for school. There is a $35 fee for the course, which can be taken anywhere, but will be offered at CHS and GFHS soon.


Dates for new classes will be updated here and on the CHSCyclones Facebook page.


Students can learn more about the program and register online at
