These students earned this recognition because of their academic achievements in school and outstanding performance on the PSAT/NMSQT®, PSAT™ 10, and/or AP® Exams. They've accomplished these milestones during an immensely demanding period of their high school career. We couldn't be more delighted to share this great news with the CHS community.

Congratulations to these CHS students for their outstanding accomplishments.
It’s spirit week
This is a huge week at CHS. It is the first spirit week of the year. Check out the flyer below for specific theme days.
This Friday is our first assembly back inside Payne gym since 2020! Friday night for the first home football game come to the tennis courts by the senior parking lot for a free pre game tailgate party. Face painting, photo spot, and an inflatable game called Meltdown. Food trucks will be selling food as well.
On Friday, September 9th, we have our first home game and CHS Spirit wear day, “Ohana”. For those of you that are new to Chandler High School, we wanted to take a moment to explain what “Ohana” means and how it became a tradition at CHS. Ohana is defined as the Hawaiian word for family. There tends to be a strong sense of family when growing up in smaller, island towns. In the old days, families in Hawaii tended to be quite large, often four or five (or more) siblings.” Our past award-winning football coach, Shaun Aguano, came from the amazing state of Hawaii and brought with him several of the traditions and cultural celebrations of that area. He saw our teams and campus as an extension of family and wanted to spread that mentality across the school. At the time, we also had several football players of Polynesian descent – as a team, they decided that they wanted to integrate this Hawaiian/Polynesian concept into Chandler High School traditions. As a result, the word and ideology of “Ohana” has taken root on the CHS campus and is celebrated in many events on the campus. The Wolfpack Family is strong and is ever-changing – this celebration of Ohana is just one example of the cultural appreciation we celebrate on our campus. This year, we hope to teach more and more lessons about the importance of Ohana and where that idea came from.

wrestling with the truth
November 5th 10:00-11:00 at the Chandler Public Library, Robert Shegog will be sharing his memoirs. He has given numerous talks about diversity and inclusion, even doing a TED Talk.
Coach Shegog, as we still call him today, is one of the oldest living people with HIV. He received his diagnosis in 1986, five years before Magic Johnson. Treatment and outcomes during this time were so poor that contracting the virus was a death sentence. Coach Shegog lost numerous loved ones to the virus and he suffered multiple bouts with the often fatal opportunistic pneumonias. Yet he persisted. Driven by his passion for wrestling, he needed to make sure his students were on track with their classes, able to graduate high school, and ready to continue their postgraduate pursuits. He knew everything about his kids and made sure they knew nothing about him. They never knew when he was sick. They never met the man he loved. They never knew he had to abstain from some critical wrestling moments to be with his dying partner.
He knew coaching wrestling wouldn’t have been an option had people learned the truth about him in the 1980s, 1990s, and possibly in the 2000s. He lived a lie and did so for the sake of his students. Learn about how Robert Shegog navigated these difficult issues in order to be the teacher, coach, father figure, and exemplary role model that inspired multiple generations of students.

The mission of Unified Sports® is to create an inclusive program that combines individuals with intellectual disabilities (athletes) and individuals without intellectual disabilities (partners) on sports teams for training and competition.

What is Chandler Buddies?
The mission of Chandler Buddies is to create a culture of acceptance and inclusion . This club provides opportunities to build one-to-one friendships between individuals with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities.
Here at CHS we have had a lot of success building and maintaining relationships between students with intellectual disabilities and their non-disabled peers. While participating in Chandler Buddies, students have the opportunity to develop the social skills needed to build social confidence and meaningful friendships. Students are paired using questionnaires and by attending "matching" parties.
How can I get involved?
You can participate in chandler buddies as a Buddy, Peer Buddy or as an Associate Member.
Buddy - Buddies are students with intellectual or developmental disabilities. All Buddies are paired with a Peer Buddy and attend all events. Buddies maintain contact with their Peer Buddy and maintain contact with their Peer Buddy at least once a week.
Peer Buddy - Peer Buddies are matched to Buddies and facilitate the one-to-one friendships. Peer Buddies attend all club events, and maintain contact with their Buddy at least once a week.
Associate Member - Associate members attend all Chandler Buddies meetings and events. They are not paired one-to-one with a Buddy, however, interact with all buddies casually throughout the year.
What activities do Chandler Buddies members participate in?
The club gets together once a month for a variety of activities that includes picnics, game nights, movie nights, holiday parties, lip sync battles, making art for the art show, etc.
If you are selected as a peer buddy, you will be paired up with another student. Peer Buddies and Buddies communicate or socialize at least once a week. This can include phone calls, texts, eating lunch, going to a sporting event, dinner and a movie, video games, etc.
