About Us

Chamblee High School (CHS) was established in 1917 and is one of DeKalb County’s oldest schools. CHS was accredited in 1935 and became a Charter School in 2001. We moved into our new building in January 2014 and our Fine Arts building in August 2014. Our mission is to foster the intellectual, social, moral and physical growth of every student. Chamblee High School includes grades 9 -12. The student body is composed of local students, as well as students from the Magnet Program for High Achievers. Our student body is racially balanced, and culturally and economically diverse. Our extensive curriculum serves a variety of programs available at Chamblee. The Magnet Program for High Achievers, the Gifted/Impact Program, Army JROTC, Advanced Placement courses, Move on When Ready, and services for English Learners and students with disabilities allow our students to thrive.

For the more technically oriented student, CHS offers several career pathway programs:

  • A/V Technology & Film
  • Intro to Business & Technology
  • Computer Science
  • Drafting/Engineering Graphics
  • Financial Literacy
  • Foundations of Engineering & Tech

Our excellence is further illustrated by our award winning band, orchestra, chorus, drama, art, photography, student newspaper, literary magazine and yearbook. Our students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of the 65 plus clubs, honor societies, extracurricular activities, and competitive academic teams including Math Team, Science Olympiad, Robotics, We the People, Debate Team, Quiz Bowl, Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl, and Mock Trial. In addition, students at CHS demonstrate a commitment to serving
others at school and in the community.

In athletics, Chamblee competes in Region 4-AAAAA, one of the toughest regions in Georgia. Led by dedicated and professional coaching staffs, our student-athletes thrive both in the classrooms and on the fields and courts.
Our faculty includes 96 teachers, four paraprofessionals, one principal, four assistant principals, four counselors, and one media specialist. A total of 17.4% of our faculty
