Julie Patterson, the director of School Counseling at Chatham High, usually gives the presentation during the Superintendent's Report. The report includes information on how many graduates go to four-year colleges, how many prefer the SATs to the ACTs, and other information on how Chatham High students use the school to prepare for the next phase of their lives.
