My son started at this school mid-year and had no problem adjusting to this very well run school. He had a wonderful kindergarten teacher and really they all seemed great! Principal was involved in everything. My son loved going to school EVERY day so that says a lot! My only complaint would be that the office staff were not very personable but maybe they are just too busy?

Chelsea Park Elementary is a wonderful school - it's a great place to work and a good learning environment for students. The teachers have a genuine desire to teach and are always seeking new ways to make learning enjoyable. I am very blessed to work with such talented and caring people!

I like the school, it is very clean and nice. Has tons of technology and educational tools. Our teacher is not proactive, we always seem to be behind the other classes. In addition, I know of two students who have been left outside accidentally. I agree the security is very lenient, which is a concern.

We love this school because although it is a large elementary school, we still have a since of community in all the grades. Our school hosts many functions such as a Fall Festival, The Buzz Run, Poetry Slam, Field Day, etc. Overall this is a great school to work at and be a student at.

This is a great modern elementary school. It has up to date technology and supplies and the best, most loving teachers in the state. The school is really involved in the community as well as the community is equally involved in the school. It's a great school to be a part of.

The teachers at CPES are very nice. But it lacks in education. It is so far behind our old school. Both of my kids are bored. The security is very lenient. I have checked my children out without having to show ID.

Chelsea Park is a very friendly and very family involved school. I especially like that they have programs like Literacy League that encourages parents to volunteer to spend time helping children with their reading with one on one reading time. The quality of teachers at Chelsea Park is tremendous also. Every teacher that my two girls have had there have been extraordinary. Thanks to all at the school ;that work so hard to make it a great experience. S. Peterson
