Patterson is such a warm and friendly learning environment. I transferred my child from an only CTA school to Patterson which has a choice of a Traditional or Classic curriculum. The atmosphere is extremely loving and not sterile or high pressure that I felt at the other CTA campuses. I have seen my child thrive this school year. I appreciate how the principal is never slacking when it comes to the safety of her students. I have recommended this school to friends and family!!!
As a parent of two students at Patterson Elementary, I just wanted to say what a supportive, effective school it is. The children feel comfortable and free to express themselves without fear bullying from other students because of the character-building that goes on each day at school. I am very impressed with this school and happy to send my children off each morning, knowing that they are well-taken care of and taught as much as their minds can hold!
My children have attended Patterson Elementary since the school opened! I am very pleased with the well rounded education my children have received. The administration is very supportive of the families and the staff. Teachers go above and beyond each and every day to make my children's learning authentic and exciting! Thank you for all you do!
Patterson Elementary is a terrific school. As a parent, I have witnessed how the teachers go above and beyond for their students. They genuinely care about the kids. I have had wonderful interactions with the principal, office staff, and nurse. My whole family feels as if we are part of the Patterson Elementary family. We are looking forward to another great year when we return in July.
I have many friends whose children attend Patterson. They are continually telling me this school has a great staff. I have attended several events at Patterson and I am amazed by the friendly atmosphere created by both staff and students. Activities are both educational and family fun orientated for all age groups. Check this school out, you won't be disappointed!
This school has been great. Sure, the teachers are tough, but it is school and it is good for kids to understand that learning comes first. We have had a great experience and would recommend the Patterson Classic prorgram to anyone.
My wife and I moved into Chandler from a neighboring district just so our kids could attend Chandler schools. Charlotte Patterson certainly makes the move worth it! The school is extremely clean and shows a sense of pride among the students and staff. I've never walked into the office and not felt welcome. The principal is always visible and very involved, I've seen her giving personal tours of the school to potential parents and students numerous times. I love having the flexibility to choose between the CTA program and the classic program. All of the teachers I've had experiences with truly seem to love their jobs and care about their students. I also enjoy being a part of a school that expects the students to always do their best and everyone is held accountable for their actions.
This school is great. Teachers are strict. However, when I volunteer my time, I over hear the other teachers complain that the Principal is very controlling to her teachers and children. The halls are so quiet during the day. Can't hear a peep!
From the administration, faculty & staff, to the parent volunteers, this school is a breath of fresh air! I am so amazed by the way the teachers engage and really dive in to help their students. I really believe in this school because the entire school community goes above and beyond to invest in the students in the aspects of academics, character, and leadership. The Principal is not afraid to have fun with the kids and has created a great relational culture at the school. I would definitely recommend Charlotte Patterson Elementary to any family.
Patterson is a wonderful school ! The quality of the teachers go above and beyond, as does the staff. The office is welcoming, appealing and friendly. It is a great first impression of the school. The parent involvement is unsurpassed. Having the choice between classic and cta is a plus for families who have children with different learning needs. I would highly recommend this school to any family looking for a quality education in a great environment!
Ok school! It gets a big fat 0 when it comes to safty! Needs a 3-way stop sign at the corner of Dunbar and Adora Blvd! Needs to be zoned.."School Zone".And a "No Cell Phone "Zone!
This school does have good teachers, however the principal is highly controlling and the school is not open to visitors or parent participation in all aspects of the day.
This is our first year at Patterson, and we transferred in from a neighboring district. Our kids and we could not be happier with the environment and the curriculum that this school offers. There is an obvious caring for the students, and the teachers are experienced, patient and fully invested in their students' outcomes. We chose the Traditional Program for our 2nd grader and kinder, and have been amazed with how much they have learned so far. My 2nd grader had to basically re-learn everything that had been taught his first two years at our former school, and with commitment from my son and his teacher, he is scoring well and has strong social and educational support. I feel that he is finally being challenged to succeed. Socially, there is a positive atmosphere throughout the school, and the parents are welcome to be involved as much as they want to. The communication is frequent and constructive.The principal is kind, professional and engaged with the families. Her front office staff are friendly and helpful. I can't say enough wonderful words about this school. We are so glad that we are here!
This is my son's second year at this school and we are VERY happy here! I love that the school offers both the Chandler Traditional Academy(CTA) and classic pathways to choose from. The teachers have all been great and the principal is very involved and active with the kids.
We made the difficult decision to change schools mid-year. However, we couldn't be happier at Charlotte Patterson. The Principal and staff have been very helpful with the transition. I can't say enough kind words about my daughter's teacher. Finally, my daughter is getting challenged to her ability. It is amazing what she is learning:)
I moved from out of state into Patterson and could not be more thrilled with this school. It is still new and hopefully will be rated at a 10 (which it deserves) soon. The school is great on all levels. The academics are outstanding and the staff is caring on all levels, from the principal to the teachers to the cafeteria staff. It is not your average school but a wonderful school in a top notch district!
Very good school. However, one would expect the AIMS scores for this school to be in the 90s for all grade levels and subject matters but that is not the case. The scores are good but in Arizona, anything below 90% on these tests is a bit concerning. They do a great job but can improve.
Our son was at Patterson for Kindergarten in the CTA program. We absolutely love the school, staff if friendly and welcoming. Parent involvement is regularly saught. I wish there were transportation for those of us out of district, we'll have to switch schools this year due to such a long comute:(
All i can say about this school is WOW! I also had our child in another school in the same district so I was not expecting such a contrast. It just goes to show that when brilliant minds work together there can be some amazing results. The principal here makes all the difference she thinks outside the box.
Love this school! Principal is wonderful, office staff is wonderful. This is our first year but teachers have been the best as we have been in another school in the same district, so I have the experience of a different school and it by far the best experience. Very, very happy!
