My son is going into the second grade and we both love this school. My son has gotten many rewards from the great teaching from this school. Thank you to all the teachers. Ms. Newbold, 1st grade, and Ms. Cote. The principal Ms. Gellier is great with all the kids. Thank you Chase Ave.

My son is a 4th grader at Chase and we both love this school! He loves his teachers from kindergarten to 4th grade. They are all great and they really focus on his academic strengths and weaknesses to help him become a better student. The extended day program (Ms. Tina :-)) is awesome! They help my son with his assignments and a provide a safe and fun enviorment for parents like myself who need after school support.

My daughter is in the fifth grade and she loves this school! She has been at Chase since she was in kindergarten. She gets strait A's every semester, and it is all because of her kindergarten,first grade, second grade, third grade,fourth grade and fifth grade teachers.If you ever want to know where to send your children for elementary school,Chase is the one! My daughter is in safety patrol,garden club,W.I.T kids and the science club. All of those programs are for any age except for safety patrol (which is for fifth graders only).There is also heart light,math tutoring, learning together groups and computer lab groups.Chase is great! The teachers really care about your child's learning,but the only bad part about that is when they become such great friends with your children, that you'll miss the teachers.The principal makes it all happen. She loves working at Chase, you can tell. The playground is really big,considering that it is has a dirt field attached to it. You can play Wall ball,(my daughter's favorite game)Kickball, Two square,Four square,Basketball,Tether ball,Jump rope or you could just talk to your friends and have a snack. This is not only smart and awesome,it's safe.

My son has just started kindergarten at Chase school and my daughter who is now in tenth grade attended there also. I was very happy with all of my daughters teachers. The parent/teacher communication is excellent. My son's kindergarten teacher is Ms. Miller. She is an excellent teacher who loves what she does. She is very caring and loving but at the same time keeps the kids on the right track. She will discipline but is very quick to praise when the child improves. I just know that my son will have a great kindergarten experience with a super teacher!

Chase is a leader in the district for innovative programs. Their teachers are caring and high quality. Most of them have been at the school for many years. Students at Chase are treated like members of the family. Family Reading Nights are fabulous!

The quality of academics at Chase Ave is very high, my son learned so much at this school. The level of parent/ parent and parent/ teacher communication is excellent. I also found the staff to be extremely helpful - this was especially important since we moved from out of state. There are also so many extracurricular activities offered, a single child could not participate in all.

I love this school! It is now a California Distinguished school. The principal is very friendly and involved. The teachers are great! They try to make school enjoyable for the children while working with the new guidelines. They try to do extra things with the kids during the year like special reading nights where prizes are given out for reading and taking AR tests. Any time I have had a concern about one of my sons (who are now in 3rd and 4th grade) they have have taken it seriously and made sure that it was resolved to everyone's satisfaction. The only thing I wish is that they had more funding for music, art, and physical education programs.

This school has a great parent/teacher relationship. The teaches and resource specialist at Chase have continued to monitor my daughters progress from 1st grade until the 4th with such care and enthusiasm that I cannot express my gratitude for the help. They have always throiugh budget cuts and all maintained an after school program for math and reading. Also the school nurse Ms. Lucy is very interactive with the parents and has a sharp eye for spotting problems with students they can pop up from time to time. They have a great faculty from the Principal right down to the office secretaries. I have been extremely pleased with the overall performance of Case Ave School. Its a culturally and economically diverse school, with plenty of parent involvement.
