My daughter attends the early childhood special education program at Chaparral Elementary School and I have been thoroughly impressed with the teachers, staff and PTA. I would recommend this school to other parents looking to select a school for their child in this area.

My daughter started attending preschool here this year and I have been thoroughly impressed with its teachers, staff and principal. Those I have met and seen show they care a great deal for the children that attend here and the future of these kids. I would fully recommend this school to other parents.

Awesome school! I transferred my son out of his home school to this one and haven't had one regret. The teachers and staff are wonderful and really care about the students and their futures.

Because the parents and teachers care sooooo much! Theres a lot of parents who care so much about the school and the kids who attend... the trouble is that the school has little to no money to support the very intelligent kids who go there. Its sad. We need to get more funding into that school so these very bright kids have the resources, equipment and support they need to learn and grow. They are our future. Respectfully- Helen Estrada

The teachers in this school are by far great, caring people. They actually care about the kids. And the new principal is doing a good job too!

I truly enjoy having my children at this school. The school has a lot to offer. They get grants and have alot of technology far beyond what other schools have. I see the parent involvement at the school and feel it is wonderful and hopefully all the kids will stay on track and succeed for many years to come.

I have had good experiences at this school. I have a friend that is a teacher in another district and she has really opened my eyes to realize that teachers, principals, and secretaries are regular human beings like me and are doing the best they can. If you treat them with respect they will do the same. I have never been treated rudely, but I also have never been rude. I really think parents need to step up to the plate and put education first. I was surprise at how many parents I talked to that did not even know the name of their kids teacher!! And some would have their kids do homework at 10:00 at night because they had a baseball game or practice! School has to come first, and it has to start at home.

The school gets special funds for academic improvement. My daughter was in K this year. I don't see where the x-$ goes. The K teachers are all really nice and, my daughter's in particular has done a great job. However, we will transfer to a different school next year. Thanks

Chaparrel Elementary teachers are great, but I feel the office staff and leadership at the school could greatly be improved especially the Principal. She is not the person you would go to if you need help or a situation resolved. The office staff is a direct reflection of her (unfortunately). I would like to thank the teachers that have put forth all their hard work and dedication to make up for some of the schools short falls you are what makes the school great.All star teachers are; Ms. Corona,Ms Abernathy, Ms. V, and Ms Danopolis.

There is no Title 1 help available for my child. After School Programs are only available for the bigger kids and this woorries me. Retaining my child does not seem like the appropriate approach to a good education.

Chaparral is only two years old. The entire staff transferred from another elementary that closed. My children went to school with this staff from kinder to 5th grade. They are both doing great and loved elementary. The staff has done a great job merging the students from four different elementary schools into their new school. There is a sense of pride at Chaparral. I personally know almost all of the staff and they are truly dedicated to the students and work hard to see that they succeed. It takes work from both the school and home to make a student's educational experience great. Keep up the great work at Chaparral!

My daughter attends this school and has consistently fallen behind in her studies. She has only attended this school and has very poor comprehensive and reading skills. I was told repeadly that she would improve but she's now in the 5th grade and her skills have diminished.
