My child recently entered Kindergarten about 1 month ago. So far, it is clear to me that the principal and teachers are very concerned about the upcoming standardized testing (state/district tests). I'm hoping that this same energy is placed on the overall academics and not only towards achieving high test scores. It's a bit early yet, however I will be updating my comments towards the end of the semester.

The best school of my life, where I studied the fifth grade, a beautiful time of my life.
I attended Chapman Elementary from preschool until 5th grade. It is a wonderful school. The teachers all genuinely care about you. They will do as much as they can to help you. I love how they made learning fun(: I remember I would visit my teachers and they all remembered me :] I'm now in 8th grade and Chapman definitely prepared me for middle school. I would recommend Chapman to anyone!
I have two children at Chapman and every teacher has been a blessing. The principal is all about the students, education, and involvement. What also impresses me is the way the PTA, the teachers, and the staff work together to improve the school. One of the few schools in the area to receive the California Distinguished School Award this year.
Don't be fooled....this is an excellent school...The principal, teachers and staff are so caring...The Beyond the Bell staff is great.. I really liked that the school is so diverse. My son only attended one year as a Kindergarten student and he loved it. He certainly got a great start by attending Chapman Elementary.
Great principle, great teachers, my child loves it and shes learned so much.
Chapman Elementary School is a very excellent school . That is my opinion.. The teachers,principals & the rest of the staff members are the greatest with the children
Chapman is a great school. The admin staff & teachers really care about the students. Chapman reminds me of my elementary school back in the '70s. I wish I had sent my oldest child there instead of private school. I just wish they could incorporate music into the curriculum and organic foods into the breakfast/lunch menu. Other than that, its excellent!
This is actually a very good school. The teachers sincerely care about the students and it shows in the students performance. Parents are encouraged to participate and there are many activities that students can share with them. There aren't as many extracurricular activities as I would like, however the faculty more than makes up for it in what they do have.
My daughter started at Chapman in 2nd grade and we've had an exceptional experience. All of her teachers were challenging and encouraging. I appreciated the support and resources provided at every level to achieve academic and social milestones. The students were great. Chapman is one of the last schools standing that expects the best out of each student. Chapman allows your children to actually be kids. My only challenge with Chapman is the options of extracurricular activities. Ms. Hite, the Principal, has been nothing short of a blessing to the District. She is always available for consultation and goes above and beyond to assist in any way she can. She successfully manages the educational & social needs of the children, the preservation & maintenance of the facility and the needs of the faculty to the best of her ability with the resources and opportunities given. Chapman was a wonderful adventure.
Chapman Elementary is a great school. My daughter attended from 2nd to 5th grade and was always very happy to be there. The teachers there are always very enthusiastic and it shows that they enjoy what they do. The teachers always made it fun to learn by incorporating interesting projects into the curriculum which motivates the students to research and learn. I would definitely recommend this school!
I am a proud previous student of Chapman, the thing I remember most from my years there, are my teachers. They taught me to be the best that I can be and always go forward with my dreams. The staff at Chapman was just as awesome. I will always remember them throughout my life. This is a wonderful school! ~Amanda S. ~culminating class of 1998!
I would like to thank Chapman Elementary for its committment to excellence and for reinforcing in my children the importance of being the best that they can be.
Chapman is a great school! All office staff, teachers, coaches, janitors and playground staff are awesome. They work very hard to keep this school in the great shape it's in. Everyone there is always trying to find new ways to help our children in every aspect of their lives.
