Chilton is an amazing middle school for the West Roseville area! Jeff Ancker is a very personable and enthusiastic principal who leads an amazing staff of knowledgable and dedicated teachers. The staff always go above and beyond for my 8th grader and the small school environment is just perfect for her. For such a small school, they offer so many great opportunities and bullying and other bad behaviors are rare and dealt with immediately. Overall, I can say enough how great it is to have this school in the neighborhood!
