Chandler Learning Academy is a truly great school! The PTA president, the principal, the teachers and PTA parents are incredibly dedicated individuals that work well together to create a quality education and caring community for the students.
In first grade the average night of homework is about 20 minutes plus an additional 20 minutes of reading. The amount of homework is enough to develop solid work habits but not too much to be overwhelming. The E3 after school program does a phenomenal job of supervising homework. The students who matriculate from Chandler are very well prepared for Middle School. Many of our students attend the magnet programs at Millikan and Walter Reed. We have also had students matriculate to the most competitive private middle school in the area, Harvard Westlake.
Chandler Learning Academy does weekly Monday morning assemblies where the principal publicly recognize children for being respectful, honest and responsible. This motivates students and creates a culture of honesty, integrity and fairness.
The principal, teachers and PTA are really dedicated to create a great learning experience for all students. My son has made many great neighborhood friends, enjoys going to school and is doing very well academically. The E3 after school program, which is new this year, is amazing. The students have a different enrichment classes every day, complete their homework and have a lot of fun playing outside.
There has been very little turn-over of teachers at Chandler and most of the teachers send their own children to the school. The teachers are experienced, nurturing and know how to get the best out of each student.
Teachers and administrators are completely honest about students's academic and socio-emotional development. If students are not performing at grade level, the teachers will both communicate with parents and work hard with the students and parents to improve the work habits and socio-emotional development of the children.
