My experience has been , yes the teachers I have come in contact with encourage their students to be aware of their words and actions. Ms. Landis does a wonderful job at modeling this before for her students each day. You always see older students stopping by and getting a hug
Each child has access to the same additional opportunities from Math Stars, iXL, accelerated reader, after school clubs. My child is encouraged to try new things and be honest about her failures and successes. She understands now that her failures can be just as important as her success as she learns what works and what does not. The school is so diverse so interactions with her class mates can range from perfect on one day and her being annoyed or hurt by what was said by a friend. She is learning to make her feelings known and try to talk through the situation with her teacher and her peer.
Our family has been at Chesnut for 4 years now, we have enjoyed it. The teachers have been great always suggesting tools to enhance my child's experience with Coding and math.
Tools such as iXL, reflecx math are available to all students with their own login we utilized it (iXl) during the summer to keep our child on task.
There are extra opportunities like Math Stars and Accelerated reader that you and your child can choose to take part in to enhance their skill sets. We also enjoy the Art our child has made from a hard cover book on Picasso to her yearly framed art pieces.
Yeah I am a fan of Chesnut
Ms. Hobgood has done an excellent job in helping my grandaughter adapt to Chestnut. She loves coming to your class at first it was a struggle for her but she is happy to go to school and proud to do her work.
Chesnut has such a small community feel. We had so much fun at Field Day today. What a great experience for all of the children. Thank you to all of the Chesnut Staff and Teachers for the volunteer parent breakfast. It was wonderful.
