My son went to Chapman four years ago and his experience couldn't have been better. I was the room mom both years and saw a lot that went on and how the teachers cared about all of their students. This year my daughter is in 5th grade at Chapman and my experience is the same. Parental involvement is not a good as in elementary school but there are still a ton of volunteers for everything. My daughter's teachers are all top notch. I haven't heard of any bullies but if my daughter was being picked on, I would make sure it didn't happen twice and feel confident the problem would be taken care of. I would make sure I got more involved. The staff welcomes volunteers with open arms and makes sure you know they appreciate you.
Chapman's 5/6 grade environment has been a wonderful experience for my two children. It has challenged them academically and helped them to become more organized and better prepared for middle school. There are extracurricular activities available in art, music, drama and basketball. The teachers and administration have adapted to the continuous increase in student enrollment to the best of their abilities. The PTA supports the administration and encourages parental communication, for which they have received recognition from the Georgia PTA. I would recommend Chapman for anyone wanting to expose their child to the economic and cultural diversity of the real world, while still within the safety of a public school setting.
This is my first year at Chapman and it has been a wonderful experience. This school has a great principal, great teachers and wonderful parent involvement.
The quality of most of the teachers has been shockingly poor. Music, Art, Sports are average, level of parent involvement is good, with all of the disadvantages with miscommunication with teachers, Big problem with bullies there additional tutoring needed each year, I do not recommend Chapman.
My son is a 6th grader this year. He is a wonderful child who does have a reading disability and some processing issues. Most of his teachers have encouraged my communication and, so far, this has been an excellent year. However, the language arts curriculum needs some work so that it can help students with language based disabilities.
My daughter has had a wonderful experience at Chapman. She has been given the chance to advance at her own speed and has been encouraged to excel by her teachers. They have prepared her for ET Booth by fostering her independence. We have been blessed with excellent teachers in both the 5th and 6th grade.
Chapman, as a whole, is a suppportive, caring school because of its dedicated teachers and assitant principals. The physical environment of the school, however, makes for a depressing place to educate children. Additionally, much of the educational programming is geared toward 'teaching to the test' and leaves little time for those teachable moments that make learning fun. Chapman definitely follows a 'middle school' schedule, so parents, do prepare your incoming fifth graders who were pampered in elementary school. They'll need to be well organized.
I have had 2 boys attend Chapman, and during 5th grade, both struggled. After the high level of interest shown by the elementary school teachers, the apparent ambivalence of the teaching staff was disappointing. This is not a horrible school - safety and discipline seem to be high priorities - but overall, it is an average school at best.
This is a great school, unfortunately not the best teachers are here. My child has had some problems with a certain teacher. Overall I would say this school is a great school.
My son has ADHD and a learning disability. My experince has all been positive. The teachers have all been interested in helping with our needs. As with any school, frequent communicaton with the teachers is vital to a positive outcome.They have raised his selfesteem. I have heard more compliments about his character instead if focusing on the negative ones.He was failing math last year to an A average now. This has been my sons best year.
It is unfair to judge a school by one disgruntled parent's comment. My children have had a wonderful experience at Chapman, so have the children of my neighbors and friends.
My child had to be taken out of this school and home schooled after his arm was broken twice at this school and nothing was done to the culprits responsible. The year before he had been elbowed in his neck by a girl and nothing was done to her either. Child safety is apparently not their concern.
