Map of Chester Elementary School address.

I didn't know it was possible for a school to have such low standards for education. We lived in this backwards town for a year and when we moved my son was very behind where he should have been grade level wise. The school is very large with grades k-8 attending in one building. There is a HORRIBLE lice problem that the principal thinks is normal for a school to have. The only positive aspect was the amazing art teacher, but I'm pretty sure she moved out of this town. I looked into attending one of the private religious schools but their curriculum was just as behind. If you have any choice, don't live in chester and of you do homeschool!
