This will our 3rd year and the teachers we have had so far, while having a lot of experience, seem to have somewhat checked out and don't seem to be interested in being there. The staff is professional however I don't know if it is due to the size of the school or just the teachers we have had but I would say the school is average at best.

Teachers, admin and PTA are so involved in keeping this school a positive environment and having students achieve the best they can with all the bells and whistles possible. My son loves it and my 6 month old even enjoys the districts parent tot program at the school. There were a few bad teachers with a bad reputation. But looks like they've been moved elsewhere in the district. They do listen!

My daughter has done exceptional in this school and we are very happy with the level of education she has gotten, and her teachers compassion for their students in Kindergarten and 1st grade. She tested 99% in their MAP tests both years, and that is because of the teachers dedication and hard work! We are sad to be leaving May Chesak as my daughter LOVES it there and looked forward to going each and every day. I HIGHLY recommend it!

Great School academically wise... School lacks certain extras ie plays/performances due to its large student body. This is unfortunate, since we all would like to see the age group k-2 on stage.

My child attends Chesak and my other children have attended that school as well. I have been impressed with the quality of academic programs and believe District 158 works hard at being one of the best school districts in the NW Suburbs. As far as availability of extracurricular activities, we are haveing financial struggles in the district due to enormous residential growth in the district. I believe this is one of the most growing areas in the state. As a result of the financial hardships we have had to cut alot of the extracurricular activities. As far as the level of parent involvement, there are opportunities to get involved. There are meetings where they ask you to come and be heard, teachers always need help in the classroom, the PTA is another way to get involved. We are very happy in District 158 and believe we are getting a quality education.

My daughter attended all day kindergarden last year. I t was the best thing for her. She also has a great teacher for 1st grade. D158 has done an excellent job managing an exeptional program on a limited budget. My daughter could not have a more positive outlook on school thanks to the teachers and staff at Cheasak.

My daughter attended the first year of full-day kindergarten last year and it was exceptional. She is reading well and was able to spend time in music, art and p.e. everyday. The teachers at Chesak are fantastic. Her Kindergarten teacher had 14 years of teaching experience. Another review talked about the bell times. The bell time change is for a different school (Martin Elementary 3-5) and were necessary cuts after the spring referendum narrowly failed. I applaud the district for making cuts, although difficult, that will not comprimise the high quality of education. The referendum vote will happen again in the fall and will likely pass with great parent support. This will greatly improve the future financial situation of this excellent school district. I am so happy that my daughter is receiving her education in d158.

The school district is in major debt and with no forseeable way out other than for the state to take over. I am concerned about the bell times. My children will be getting out of school at 5:00 p.m. and not home until 5:30 or later. It is dark here and that is unsafe. This is one of the solutions the board decided to reduce the debt. The teachers are great. The principal is great. The school itself is wonderful. It is the district unfortunately that has the problem and therefore so do all of the schools within the district.

My girls have done extremely well in this school. There is a nice mix of older, experienced teachers vs. new teachers with boundless energy. I love when my children come home at the end of the day and can't wait for the next. They are doing what other schools have not.

My son is going on his 3rd year at Chesak and I can't say enough about the school, the teachers, and the great education he is receiving. I am confident he is getting the foundation to many years of continious education as he moves forward through the school's of dist. 158. Thank you.
