My husband and I contemplated private school for our son before kindergarten and ultimately decided to go to a public school for various reasons. We have been so happy with Chancey Elementary and comment regularly how we are glad we didn't go the private route. Our son's teachers have been amazing and he has progressed and learned so much since entering Chancey (he is now in 1st grade). I have been in his classrooms and have never had any problems going to help out as long the teacher was aware in advance I would be there. The staff is always friendly, welcoming and the administration is excellent; personable and professional. I know in other school districts bringing siblings into classrooms for holiday parties etc.. is not allowed, Chancey welcomes younger siblings with open arms. Overall we have been extremely happy and impressed with our experience at this school.

I overlooked multiple red flags, but one situation led to my transfer application. This is my child's first year in school after being homeschooled for kinder. I want to help support her school success & thought a good starting point would be to observe the flow of her day in the classroom. I was turned away twice. Even after giving 24-hr notice I was told - my visit wasn't approved - it violates other students' privacy - parents are critical - observations are a disruption THEN I was asked what type of work I do that afforded me time to come observe my child's classes an entire day??? Say what?!? I kindly explained that if my child was seeing one teacher a day as opposed to 4+ I wouldn't be observing for an entire day. In any case, I was surprised I was asked to justify & apply for approval to observe in my 6-year-old's class for a day? I can trust you w/my child but you don't trust yourself enough to have me sit in the back of your class while you teach? That's scary. Not consistent with school law or even best practices for parental involvement. Consider revising your policy.

I am a teacher at Chancey. Not only do staff members care deeply about academically challenging each child, we care about educating the whole child. We work hard to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of each child. Our boss is by far the best in JCPS!

I am a father of two Chancey students. We are very happy there. Everything from the Chancey garden, daddy-daughter dance, pilgrim's play all give my children a better than great experience. I feel education is important, but it's not just a school concerned with numbers on standarized tests but identifying the needs of the students. The principal is wonderful!!!!!

We love Chancey! Unfortunately, we're moving out of state and have one primary student left. We've been there since the beginning, and it gets better every year. You will not be disappointed sending your child here. There is not one bad review on this site. No school is perfect, but Chancey is close. There is art, music foreign lauguage, technology, basketball, cheerleading, health club, chess club, science enrichment, great teachers, organized learning, great and personable staff, award winning PTA, awesome leadership . . . I just can't say enough. We'll miss it dearly. Go Chancey Cardinal Champions!

We too have been Chancey Cardinals since the school opened (in fact, that's my son in the little red pants on Chancey's homepage...he's a 3rd grader now!!) Chancey is an awesome school, fabulous teachers, wonderful PTA. Mrs. Cosby, the principal, is the best...very personable, affectionate with the kids AND stern! We love Chancey.

I have a 11 year old son that attends Chancey, and he Loves it! We had just moved here from Centerville, Ohio, which had an excellant school district and I was worried about putting him into a new school. I was very impressed with Chancey!!The staff is so courteous and friendly! The school is so well kept, and very up to date with computer technology, in the class room and throughout the school. My sons teacher was great in keeping me well informed on how well he was doing in his studies. Great school!

I have 3 children atttending Chancey from Preschool, Kindergarten and third grade. The school is very clean and the staff is courteous. The teachers and staff have always gone out of their way to help my children out. I have one child who is in the Gifted and Talented program and he is thriving at Chancey where he was not at another local school. They have an emphasis on respecting others that surpasses all other schools that I have observed. Their preschool program is warm cheerful and a great plus!

I have a frist grader and have been at Chancey for two years. We are VERY happy with the school, the faculty, the quality of the programs and technology. It just keeps getting better! In addition to the academics, the school is so new,clean, bright and cheery! All the children seem very respectful and well-behaved. I have been pelased with the parental involvement and the extra curricular activities as well. The techers that we have had have been excellent and I could not have asked for more in a teacher or the leadership of the school. We love seeing all the chilren in uniforms. It brings such unity and tidyness. The children all seem to really get along and care for each other with a very good diversity in students cultures and backgrounds. I have really been impressed with the quality of the education!
