Chase ES is an amazing school that my children, as well and I, LOVE! The Principal, teachers and staff go above and beyond to teach and care for the students and it really feels like a family. I know a lot of people lie to transfer to other ES in the area but I just can't understand why - if they would only give Chase a chance they would see all the SUPER things being offered for the young minds!

I've known Chase Elementary's new Principal, Doug Elmendorf, for a long time. You're going to like him alot.

The entire staff is friendly and truly care about the students and families of Chase Elementary. They know all students by their name and know their parents too. My oldest son went to 4 elementary schools and Chase was by far the best that he attended. They welcomed him and made him feel right at home when we moved. They also went above and beyond when we lost everything we owned in Hurricane Isabel. They worked with the county to ensure that the bus was re-routed to our temporary home so that he could continue to attend Chase and collected supplies and clothes for us to help with the devastation.

I am a mother of three girls who graduated from Chase Elementary. Yes, this elementary is the best in quality, trustworthiness, highest level of involvement, safety and discipline. The principal and the staff are great in leadership of parents and students alike. They are very helpful and kind to all.

Chase Elementary School is one of the best in the area. The principal and staff are very helpful and kind. The staff works well with the parents/guardians; the highest level of involvement. I have three children who graduated from this school. The leadership and teacher quality is the highest. Safety and discipline is the highest also. Academic programs, availability of music, art, sports, and other extracurricular activities is number 1.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Maryland used the Maryland School Assessment (MSA) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The MSA is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Maryland. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test.
