Chelsea should be free. It cost a lot of money for no good reason. I had gone to 3 other schools before that were free. Chelsea was the same as them. I did'nt learn better at Chelsea. Some of the teachers are nice and they try to teach you. Other teachers at chelsea yell and make you feel like you are a looser. Some days It was like being in jail. The kids are alright but it is small. I learned more and had a better school life at all my other schools.
I don't think Chelsea is so great. Half teachers are helpful the other half just pass you thru even tho you don't learn or get angry when you can't understand. Not so different than my local public, really. At least my public had a large class where you can meet friends you have things in common with. Not much to do at Chelsea. No track or football, no band, no choir. Hard to tolerate the same 10 kids everyday.
The Chelsea School is a hidden treasusre in Silver Spring. It is a school for students who have language based learning disabilities. However the course work is rigourous and the students excel in many areas. They have an Honor Society, sports teams and a great community outreach program. The students, parents and teachers work together to make Chelsea a great place for students to learn and grow. My son has gone from being a student who didn't care much for school to one who works independently and is excited about going to school each day. I would recommend Chelses to any parent who is looking for a school like Chelsea for their child.
