Chestnut Hill Community School has great facilities. The teachers and staff are friendly professional and helpful. However, I am truly disappointed in the school. It has so much potential for success but fell short of the mark. There seems to be such a big focus on testing that there is little time left for learning. The children can take a test and pass it but they have no understanding of the material. They are unable to build a solid foundation onto which they can add on knowledge and make new connections. The teachers and staff are respectful professionals and provide communication but it is not enough. At the beginning of the school year, the open house was an informal meet and greet with the teachers and a look around the school. There was no presentation from the school, no introduction to the staff, meeting the principal, or guidance counselors. There was no Welcome to our school: this is what we are looking forward to this year. There have been no other meetings to go over the school goals, fundraisers, or answer questions parents may have: common core, curriculum etc.. How are parents supposed to be invested in the school, if the school is not invested in the parents?

We have just moved to the area and my son is in Mrs Dupras' 4th grade class. We are very pleased with the school as well as his teacher. She has a daily report card so you know if there are any issues, which I feel is great! The kids have been welcoming and my son has adjusted well. The teachers and principal are friendly, we couldn't be more happy!

I was in the 2nd class to graduate the 8th grade after the school was built. I felt the builders did a great job. The teachers were top notch. Because of some of the teachers I have had there I went on to follow my dreams because they were so inspiring and supportive.

Chestnut Hill Community School has a faculty that goes above and beyond their jobs. I have both a special needs child and children without disabilities and they have all flourished with the staff and are well prepared for junior high.
