I attended chesterfield school and graduated a few years ago. This is the best elementary school in the area. The professionalism and caringness of each teacher is second to none. The student/teacher ratio is impressive, giving each student the care he/she needs. I am one of four brothers who went through this school and we all went into high school well prepared. Instrumental and Choral music programs are available, as well as a strong focus on the four main sports. I strongly suggest looking further into Chesterfield school for your son/daughter.
