This is a great school and all but the problem is that in the new neighborhood there are some bad people I saw 2 kids smoking under the age, when I first drove into the neighborhood kids where throwing rocks at my car. Good school but not that good area.

One of the best elementary school in northern Burlington county.A lot of parents and teachers involvement in every academic and cultural activity. It's been a smooth transition for my son from this school to middle school. My son is doing great in middle school, he's been in the high honor roll list, officer in school student Congress and has a major part in school's musical. Thanks to the teachers and administrators of Chesterfield Elementary School!!

Don't be fooled by the nice new building because the quality of education, in my opinion, is sub-standard. The handful of teachers I have come in contact with are very quick to tell you about how great the school is, their advanced degrees, and training but fail to answer basic questions about the curriculum and how familiar they were with the material and programs used. I get the impression that some teacher's have been "bounced around" through grades which doesn't give me a good feeling either. Any questions I had were never completely answered to my satisfaction and only after a follow up question was I told it was discussed at the open house and the policy they follow is not written. On a positive note, the parents appear to be involved which is nice to see for a change. Needless to say I am not impressed. Chesterfield Elementary is NOT the educational frontrunners they would like everyone to think they are.

Overall it's a great school and we've been pretty happy with the school. I'm glad this is K-6. Hope they make this Middle school as well by the time my daughter starts middle school.

Glad my daughter is going to Chesterfield Elementary school. It's one of the best school in north Burlington county. Teachers pay attention to each kid and glad to see how quickly she's learning new thing every day.

We moved to the school district a few years ago. We heard great things, but have been so disappointed. The teachers/staff that we have encountered are there to collect a check and do nothing more. They do not care about going above and beyond or even meeting the children's basic academic needs. We moved from a different district and we feel that they are about 2 years behind educationally. If we had the ability to get up and move, we would. It is a sorry excuse for a school. In addition, there are very few extra-curricular activities. It doesn't feel like a close-knit school. While there are a few gems within the staff, overall, I would rate this as a very poor academic setting. In addition, I recently learned that they have a horrible special education program. If you have a child with special needs, avoid this school!

If you trust the bell curve and assume your kid is closer to the average than not (i.e. strong in some areas, weak in others) then its and excellent school that cannot be beat in a similar property price range in NJ. The teachers are young, enthusiastic and bring a fresh perspective using the latest materials and curriculum (e.g. Everyday Math). They're using methods that, while being controversial, are proven to maximize overall benefit to the largest number of kids - these are NOT jaded/older teachers approaching retirement counting down the days- Chesterfield teachers are earnestly trying to make a deep positive impact in kids lives daily (of course their perspective may change 20 years from now!) The facilities are brand new and the atmosphere disciplined. Now, on the other hand, if you think that your kid is likely some sort of genius child prodigy with 150 IQ (odds greatly against), then probably you need to look a little further North to the "little Ivy's". Something that makes this school unique is that its right in the middle of the new and growing housing subdivision that provides approximately 90% of the kids.

Wonderful and caring environment for kids and their education. My two kids are doing quite well and are lucky to have had three wonderful teachers at Chesterfield Elementary. The school combines the best of an old time country type schooling atmosphere (not an overly academic mindset and very interested in connecting students to their environment and to their community) with the developing challenges of a 21st century education. The teachers do most of their professional development on their own and are using cutting edge technology effectively and also new strategies to engage students in traditional and emerging habits and skills. The school itself is beautiful and sits in the middle of the communities of crosswicks and chesterfield.

It is absolutely terrible. The teachers are clueless about what they are supposed to be teaching. The Computer program is terrible too. The principal should not even be their. It was a terrible experience for both me and my kids. Its a relief that it is over and they are now in the middle school, which is a great school, much different from the elementary school.

This is definetly the little school with the big heart! I can not say enough about the quality of education that our children receive at this school. The curriculum could easily be compared to that of some of the best private schools in the state. Our children have been given the opportunity explore world language, art and a top notch computer program at the Kindergarten level. I can understand why this school ranks so high in ratings, the teachers and staff deserve it! The parents and PTA members are an integral part of this school community that continually turn out well run programs and events. It is a joy to have children that love school as much as Chesterfield children do. Keep up the great work!
