Chestnut street school is an excellent school. My daughter was well-prepared for first grade and her Kindergarten teacher was very knowledgeable. She always pushed her to the next level of learning. I was very pleased with her progress in reading and writing. She has developed an extreme love for reading different genres of literature and also enjoyed participating in the PARP (parents as reading partners) program and the PTA reflections program. Her arts project made it to the state level and she was ecstatic and quite honored as a Kindergarten student to reach such a level of distinction. Kudos to Chestnut Street! Keep up the good work!

The school or the Principle s philosophy is no homework! I find this silly; kids need to practice since they will do homework until they graduate from college. Teachers were great but not enough lettering and numbering practice to prepare them for first grade. Pre-k was better for my son.

The faculty and staff are definitely doing their jobs well. My son's teacher is great, maintaining open lines of communication for a family where both parents work. I would like to see a bit more homework,though.

I had absolutely no complaints about the education my son received here. The teachers are caring and kind, and the students really learn.
