My child attended chestnut street school and is now attending cornwell elementry. I feel that my child was very well prepare to enter the first grade, the teachers and staff were great . My child has only good memories of the school wish he has now pasted on to his little brother who will be attending in the fall.
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.
