Map of Emma C Chase School address.

School is too small! The students are cramped, they have no storage or cafeteria. Students have to eat their lunch in their classroom, which does not allow any time for a child to socialize freely. The gym teacher is not qualified to instruct physical education. The gym teacher has a limp and can not show students how to do a proper stair climb, but gets angry and sits them out if they do it poorly. Most of the teachers are "grandfathered" in, have no patience or compassion toward the students. These teachers should probably retire, and make way for more vibrant, lively teachers! The aids the school hires are not fit and probably should have their background checks run more closely.

Chase is not only dedicated to its students, but to the community as a whole. It's a place where families come together to learn, socialize, and participate in the various activities that are offered throughout the school. Through the hard work and dedication of the staff at Chase, I'm confident that my children will have the best education possible.

Not only did I go there, but my children also do to. Chase school is the backbone to our community. Without it, we have nothing.

It is a true 'community' school, everyone looks after every child, regardless of whether or not they are the child's teacher or not.

Impressive school. Putting off an out-of-state move until the children have completed Chase.
