We have been very satisfied with this school compared to the one our children was in last year. The staff is very friendly and willing to offer any help they can for the students and parents as well.

My daughter is in Kindergarten at Chicod. The teachers are super nice and hard-working. All parents are welcome to come by anytime and I love this. Great school.

Have you seen the construction. it will be sad to see the old building go down, but it will be exciting to get a brand new school.

Great school. Teachers care about kids and it's what a K-8 is all about. The plans for the construction and new building will be exciting. Check out their Facebook Page at Chicod School. The PTA is very active, be sure to join it.

my 2 doughters entered this school last year they are excellent academically but i'm not pleased at first grade math it puzzles t he kids insted of teaching them the core of math the "plus and minuse"! and the teacher at first grade tells the kids what to write and what to do without useing their minds! insted of teaching them how to think ,they are like robots there!.About second grade classes they are outside the school ! it means at winter the kids have to walk in wind,rain and mud to use the school facilities inside the school like the bathroom! P.E.,art,library,lunch room and so on !

My son attended this school from Kindergarten through the end of seventh grade. He received an excellent education in a great community environment. We weren't from the area but he was still for the most part accepted and treated the same as the other kids. The K-8 school is the absolute best learning situation to put your child in. Parent involvement is very high at this school. My son is honors student in high school and it all started with a wonderful beginning at Chicod.

I love the K-8 setting! I have had 3 kids go through Chicod School and they are doing well in high school and college. They were given a great education at Chicod by teachers that really care about their students and work hard to make their lessons relevant so that the students enjoy going to school and learning. There is always excitement in the halls! It has managed to remain a wholesome environment for children. Keep up the good work Chicod!

My child just entered Chicod in second grade. What an awesome experience. I think that the education he has received here is superior. It has been a great transition. I would reccomend it to any parent.

Both my children attend Chicod, with my oldest in the 5th grade. I have to admit, I'm a little shocked that there are any negative comments about this school. People have to be realistic and understand that not every teacher is perfect, nor are our children perfect. My family's personal experiences at Chicod have likewise, not always been perfect, but overall this is a wonderful school and a great place for children to be educated. My children love this school and have expressed their devastation at the sheer prospect of moving. They take great pride in their school and us as parents should do the same. It is a small, rural school (K-8), but for those who attend, we wouldn't have it any other way.

This is my daughter's first year of school. We have had a wonderful experience. We couldn't ask for a better teacher. She tailors the educational needs to the student. My daughter was ahead in spelling and reading, so she gives her different words and books than the rest of the class. Wonderful school!!

This will be our daughter's fourth year at Chicod. Both of us are/have been teaching for the past fourteen years and have moved through several school systems as teachers/parents. Chicod has been the best fit for our daughter! It is very family oriented and full of wonderful teachers. Plus, the principal is awesome.

This year was my childrens first year at Chicod and was a very bad experience. Yes, academically the school is where it needs to be, but not socially. The assistant principle was really nice though. I'm glad to be moving out of Chicod's school district.

My daughter began school at Chicod in the 5th grade. She came from a private school with a strong reading/spelling background. Math/science at the private school was not their strong point. Therefore, my daughter suffered in those fields. Math especailly. She had a great 5th grade teacher who recognized this and got her the help she needed. Because of this, my daughter received the most improved award at the end of the year. This is a rural school and consequently doesn't possess some of the 'high tech' that the city schools do. However, the one thing they do possess is compassion and nurturing. Whenever, I've had a problem or issue with Chicod the staff and Mr. Jones are right there to help and follow up. I am extremely pleased and proud that my daughter attends this school. She loves Chicod!

This is a great school if you child is average or high. If your child needs extra help there is not much to offer. There is no after school tutoring unless you want to pay a great deal of money for it to get the teachers to tutor privately. There are very good teachers there, but like any school there are teachers that makes one wonder why they chose their profession. Their overall scores look good, but notice the gap between those who have disabilities, black students, and economically disadvantaged students. There is a lot of parent involvement, but it is hard to get into that 'inner circle' if you haven't been there for several generations. The school is overcrowded and the middle school doesn't offer what other middle schools in the county have because it is small.

Our son attend Chicod from 1st through 8th grade and now our daughter is currently in the 2nd grade. We have had wonderful experience with the teachers and staff at Chicod. It is a very family oriented school. With the new redistricting plan for next year we are having a hard time finding a home in the Chicod Districted but that is what our goal is!

My daughter has attended Chicod since K and is now in the 6th grade and with the exception of one horrible teacher we have loved the school. It has a family oriented atmposphere that I think is wonderful. I am considering moving and it is tough because I will not move out of the district!

There are not enough e-activities within this school for all children. All children should be given the opportunity to play or partake in something. As for as the look of the school it is a mess. how can the children be safe with all the mess covering the grounds.

I had a bad experience with this school. My sons third grade beginning was a horror there. I was forced to Home school and have been for 3 years now. I say watch out to any child who enters the third grade, pray you get a good teacher. The system will not back you if you should have any problems.

My daughter is a fourth generation on both mother and father side, student at Chicod School and I have another daughter that will start next year. I would have it no other way. Chicod is a community school and the staff are wonderful. Chicod rules!

This is my first year dealing with the public school system, and it has not been a pleasant one thus far. My child previously attended a private facility, and I heard so much great things about this school that I gave it a try. We are all entitled to make mistakes!
