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.
