You will never find a better community of people invested in the health, wellness and success of your child. Wonderful teachers and administrators. Wonderful families. But above all, a truly wonderful COMMUNITY of people.
My Family just moved here from Cincinnati, OH and so this year , so my daughter was a new student at Colonial Hills Elementary School. She was starting a new school in 6th grade and was extremely nervous. All the teachers, students and parent's were so welcoming. By the time the school year ended, she felt like she was in the school since Kindergarten. The education she received here in one year, was amazing. Her three teachers truly cared about their job and the students, which obviously showed. The music program is top notch and allowed the students to enjoy school more than I believe they normally would. The two plays they put on seemed like high school productions. I am so glad that Colonial Hills still realizes that music is an important part of the students curriculum.
I cannot say enough about this GEM of a school. I have been an involved parent for the last four years and have loved every moment. This school is primarily a walking school which gives parents a unique opportunity to be a daily presence in the school community -- chatting with other parents and teachers before and after school. Many parent volunteers and an outstanding teaching and administrative staff and a cozy, family feel make this school incomparable. My husband just got a new job out-of-state and leaving this school will be the hardest part of our move. It is simple not replaceable.
I cannot describe in words just what a wonderful asset Colonial Hills Elementary School is to its students and our closeknit community. The teachers are first-rate: caring, motivated and creative. Most bent over backwards to educate and support my daughter throughout her elementary years. Early-bird gymnastics and an amazing music/drama program are worth special note. We're all family.
CHES is one of those hidden gems. Located in a neighborhood with strong community involvement, the environment is warm, friendly and supportive. The school and neighborhood create a wonderful environment in which to raise children.
