This school is great! Two years ago we moved to the city, and my son started public school. He was almost failing every class. Since we were accepted to Chapel Hill he started making all A's and B's. I am very happy with the dedication the teachers use to help the kids. However, I am not too impressed with the volunteers they allow to work there. I saw a woman volunteer yell and grab a little boy by his arm then yank him. I told the principal about it but nothing was done. They should not allow this type of person to volunteer with children, and apparently she has been there for a few years.
I am so proud to be a part of the amazing staff at CHA. We are a strong partnership committed to growing a community of learners. I believe we have the best parents in the nation and our PTA is outstanding. I look forward to each day of school and seeing our students reach for the stars.
Hi my name is Sarah I am the proud grandma of Cameron. 2nd grader\ at Chapel Hill. Cameron has been at Chapel Hill 3 years now starting in Kindergarten. He has been so very blessed with teachers and staff on every level of education each of whom honestly cares not just about his required studies, but with every aspect of his life. They have seen my dear grandson go through some difficult life situations in a short time. At each hurdle they have eased his mind given him solid directions to go in and loved not only Cameron but the family through it all. Chapel Hill is a great solid foundation for our future leaders of this community to begin and continue their adventure in learning not only Math and English,but life. Thank you to ALL the staff of Chapel Hill and the Lena Pope Organization.. Each of you have made a life long impact on our family. See you all next year With much love and RESPECT. Sarah Wood
This is my daughter second year to attend this school and I am so pleased with the school administration. I would rate this school with five stars. If you re looking for a school that truly cares about your kids education this is the school for your child. My daughter was very insecure when she started at this school, between the teachers, counselor and I, she has overcame her insecurities and learned a great deal. Chapel Hill takes pride in their student s education. They have a great deal to offer our kids, such as the summer learning program where they give an opportunities for kids to learn even more and get to have fun all at the same time. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a great elementary to put your kid in this school.
I researched several local schools before enrolling my daughter in kindergarten at CHA. I have been impressed from the first day with the leadership and educational environment at the school. The teachers and administrative staff are very caring, competent, and approachable, and they encourage parental involvement and input. There are many extra curricular activities available to students, and even several events designed to get the entire family involved. The Lena Pope Home provides many opportunities for the students to get involved in the community and brings many experiences right to the school. Mayor Moncrief and his wife sponsored CHA students in this year's Super Bowl Walk of Hope and a local opera company came and put on a private performance of "Little Red Riding Hood" at the school. Chapel Hill provides so many opportunities for the students and parents attending, and I would highly recommend this school to anyone considering a change.
My children have attended Chapel Hill for three years. It was a blessing to find CHA. The teachers take the time to ensure that every student reaches his/her greatest potential. The communication between the teachers and the parents is excellent and that is a key part in any child being a success in school. The staff as a whole are wonderful. They care about each and every family that walks through the doors at CHA. The curriculum is excellent and keeps my children wanting to come to school everyday and learn.
The quality of the teachers at this school is great, they seem to really be interested about the kids education and are willing to help. The food in the cafeteria i think needs a little adjusting there is still some very unhealthy items for the kids. Overall the school is great as far education is involved
Superb teaching staff and above average curriculum. The parents are just as involved in the daily activities as the teachers and staff. I have daughters in Pre-K and Kindergarten and the family environment is safe and thriving.
My children have attended this school for the last two years and we've been very pleased with the school from the janitor all the way to the principle. Mrs. Sendejo produces excellence by improving drop off/ pick up, child safety and security, and staff selection. True she's different than Mrs. Greer, but her leadership and push for excellence exceeds her predecessor. The school doesn't need a stewardess welcoming everyone aboard, and offering goodbyes when they leave, it needs what it has, a great pilot leader. True, there's more students, but thats what happens when you add another grade (grade 2), and I think they've handled the influx well. It would be easy to nit pick and find something wrong, but when you compare Chapel Hill Academy to any public option around, hands down you'll be blessed like I was to find this great school offers a superior environment for learning.
I loved this school so much, but the new principle is not too friendly. The school seems to have too many children now. My child went tnere last year it wass wonderful, the staff is nice, but this year the new teacher are not a friend, the enviorment is not bright like last year. A lot of parents that children went to this school are very unhappy. I hate this for the school, its too many students, and the principle is not friendly, she not out there to welcome, the parents and students, and she comes out late to dismiss them, matbe next year they can et a principle who smiles more, jeers to who hire her, we want Ms. Greer back. Lets see the students who want come back next year, this school is going to be rated like the poor Fwisd.
Excellent 1st school year i hope the school will continue to add all grades
The Best charter school in Fort Worth, well on it's way the being the Best in Texas. Support from Lena Pope Home Foundation, great leadership from the principal, along with a fantastic group of teachers / educators / assistants make this school a true 'hidden gem'. The teachers truly care for their students, and they make learning fun and interactive. My son had a great kindergarten experience, matured socially, he loved going to school, and made lots of friends. He learned to share, care, and excel (to do his best work!) I have met many other parents who feel likewise, and there is a strong parental involvement throughout the campus. A+++++ to all the teachers, you are wonderful people, and thank you for your love and dedication to teaching our next generation. We appreciate all the early mornings, late evenings, and extra time you've poured into helping your students succeed!
great school and great teachers as well. Very dedicated to the students education.
This school is great!, the discipline, teachers and the Principal have the only goal to prepare and educate our kids in a friendly environment with respect. I truly recomend this charter school! The group are small, only 14 per room. Awesome!
