Matoaca Elementary is the best keep secret in the Chesterfield county with great students, parents, teachers and administrators. The support staff is amazing too. From the moment you enter the hallway there is a warm inviting feeling.

I have 2 sons in this school and I am very pleased with Matoaca. They do so much for the kids and really pour their hearts into them. We have a new principal and assistant principal this year and so far they seem like the perfect fit for our community. Very approachable and warm.

The office staff is unpleasant. The principal, vice principal and counselor say what they need to please the parents, however, they don't seem to follow through with their committments. The teaching staff is excellent. The community is great. Very please with the school itself. The bus driver are da bomb!

My son attends Matoaca Elementary School. He has a wonderful teacher, but with the student/teacher ratio she has a very hard time keeping up. There are 2 kindergarden classes in one room. I am up there alot, it is really loud and hard for my son to concentrate. The princpal this year has done away with the newsletter. Real bummer. It really kept me updated on what was going on with the school. The teachers are very nice, parents supportive. Vice Prinicpal is the best. Wish I saw more of the principal. Matoaca is a wonderful place to raise a family. If we had another kindergarden teacher and the rooms were seperated, I would say it is the perfect school!

Matoaca is Chesterfield's best kept secret! You could'nt ask for a better public school. The teachers are very dedicated to their students and the parents are very supportive of the school. We are a GREAT TEAM! Just check the SOL scores, we work very hard and have achieved alot.
