    Chandler Elementary prides itself in elevating reading and math scores for those students who may be lagging in those areas. They score very well in this area. My daughters 5th grade teacher in fact takes her own time after school to tutor her in math. She is interested in her understanding the material. She is also knowledgeable in ADD and continues to help her pay attention and communicate with me in her progresses or difficulties. That being said my son's 2nd grade experience is not satisfactory to us. Chandler does not seem to be concerned with children who excel past their grade levels. He is not offered challenging material or worksheets to promote continued learning for him. Their attitude so far has been he passes his grade level so great nothing else is needed. They have an excel class each for the 4th and 5th grade. My son loves to learn however he is so bored. They are mostly concerned with ISTEP tests being passed and following the CORE guidelines. Not I believe my son's learning. I tutor him in the lacking material at home.

    Both of my children have attended Chandler Elementary and we have had a wonderful experience. I do not think the Great Schools rating accurately reflects the quality of this school. While test scores may play a role in ratings it is important to remember that test scores are a result of many factors. Mrs. Henrich (the principal) and the majority of the staff we have encountered are clearly dedicated individuals who truly care about their students. I have always felt very good about sending my children to school as I am confident that their teachers care very much about them.

    Chandler Elementary is an excellent school. My son is in the EXCEL program and I am very happy with the program the teachers and the administration. They all go above and beyond what is required to make my son's experience at school a positive one.

    My daughter attends Chandler Elementary. She is now in the third grade. With reguard to the expectations in general they are much higher than that of big city schools. I believe the smaller classes sizes really help with one on one time. With the exceptions of a few teachers I believe this school is excellent.

    I personally think this school has a lot to work on when it comes fairness. They also want children to follow the rules and for the parents to be consistant however they can't teach what they preach.
