    Very good school. Lots of opportunities for students. Every teacher cares. No matter if they are mean or if they are nice. Every teacher wants there students to succeed. I think it is really silly for people to think that teachers don't care. They do. I am a student and I know what I am saying. So don't listen to the reviews telling you that the teachers are bad or they don't care. They all care.

    Maybe the Chelmsfrord Schools should be more concerned over following a child's IEP or the 'Bullying' that goes on during school and on the bus... and not so concerned over their BMI's.. I understand it is a MAJOR concern for the Chelmsford School system at this time but maybe..just maybe...a frosted cupcake is not going to be the biggest threat in a small childs life...maybe we should all direct our energy toward other things that just might be more important to the child and not so much the environment around them. Society stresses the importance of health and being thin I understand that completely. But what about their self-esteem...people come in all different shapes and sizes. In order to attend public schools each child needs a form filled out from their pediatrician shouldnt they be the ones folllowing the BMI's and not the schools?

    This school is well... like any other school. Some teachers care some just don't.

    I absolutely love this school. Even though the teachers are a hit or miss everything else makes up for it.
