    I have all good things to say about this school as a parent. We have great experience with the teachers and how well they work with our kids and the principal. We did not know what to expect when we began with our oldest in Kindergarten there but as she begins second grade in the fall we are very satisfied with our experience. It is also well kept and clean and the staff is readily available to parents at all times. Thank you.

    This is a good school. Teachers are very competent and the principal is great. He communicates every week to the parents through email on what s happening in Chaparral. Good place for kids.

    The principal of this school takes great pride in his students and school. The principal is out in front of the school at the beginning of the day and is out there at the end of the day and is very involved with the well being and education of the students. The teachers are great and are eager to teach the kids. One of the best if not the best school my kids have ever attended.
