    My daughter went to Chorley for 3 years it is one of the best schools in Middletown. The pricipal and staff are dedicaded to the children and 100% parent envolvment. Most middletown schools you can't even make it past the front doors to speak with anyone other then a hall monitor. I just wish chorley went up to 5th grade. we currently looking for a privet school so my dauyghter can continue her Chorley quality ed. The other middletown schools do not compare in quality of ed or parent envolment.

    I agree that the shool should step up to the plate with a gifted all day program i know they have gifted and talented after school but that is not enough my daughter was in the program when she was in kind. And she felt she could draw at home she wants to learn more she feeds on learing new things she loves to read and wants to learn all day long but her class is slow to her and then she gets bored...The school should have more opp. For gifted children there are plenty of ESL programs so why not gifted?
