    Chesterfield is a very small school in a rural setting surrounded with families in difficult financial situation. That being said the school offers teachers and staff are willing to go above and beyond for their students. Funds are distributed based on population so Chesterfield's principal and staff have to be creative in coming up with the items the other schools can just buy. Why do we do it? Our students are worth it! The students at Chesterfield the families there need great teachers. I love working some where that I feel I am needed.

    I think that people are unfair to the children at Chesterfield. They should have a better help system in place for the children of not so fortunate families.

    I feel NC testing is extremely too low to prepare the children for college. We must force the state to raise this in order for there to be achievers in our future! Parents need to ready there children to learn rather than be disruptive! More dedicated teachers put in the system and raise there pay!
