    This school is very welcoming and has a wonderful open door policy for parents to be involved. They also take safety seriously and will be keeping students inside and scanning QR codes before sending students out to be picked up in car rder lines. The teachers are great! My child still adores Mrs. Sonja Miller and even likes the principal Mr. Mathison who is involved and knows all the kids by 1st name. He even manually inputs coke reward codes for the school! Mrs. Wells saves cereal bag plastic and sends it off for recycling. Great staff all around!

    Our daughter has been at Chapman 2 and a half yrs. Her first two yrs. were wonderful and so far her third has been great. She has been on honor roll since she's been there. The teachers at Chapman are great. They really put an effort on your child's learning and understanding. We really like the principle and the asst. principle that were there and the ones that are there now they are great too. Our daughter really loves this school and her first teacher Mrs. McCallister she's an excellent teacher.
