Chipman Middle School Reviews
I'm the parent of a 6th grade girl. She has excelled at every point in her academic career and it hasn't stopped at middle school. The teachers have kept her engaged with interesting projects and field trips. Most important to me, my daughter is happy at school.
Because of No Child Left Behind, the school will be undergoing a transformation in the next two years, and will likely reopen as a Neighborhood Charter School in the 2010-11 school year. This will provide the staff the resources and freedom it needs to serve the populations of students who have underperformed. I am thrilled that asking parents to participate in the transition process.
