Chandler Elementary School Reviews
Several years ago the school Principal passed away and it was evident that the children really felt that loss. The school was without a Principal for a long period of time, but the students, faculty and parents kept the Chandler Cheeta spirit alive. The school thrived. I love that the Chandler Cheeta Community is strong and doing great academically. It is a great feeling as a parent going about my day feeling confident about the school O take my children to.
Chandler Elementary is an absolute gem. The teachers are wonderful, the school is clean, has an excellent Principal and Administration and we love it. The PTA is small but mighty and gets the job done! The student-body is ethnically diverse and the school grounds aesthetically beautiful with lovely, mature trees and greenery. They have wonderful after-school programs and and the school possesses an overall caring, community vibe. It is truly a Chandler family. My children love it. They are learning so much and blossoming daily. I cannot say enough things about this precious little treasure of a school!
