Chesapeake Academy is located in Arnold, MD. It is a private school that serves 239 students in grades PK,K-5. Chesapeake Academy is coed (school has male and female students) and is nonsectarian in orientation. The school belongs to the National Association of Independent Schools.
In 2010, Chesapeake Academy had 11 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Maryland average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.
After 3 years at Chesapeake Academy, we ventured out to try the local public school. Shortly thereafter, our daughters became different people. One said she hated school and couldn't wait for the weekend, the other had fear in her eyes at homework time - something we had never seen in our daughters before. We stuck with it for a while to see if this was just "adjustment", but instead of adjusting our daughters became resigned to being stuck in a situation they hated. After one semester we went back to CA, and we got our happy, engaged daughters back.
