  • I have been VERY pleased with both of my children's schooling at Chaires. The teachers have been very communicative with me and have been very flexible and available in making confrences. The administrative staff have worked well with myself and my one child's special needs. I would highly recommend this school!

  • I felt very unwelcome at this school. I had a small child attending this school and I was not even allowed inside the school I was told to drop my child off at the door and was not allowed inside the school. This is no way to get parents to feel comfortable volunteering, I would have never volunteered one hour of my time! My child has since been withdrawn from the school,and we are both happier!

  • Teachers/administrators were extremely rude and I felt unwelcome every time I stepped foot in the school. My child no longer attends school at Chaires and I and my child are much happier.
