Our son has been attending Chesterbrook Academy Elementary for 4 years and we are eagerly awaiting the start of his 5th year. He has thrived; the school fosters a strong sense of community, and the staff and teachers are all very loving and supportive. We have recently moved back into Wake county, near a well-rated school, and yet we will continue to invest in his future (aka pay tuition) to ensure that he continues to receive the best foundation for his later school years. You can read reviews from years past, talking about the difficult administrative situation. We lived it, but we are on the other side of that now. The administration of this year had the challenge of gaining trust, correcting prior issues, evaluating the kids and teachers and implementing substantial changes to both curriculum and expectations. Coupled with the pandemic and transition to a virtual learning environment - they didn't just do it, they excelled at making this year the best we have had. I will say that the idea of distance learning terrified me, and I have a teaching background. But the plan was thorough, thoughtful, and so very well executed. We were the envy of our friends who attend public schools. Our son didn't just have busy work, he had a strong curriculum and daily routine, that was a solid extension of the in-school work he had been doing. The partnership between the school and parents was and continues to be beyond measure. The Spanish teacher even took time during her office hours and sometimes beyond to not only help the students, but tutor the parents (me included) so that we could best support our kids in her lessons. The teachers made sure zoom was both a place of learning and a place to have a social opportunity. If, by some grace, we are able to go back as planned; I know that the school will be prepared, standards will be set above those required, and our kids will be not only be educated, but safe. I am confident that CBA-Cary will rise to the challenge and am so fortunate that my family can be part of the "team". If we have to restart in a distance learning environment - you want to be here! They have a strong corporate learning back office who has vetted programs, enabled access to the best apps, and built a robust learning structure that will not disappoint.

I go to Chesterbrook and I absolutely love it! I've gone there for 5 years. The teachers there are so committed to making the students feel comfortable and I love the warm environment Chesterbrook puts you in right away. Teachers are committed to what they do and they turn kids who go there into absolute rock stars. Honestly, I couldn't ask for a better school to go to because I have so many friends and so many teachers that know me from past and present and love all of the other students that go there. We love this school -- and the administration is honest, caring open and awesome.

Chesterbrook is a great school. I have children in both the preschool and elementary programs. The staff are dedicated to educational excellence, they have a great character education program for the elementary students and a wide variety of afterschool programs for all students. My kids hate to leave school at the end of the day, which indicates they feel the same way that I do!
