Our School

Dear Parent,

Thank you for your interest in Chesterbrook Elementary School in Cary.

At Chesterbrook, we believe:

  • When given the right opportunities, all children can reach their full academic potential, cultivate positive relationships, and become motivated lifelong learners.
  • Quality learning is achieved through instructional sensitivity to all learning styles and active, engaged, project-based lessons.
  • Students deserve a learning environment where they feel emotionally, socially and physically secure and accepted.
  • All individuals in our school community will teach and model courage, respect, compassion, citizenship, perseverance, responsibility, honesty, fairness and good judgment.

Since its inception in 2000, our school has been known for its excellence in preschool through fifth grade education. Over the years, parents have complimented us on our warm and enthusiastic teachers, our understanding of the needs of each child, and our rigorous, standards-based curriculum.

Our teachers are passionate, dedicated individuals who use their creativity and sensitivity to bring our well-rounded curriculum to life. They personalize lessons to ensure that instruction is stimulating and challenging for each student.

We believe that beyond the core subjects, classes in art, music, technology, Spanish and physical education are essential to educating the whole child. Our curriculum is founded on rich and challenging content that engages students and inspires them to develop a love of learning. We recognize however, that students need more than academic knowledge to achieve future success.

We enhance our curriculum with a variety of special events and off-campus experiential learning programs, including our fourth grade trip to the North Carolina coast and our fifth grade trip to Washington D.C.

Children receive the best possible education when parents are involved. For that reason, we offer many convenient ways to stay in touch with us including school newsletters, classroom web pages and teacher email. We are proud to say that effective communication among parents, teachers and staff is a way of life at our school.

Please feel free to contact us to schedule a private tour of our campus. We look forward to meeting with you, gaining an understanding of your child’s educational needs, and discussing how our school can meet them.

Sincerely,

Diane McKune
Principal, Chesterbrook Academy Elementary School
