From the Principal

Dear Current and Prospective Chesterbrook Academy-North Raleigh Families,

Chesterbrook Academy in North Raleigh was established in 1983 to provide families with a high quality, private school education. We take pride in our rigorous curriculum while creating a fun learning environment for students in preschool through fifth grade. We believe that beyond the core subjects, classes in art, music, drama, STEM, foreign language, health and physical education are essential to educating the whole child.

Our instructional staff is comprised of dedicated, dynamic educators who collaborate and utilize best practices for student success with a major emphasis on core academic skills. Our teachers are distinguished not only for their academic credentials, but also for their positive energy, commitment to their own lifelong learning, and ability to motivate and inspire students. Team spirit is evident throughout the school, as teachers collaborate within and across grade levels to provide an educational program that challenges all students.

Teachers attend a wide variety of professional development offerings provided at the school. Each school year, elementary teachers concentrate on mastering the reading and writing workshop model, promoting project based learning, utilizing our fabulous nature trail, and learning how to analyze each student’s assessment data in order to customize their learning experience. Our preschool teachers will be working to incorporate new, rigorous early literacy skills as well as providing a balance of play and socialization. 

Our beautiful outdoor facilities include a stage where students and staff are recognized and celebrated every month during a special awards ceremony. Surrounding the stage area are classrooms and two age-appropriate playgrounds. The school also includes a fine arts center, ecology center, classroom libraries, computers in each classroom, large multi-purpose room and swimming pool.

Our school strives to be a pulse and social center for our families and community. Many of our parents walk their children to and from their classrooms and even stay to catch up on community and school activities. Our after school programs allow children to remain at school to play or attend enrichment activities such as soccer, gymnastics, art, drama, tae kwon do, yoga, chess, as well as reading and math enrichment/remediation.

The teachers and I share a commitment to providing an outstanding educational experience for every child. We would love for you to meet with us to discuss your child’s educational needs and how we can meet them.

Best Regards,

Mike Williams
Principal, Chesterbrook Academy-North Raleigh
