The Chester School District strives to promote a positive learning environment that fosters high academic standards and expectations for our students and our dedicated staff. We offer a challenging curriculum which creates an environment that is appealing and responsive to each child’s developmental needs. Critical thinking, initiative, problem solving, collaboration and perseverance are skill sets that the school district instills in each of our children to better prepare them to integrate into a globally diverse workforce. We seek to promote a positive, safe, caring and respectful environment for our children that will empower them and prepare them to be reflective, confident and responsible adults. We strive to have parents, teachers and community members become actively involved in our students’ learning environment so our children will be prepared, independent and socially responsible citizens in a global and changing world.
