    "Some leadership changes in the past few years have not had a positive impact on this school. The PTA and volunteers are crucial, but some student privacy suffers, and sadly some parents do gossip about students outside of class. Any new family considering this school may experience getting the least popular, more rigid, demoralizing teachers. We've experienced some extreme inconsistencies with certain staff giving several hours of nightly homework, and others in the same grade, none at all. Unfortunately classrooms are very overcrowded but this is standard for most district schools in the area. Some classrooms here can be described as sink or swim. There also is a select group of parents who have some extraordinary privileges. Teachers do show blatant favoritism to this group. Some lack professionalism and show conflict of interest by being friends with favored parents on facebook and outside of class, even while currently teaching the student. Don't let the awards and titles fool you, this campus could use some leadership and policy changes. Another new principal this year hopefully will improve the atmosphere here for all and demand a more all-inclusive environment."

    "Management reluctant to make changes, putting rules ahead of children's interest. Luckily there is very active parent involvement which fills the gap with the help of few enthusiastic teachers."

    "Competitive parental involvement (good and bad). Allows plenty of recess/movement. Student body is respectful and no bully behavior experienced. Many extracurricular opportunities offered but only through third party vendors and overpriced. Teachers focus on high test scores and fail to adapt their teaching to individual students. Lessons are rushed and crammed. Too much homework (average 1 hr 2-3 rd and 3 hrs by 5th grade and given over district recess). Be prepared to pay for all workbooks, and technology (ipad, laptop) despite funding two computer labs (mainly utilized for testing). Art is funded but is minimal, inconsistent, and dependent upon volunteers. Running club is a mandatory" requirement for the staff to log enough PE hours. Classes have too many students 28-35. Favoritism in class assignments is quite apparent due to the amount of cliques seen with the PTA and volunteer mothers and their relationships with the staff. School nurse" is more concerned with daily funding than sending sick children home when not feeling well. No busing makes for drop off/pick up extremely difficult and time-consuming. Overall average/good academics but questionable otherwise."

    "My son is currently in 2nd grade at Chaparral. The teachers are highly motivated to teach in the best way for each child in their class. The Principal is driven and very active in supporting all programs to the benefit of the student population. It has strong academic standards, even for the area which is high itself. The parent involvement is almost unbelievably high, because of this the school has volunteer led art and run club programs as well as a Character Counts program. Both PTA and Foundation at this school are strong and actively involved in creating the best atmosphere possible for learning for the entire student population."
