Welcome to Chapman School!

At Chapman School we educate 294 students in grades one through six utilizing a staff of 32 nurturing, caring teachers complemented by 20 enthusiastic classified personnel.

Our commitment to our mission is reflected in our staff's continued efforts to implement a challenging curriculum that is appropriate for all of our students. In our classrooms students are heterogeneously grouped, and within that classroom setting we utilize small flexible groups to meet individual needs of students.

Technology is integrated into our curriculum at all grade levels. Each classroom setting contains at least two networked computers and many of our classrooms have Smartboards as well. Teachers use technology in their classrooms every day, and in the Computer Lab, Library Media Center, and Science Center on a weekly basis.

Students, staff and parents work together to provide Chapman's many enrichment and curricular activities. Students participate in after-school programs such as Student Council. Student Council collects Box Tops for Education to purchase various items for our school. To extend the concepts in the science curriculum, our sixth graders spend a week at Nature's Classroom. First and second graders read to community volunteers through our Rookie Reader Program, which stimulates the reading process for our beginning readers. Students are encouraged to join our school band, orchestra, and chorus.

Community involvement is important at Chapman School and is fostered by teachers, parents and support staff. Students participate in our community by donating to worthy causes such as Lights of Love, Cheshire Community Food Drive and UNICEF. Chapman also has a higher education scholarship program funded by donations made by the PTSA, parents, and businesses throughout our community.

We are proud to participate in the Connecticut Mentoring Partnership, a program of the Governor's Prevention Partnership. This program pairs mentors with students to enrich the lives of many of our students.

At Chapman School we strive to achieve the Three Rs - Respect Yourself, Respect Others, and Respect Your School. In this we hope to instill the values that will carry our students throughout their lives.
