Chancellor Avenue Elementary School serves a diverse population of scholars from kindergarten through fifth grade. Our faculty is committed to providing each child with a quality education that encompasses high academic expectations, innovative and research based instructional practices, positive behavior/social interactions, and extensive parental involvement. This type of learning environment stimulates growth in all avenues of academic, social, and emotional development and it will ensure that scholars are college and career ready.
During the 2014-2015 school year, our quest to improve academic achievement will be based upon scholar engagement and effective teaching. Our teachers will continue to facilitate learning environments that recognize our scholars' unique and diverse academic, social, and physical needs. Effective teaching will produce high levels of scholar engagement that will lead to academic growth.
A comprehensive core curriculum is offered at Chancellor including English Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, World Language, ESL and Bilingual Education. Core subjects are taught in block periods to facilitate effective instruction. Resource Room Programs, Consultative Teachers, Speech, Specialized Reading programs, Guidance, and Intervention & Referral Services are available to scholars. Strong Art and Music programs are offered with many performance and exhibition opportunities during the year. Our Physical Education program will continue to support healthier lifestyles and the importance of exercise. We continue to be technologically rich with opportunities imbedded into the curriculum. Most of our classrooms are equipped with interactive Smart Boards and the scholars have access to a full service library and computer lab.
Additionally, it is understood that all scholars enhance their learning experiences when they are involved in activities. This year Chancellor will continue to have a Scholar Council and a National Elementary Honor Society chapter. We will continue to provide extracurricular activities such as chorus, band, reading club and math club, to name a few. Our Safety Patrol program, with award winning officers, will continue to thrive and develop the leadership qualities of our scholars. Throughout the year we will offer a wide range of academic enrichment, sports, arts activities, field trips and special assemblies.
Chancellor offers a supportive environment for scholars' academic and emotional growth so that they can develop into life-long learners who demonstrate the 6 Pillars of Character Education: trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. In addition, The Leader In Me – 7 Habits of Highly Effective People will provide scholars with necessary skills for high scholar achievement and staff with the skills for highly effective job performance.
Chancellor also serves as a community-based center providing resources to parents, as well as opportunities for them to share in the educational process of their children. We will foster open communication with parents, help families establish home environments that support children as scholars, all while providing a welcoming atmosphere.
A highly dedicated staff, a scholar-centered school atmosphere, a challenging curriculum, supportive parents and an engaged community provide the synergy that makes Chancellor Avenue Elementary School and exciting place to grow and learn.
