We envision Chets Creek Elementary as a standards-based learning community where internationally benchmarked performance standards help all learners experience the real life application of basic skills and concepts. Learning leaders use diagnostic tools to assess every student's academic strengths and weaknesses and then develop a course of instruction to meet the learner's academic needs. This diagnostic and prescriptive teaching philosophy has become the cornerstone of our success.
Our organizational core values drive all behavior and decision-making at Chets Creek. As a team of professionals, we have developed and defined values as a code of conduct for daily living in our learning community. Adult role models are expected to live by these values so that our children may learn from our example. Modeling these values helps instill the importance of high personal and organizational standards for a democratic and enriching life.
