• Dear Parents and Community Members,

    I am proud to report that Chaparral Elementary is, for the second year in a row, an “A” rated school. This is the result of a collaborative effort between students, teachers, staff, parents and community members. We are very proud of this rating as it is a tremendous accomplishment!
    Chaparral Elementary School continues to show proficiency in all Arizona state assessments. Some points of highlight following the 2018 AZ Merit and AIMS Science Assessment results include:
    • We received 100% of our English Language Learner proficiency and growth points!
    • We received 100% of the awarded Acceleration/Readiness points!
    • We are the top performing elementary school in the area of 4th Grade Science!
    At Chaparral, we understand the importance of academic achievement, learning for all students and emphasizing the significance of developing leadership. Chaparral is a Leader in Me school, with a focus of using the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People framework at school and home. We will continue to strive to improve on best practices of teaching while building student leaders.
    We will continue to focus on maintaining our “A” rating while maximizing growth for each individual student. We will continue to work collaboratively, using frequent formative data to guide the learning of all students. We will continue to encourage a growth mindset and incorporate student-centered learning activities into daily instruction.
    I am so proud of our students, teachers, staff and this community! We could not have achieved this ranking without your continued support and encouragement. It truly takes a village! Thank you!

    We are proud to be Sharks!
