My grandson was a student at Chester Taylor last year. Overall, I really liked the school and the staff...HOWEVER, one teacher was beyond exceptional. Veronica Brocato. She is the most involved, compassionate and amazing teacher I have ever known! My grandson went from literally HATING school, to tearing up on his last day in Mrs. Brocato''s class. Kudos, Mrs. Brocato!! Well done!
