School Reviews

My son's experience at Chute Middle School has been phenomenal. He struggled through elementary school and we were bracing ourselves when he entered 6th grade. His experience in middle school was totally different - he is actually enjoying school while being significantly more successful. This is in large part due to a school culture of teamwork and a problem-solving approach. In this school, No Child Left Behind actually means something rather than being a catchphrase handed down from on high by some pundit. Every child is valued, and every child is held accountable.
