About Us

Chaparral Elementary is a unified community dedicated to building an environment that promotes the development of the whole child as a successful individual through Collaboration, Communication, Critical Thinking, Creativity, Compassion and Citizenship. As a California Gold Ribbon School, Chaparral’s motto, “C.U.B.S.: A Community Unified Builds Success,” serves as a constant reminder that by working together as a unified community, we can ensure the success of our students.

This ongoing vision process has developed strong parent and grade level teams increasing communication, collaboration, and learning across Chaparral. In our unified community, we are all collectively responsible for the students and our actions. Reading and Writing Workshops place a primary focus on student voice, choice, and develop a high level of literacy.

Data from a multitude of sources is used to develop strong academic programs as well as fine arts, technology integration, student council, lunch clubs, and enrichment opportunities to meet the needs of our students. In addition, through grade level articulation, Chaparral has identified universal expectations. These expectations, such as silent communication signals and whole brain teaching, provide support as students move to a new grade each year. Chaparral’s CUBS are truly a unified community in building the success of its students.
