School Profile

We offer a small-school atmosphere with big-school enrichments: arts, archery and an all-school science fair, to mention a few. In a quiet residential neighborhood and next door to the Northwest Como Recreation Center, Chelsea Heights focuses on academics, the arts and all-around wellness. Community members volunteer to tutor and read to our students, while active parents plan events, raise funds and created a running club that now has more than 100 participants. Full time science, music and physical education specialists help make the most of many regular field trips, and our updated computer lab and 16 interactive white boards provide exceptional learning tools. A brand new playground and landscape was installed in the spring of 2013.

Curriculum

Chelsea Height's curriculum incorporates experiences that build students' skills in critical thinking, problem solving, questioning strategies, reasoning, and creative expression. Other features of Chelsea Heights School include strong parent and community involvement, and student events in music, band, and science.

Educational Description

The school is organized as a traditional K-6 school with self-contained classrooms and some classroom switching for reading and mathematics in the intermediate grades. Students are provided with specialized instruction in vocal and instrumental music, physical education and science. Students with learning disabilities and those who are learning English as their second language receive individualized instruction as needed from the E.L.L. and Special Ed departments.

Our Gifted and Talented Coordinator and many parent volunteers provide higher level instructions to small groups from various grade levels.

School Wide Enrichment Model

Chelsea Heights meets the needs of gifted/talented students in several ways. Teachers have received specialized training in compacting and/or accelerating the curriculum for more able students. The designated teacher, as G/T coordinator, has been trained to provide a more personalized and challenging program of study for academically advanced students at Chelsea Heights. Many programs originally designed for G/T students, such as Continental Math League and Wordmasters, are offered to all students at various grade levels.

The Gifted/Talented program provides a wide variety of enrichment activities for the whole school and for individual grade levels and/or classrooms, as well as for a smaller group of identified students. Students work in pull-out groups in a resource room with a gifted/talented teacher. All G/T classes aim to introduce new challenges, stretch thinking skills, and include writing, accelerated math, problem-solving, and visual-spatial challenges.
