Waters shown above has gotten a good amount of buzz over the past decade. Parents in Ravenswood should also visit Chappell Elementary. The newer principle of about 5 years is doing a knock-out job. No “buzz” yet or flashy fundraising events, but the school is doing the job in the classroom. I’ve been impressed by the atmosphere and kids. The Pre-K is very popular and has a waiting list and they’ve added a lot of kids and classes over the last few years. I’ve met some great parents and we look forward to supporting this excellent neighboorhood school heading in the right direction.
