8 Parent Reviews for Chaparral Middle School

This is my son's first year and so far the school has been great. The music program is great with Mrs. Koch and Mr. Brown. Winter Recital was incredible. The teachers are very responsive and parent co-operation is awesome! The boys and girls club is situated near the office and it's free.

Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled.

The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
