16 Parent Reviews for Chinook Trail Elementary School

I think this school has some great teachers, but an incredibly weak administration. I had a problem with one teacher, and it's like they were afraid to do something about her. As another reviewer said, it's also really clique-y. I have children at other schools in the same district that are nothing ...  Read more

I have really loved this school. It seems like they push the children but try to make learning fun at the same time. My daughter comes home everyday with the biggest smile on her face.

Attended the choice night for this school. Very impressive. The number of teachers in attendance, the warmness, organization, and communication! Definitely one of the better elementary school in District 20, and they even offer band in 5th grade!

My children have attended several schools, as we have moved around quite a bit. Chinook gets high marks for sure. Teachers are compassionate, nurturing and extremely knowledgeable. The opportunity for my kids to interact with the special needs population is a total bonus as well as they learn to help ...  Read more

We took our daughter out of our district and put her into this school and we LOVE it! We love that they are teaching our daughter Chinese and that they really seem to care about the students. My daughter is thriving w/her teacher and is doing really well academically. We drive a good 20 minutes to ...  Read more
