Chestnut Ridge Elementary

Chestnut Ridge Elementary School will build a foundation to ensure each unique child will experience optimal social, emotional and academic success through a challenging, child-centered educational program in a safe, collaborative, and nurturing learning environment.
Our current enrollment includes approximately 550 students in kindergarten through grade 4. A team of 85 full and part-time staff members provide instructional and support services to our students. The teachers and staff of CRS eagerly work together to promote our school vision. Supported by on-going training, instructional coaching and support from teacher leaders, our teams of teachers meet weekly for professional development and data driven conversations.
