Chaffee Elementary School Reviews

Chaffee Elementary has been an incredible blessing to my children and our family. This was our first experience with a public school system, and Huntsville City Schools did not disappoint! At Chaffee, you can expect your child will not only excel academically, but the staff is consistently teaching positive morals and values. My son has not grown just in his knowledge, but also in his character.

Recently the teachers held a "teacher parade" through the neighborhood. My son is in kindergarten, and every single staff member knew my son's name. If you are looking for an inclusive environment for your child to learn and grow in a small, neighborhood school, Chaffee is the school for your family.

We love Chaffee Elementary so much! We are in the process of building a new house, and we refused to build outside of Chaffee school district because we love it that much. The faculty and staff is so wonderful; they really make the school feel like home. The neighborhood is quiet and sweet, and feels very safe. We are Chaffee lovers for life!
