MSDE Report Card
What makes us unique:
Chesapeake Public Charter School is based on these beliefs:
Meaningful learning occurs naturally within the framework of a trustworthy community.
Small schools and class sizes encourage community and increase learning.
In a learner centered, inquiry-based setting, children learn through hands-on experiences and social interaction, which extends into the community.
Substantive, rigorous content motivates students to master literacy skills as they investigate engaging topics and communicate their discoveries.
An 11-month school year and carefully structured school day maximize time periods of concentrated learning.
An integrated, brain-based curriculum enables students to make relevant connections to everyday life and to become self-directed learners.
A social/emotional character development program that teaches social skills and good judgment is critical because we need to teach students not only knowledge, but how to use that knowledge well.
Through parent commitment to direct participation in the daily life of the school (as well as parent partnership in the development of their child’s education plan) the level of parent involvement vital to student success is assured.
Within a reflective learning community, teachers collaborate regularly to consider teaching and assessment practices and to make innovations and adjustments that serve students’ well-being and steady progress.
A defining outcome of this educational philosophy is that students become life-long learners as well as citizens who contribute their unique talents to benefit the communities in which they live.

I am most proud of my school community when…
I see the school community embrace and support each other as well as our students
CPCS staff moves out into the larger SMCPS community to share their knowledge and expertise as teacher leaders
I see how our existence has led to other schools in the community taking risks and being innovative.
