Message from the Principal

It is my honor to be the principal at Chester Arthur School.  We have passionate teachers, aspirational students, and engaged community.   Our collective value of diversity and our commitment to equity fosters a culture of respect and joy that ensures our students grow academically, socially, and emotionally. Our teachers work endlessly to create relevant learning opportunities that are both rigorous and engaging.  Our students bring their sense of curiosity about the world and their place within.  Our engaged families and supportive community contribute their diverse wealth of experience and creativity to foster our vibrant school culture. I believe in the limitless potential of all children and that through our ongoing collaboration and reciprocal learning. THEY will lead us to change the world for the better.

– Dr. Mary Libby, Principal
