History

Image for History

Chapel Hill Elementary School is located in the center of Douglas County - home to approximately 135,000 people.  Our community lies about 20 miles west of Atlanta, Georgia.  Our original building opened adjacent to Chapel Hill Middle School in 1978.  In 2007 we began school in a new state-of-the-art building on Coursey Lake Dr.  It was built at a cost of $14.1 million, has 56 classrooms, and sits on a site of 33 1/2 acres.  We are proud of our school! 

Our current student population is approximately 700 students in Kindergarten through Fifth grade.  Our staff consists of one Principal, an Assistant Principal and thirty-one full-time grade-level teachers.  In addition, our faculty has two Program Challenge (gifted) teachers, six special education teachers, two Physical Education teachers, a part-time ESOL teacher, an art and a music teacher.  A counselor, Media Specialist, Educational Evaluator, Social Worker, and Psychologist complete the staff.  Non-certified personnel consist of twelve instructional paraprofessionals, one office manager, an attendance clerk, and two office clerks.  

Chapel Hill Elementary operates under a management plan of shared decision-making directed by a Principal and Assistant Principal.  Administrators have an open door policy for faculty, staff, and parents. Each grade level and special area team is represented on a shared leadership, decision-making team.

Curriculum

The Douglas County curricular and instructional programs have been developed to provide challenging educational experiences for all students. The curriculum is systematically revised to ensure that the content and materials are appropriate and the objectives are consistent with system philosophy. The instructional program is designed to enhance the curriculum by providing teachers with the flexibility needed to meet individual student needs. This may be done by varying teaching strategies, using higher order thinking skills, and applying the curriculum to real-life, hands-on experience.

An overview of curricular objectives can be found on the Douglas County School Website.  Once there, go to the box marked “Departments” and it has a drop choice of “Curriculum and Instruction.” Click on "Elementary" and then “Curriculum.” You can also visit Georgia’s Department of Education website to get a broader view of state curriculum and educational resources.
