About Chester Academy

School Description
Chester Academy is a K-8 grade school of 520 students, located 20 miles east of Manchester. The school serves students from the small, rural town of Chester and in fact is the only school in town. Chester Academy students attend Pinkerton Academy High School in Derry, New Hampshire.

The Chester School District, as the Education Leader of our community, will assure that all students acquire knowledge and develop skills and work habits that enable them to compete successfully in a diverse, global community.

This mission is best accomplished when all school personnel recognize and address the individual needs of all students, maintain challenging expectations for the students, seek student engagement, create a positive climate, ensure a safe and orderly school environment, monitor student progress on a frequent basis, and promote effective school-community involvement.
