Chinook staff has committed to improving student achievement by participating in focused and intensive staff development to increase our knowledge and skills as teachers.
Chinook is fortunate to have two active parent associations, the PTA and Chinook Optional School Association. These associations work together for the benefit of all students and are able to provide many enriching experiences for our students. Our focus on building reading comprehension skills continues throughout all grade levels. We help our young students learn to read so that as they grow older, they can read to learn.
