Chester Park School of Inquiry, along with the Colt School and Arts School, participate in the PE Points Competition. During Physical Education, each class can earn 5 points for being responsible, having discipline, working together as a team, and working hard. When the classes earn 100 points, they will receive a reward and a class certificate. We look forward to helping your children "learn as they move."

Greetings From the Principal



In partnership with families and the community of Chester County, CPE School of Inquiry Elementary prepares students for tomorrow's world through various academic and social experiences within a safe, supportive environment. At CPE School of Inquiry, our Mission Statement is “At the School of Inquiry, we set high expectations to enable all children to become inquiring, life-long learners.”  

Within a safe, supportive environment, students and teachers are invited and encouraged to participate in collaborative, engaged learning experiences. We create an atmosphere which allows our students to think critically, solve problems, collaborate with others, communicate effectively, and demonstrate creativity. The instructional program at CPE School of Inquiry places an emphasis on active student learning, strong teacher leadership, active parental support, and community involvement. In order to prepare for a global society and a commitment to continuous improvement, we expect our students to demonstrate academic and social competences. We seek to provide a challenging and appropriately rigorous curriculum for our students. Through these focused efforts, we strive to lay the foundation for our students to become college and career ready. 

True to our motto, “Shining Stars…Striving for Success,” we believe all of our students have strengths and abilities that contribute to our school’s overall success. The faculty and staff at CPE School of Inquiry strive to support the individual needs of students and help them to reach their full potential. As a result of these efforts, students are poised to become inquiring, life-long learners who make positive contributions to society. CPE School of Inquiry is proud of the excellent educational and social opportunities we offer to our students. Overall, as reflected by our Annual Report Card, our students excel. We attribute this to our effort in tailoring to students' instructional needs, providing support services, and consistently involving parents and the community.  

I believe educating our Shining Stars who are the future citizens of Chester, South Carolina and beyond is an awesome responsibility.  Let us work together and move forward as we realize that our students are truly our best resources!

Shining Stars…Striving for Success!

Robin K. Taylor, Principal
