Welcome to our New School Website

Nestled in the welcoming Village of Chester, Chester District School serves a broad catchment area on the beautiful South Shore of Nova Scotia. With approximately 300 students ranging from Grade Primary to Grade Five, our school is committed to ensuring high levels of achievement for all students. As a thriving and integral part of our community, CDS offers a broad complement of programming and after-school activities and a highly committed staff.

Continuous School Improvement

In September 2013, Chester District School and Gold River - Western Shore Elementary School amalgamated after the closure of GRWSES. To assist in continuing strategies to ensure a smooth transition for parents and staff, we are working on our Continuous School Improvement plan. Please stay tuned for our student and parent survey to help us collect information to inform the development of plan
