Our History: A Century of Excellence
Chevy Chase Elementary School has a rich history of education dating back to the late 1800s when a residence on Bradley Lane was first designated as Chevy Chase School. The school building itself is one of a few historically designated properties among MCPS school facilities. The first on-site structure was erected in 1917 with additional renovations and extensions completed over the years. Most recently the building underwent an extensive renovation in 1999. From its humble beginnings as a schoolhouse on Bradley Lane, CCES has grown into a leading MCPS school, incorporating innovative teaching methods and culturally-proficient, growth mindsets within its diverse community.
