ONE SCHOOL. ONE VISION. ONE FAMILY

I want to express my gratitude to the entire Imagine-Chancellor family for making 2022 joyous. The amount of character demonstrated by our students, staff, and parents has been exceptional. Positivity in action has greatly impacted others within our school and surrounding communities.

As we embark on a new year, let's continue this outpouring of support to keep the Imagine-Chancellor family STRONG. Please take time to focus on the positive outcomes that have emerged from 2022 and set goals for 2023.

I wish everyone a healthy, prosperous 2023. Thank you for your continued support and always remember we are Imagine-Chancellor STRONG!

High Ridge Landing Apartment Complex Student Drop Off and Pickup NOT PERMITTED

Recently, we have been contacted by the management office at the High Ridge Landing Apartment Complex informing us that students are being dropped off and picked up in their parking lot. This is not permitted. If your child is a car rider you are required to go through the car line. If they are a walker, the apartment complex IS NOT an option for pickup. We greatly appreciate your cooperation in this matter.

Handicap Parking Spots

Please ensure handicap parking spots are not used for drop off or pickup of students. These spots are designated for those with handicap permits. If you do not have a permit, please use available parking spots for drop off and pick up. Thank you for your cooperation.

Imagine-Chancellor's Annual Toy Drive

We are so grateful for our Imagine-Chancellor family as they once again supported our sister school, Imagine North Lauderdale by donating toys for all of the students. Our Middle School Leadership classes were able to bring additional joy to the students by assisting them with toy selection as well as get to know the students. This event was full of joy, appreciation, and kindness. This was the true definition of positivity in action. Thank you to everyone who donated to this great event.

Appreciation for Community Partner

A HUGE thank you to our community partner Meehan's Family Moving for transporting all of the donated toys for our annual toy drive to Imagine North Lauderdale. We greatly appreciate their generosity and ongoing commitment to Imagine-Chancellor.

Visitor Policy

All visitors must provide government issued ID to enter the school building. Visitors will be issued a visitor badge that must be worn at all times. When exiting the building, all visitors must check out and turn in their visitor badge.

Student Tardiness

Student achievement is of utmost importance at Imagine-Chancellor. Teachers must maximize instructional minutes to promote student learning success. Tardies are a major disruption to the learning environment and student learning. Students miss extremely important intervention/enrichment time. Additionally, learning stops while the tardy student settles into his/her seat.


Student tardies continue to be a problem. We strongly encourage families to ensure their child(ren) are setup for success each morning by arriving to school on time. The instructional day starts at 8:30 am. Therefore, it is expected for all students to be in their seat ready to learn at this time. We appreciate your support in this matter.


Helpful Hint: Morning arrival car lines have extremely little to no traffic between 8:00-8:15 am.

Daily Arrival Procedures

  • Students who are enrolled in before care will be able to enter the campus daily from 7:15-7:45 am off of High Ridge Road. Parents will receive special car tags to identify as before care students.

  • All students will use hand sanitizer prior to entering the building.

  • Access to the school off High Ridge Road will not be accessible from 7:45 am-8:45 am.

  • Parents who are not enrolled in before care will enter the campus off of Miner Rd following traffic down Imagine Way. Gates will be open to all students at 7:50 am each morning.

  • All other students will not be permitted to enter campus prior to 7:50 am.

· If you have multiple children in different grade levels, please come at the oldest child’s release time to pick up all of your children on the SOUTH SIDE of the school.
