Chukker Creek Elementary opened on August 29, 1994. Our school was built to accommodate students drawn from three overcrowded schools within Area One, those being Aiken, East Aiken, and Millbrook Elementary Schools. Major rezoning for elementary schools within Area One occurred to reestablish student populations. When our school opened, we had 575 students in child development, kindergarten, and grades one through five. Today we have 800 students in kindergarten and grades one through five.
We are nestled just outside the busy commercial area of the city of Aiken. Horse farms, some of which are polo pony farms, surround the city. Chukker is the term used in the sport of polo for one of six periods of play in a polo match. Aiken has a very active polo association. With this history, the name Chukker Creek Elementary fits us well.
