Spectacular facilities. Limitless potential.
Village School Building
Village School classrooms and playgrounds promote constant curiosity and play. The VS Library is a colorful literary playground where young students can relax in between class and get lost in their favorite stories. The VS Makerspace studio lets students indulge their inner engineer to create exciting hands-on projects. The complex also has its own cafeteria and administrative offices.
Middle and Upper School Building
In the Robotics Room, students advance technical skills and bring innovative solutions to life. In the library, students spend quiet time studying and exploring thousands of titles. The MS/US Cafeteria allows students to socialize and serves a variety of Korean and international dishes.
In the Cisco Telepresence Room, students of all ages connect with their counterparts at Chadwick School in Palos Verdes, California. The TV studio lets students channel their inner producer. They work on independent projects and even broadcast school news. The Project Room allows students to conference and collaborate without distraction. It’s where big ideas are born.
The Spine is a four story building connecting the Village School to the Middle and Upper School complex. The expansive corridor houses shared facilities like the Main Theater, the Black Box Theater, the gymnasium and the Aquatics Center, as well as the MS/US Design Lab and student support centers.
Take a closer look at how our facilities foster education and adventure.
Chadwick classrooms were thoughtfully designed by a group of professors to optimize education. Each Village School classroom has a toilet, water faucets and storage within the room while desks and chairs encourage group activities. Early Years classrooms also have direct access to four pocket playgrounds so that each age group has their own outdoor space. In the Middle and Upper Schools, a “collaboration room” between two classrooms allows students and teachers to connect or branch off for special projects and group activities.
Students harness digital innovation and technical savvy using 3D printers, laser cutters and other cutting-edge equipment in the Robotics Room, Makerspace and Design Labs. Two Telepresence rooms allow students to connect live with their peers in other countries, while our professional TV studio and broadcasting station lets students produce and broadcast up to eight local channels. Students also use new recording rooms to create informative podcasts, like "This Week at Wick" — a show focused on life and happenings in the Upper School.
Chadwick’s athletic facilities challenge students to develop their physical prowess in a range of popular sports. They also emphasize the importance of physical activity and healthy living through play. They include two gymnasiums (including an indoor rock-climbing wall), an athletic field designed with the same artificial grass as AC Milan's training field, a running track, five tennis courts, an indoor aquatics center with a 25-meter heated pool, numerous playgrounds, a dance studio and a weight training room. It’s a budding athlete’s dream.
The heated pool in Chadwick's Aquatics Center has 6 lanes for competitive swimming, a 3.5-meter deep diving area, seating capacity for 200 and electronic scoreboards.
Creativity and self-expression flourish in Chadwick’s Main Theater, where students rehearse and perform in concerts, musicals, plays and talent shows. It features 588 main seats with 163 in the balcony along with backstage capabilities that rival elite professional theaters. The Black Box Theater sets the stage for more intimate performances. In Chadwick’s Fine Arts Studios, students draw, design, sculpt, paint and shoot. A ceramic kiln allows even Village School students to explore the art of sculpture. In the Television Studio, they get to write, direct, edit, produce and host original projects. Specialty music rooms were designed for choirs, ensemble and instrumental music, along with six individual practice rooms.
Village School students run, jump, climb and swing in the Challenger Course. Group activities, competitive sports, physical fitness and endless play abound out on the Soccer Field and surrounding track.
The 29.25-meter Bell Tower, Philosophers Lawn and Amphitheater sit at the center of campus. The lawn is an expansive green space where students play, connect and exercise, and where many significant school events like graduation reception and Middle School transition are celebrated. It’s where the youngest Village School students have their first overnight camping experience in the Outdoor Education program, where movie nights are showcased and where students gather after the first day of school for the Ice Cream Social.
The Rock Garden is a natural learning space where Early Years students engage in outdoor inquiry and where Middle/Upper School students sometimes hold their drama, music or visual arts class. The greenhouse, chicken coop and vegetable garden spark curiosity and wonder as students discover the value of nurturing and maintaining living things.
We invite you to explore our campus and see why our students fall in love with learning over and over again each day.
