Chadwick International teachers and staff are dedicated, passionate mentors. Because of our small size, Chadwick International teachers know their students very well and become trusted mentors. Together with staff and parents, they form an essential partnership that guides the students and helps them perform to their full potential. Our teachers and staff are the “best of the best” from around the world. More than 80 percent hold advanced degrees and many have had experience teaching abroad. At Chadwick International, they work with a curriculum designed to teach students to ask questions, build connections between concepts, and understand how their classroom learning translates into the world and their own lives.
The Chadwick International full-time, paid internship program is designed for newly qualified teachers who wish to gain mentored international teaching experience. Our program lasts for one to two years, depending on the individual intern. Each intern has a mentor teacher, who is an experienced educator. An intern at Chadwick is a co-teacher who collaborates with the mentor teacher in all aspects of teaching, from planning the lessons to meeting with parents.
All teachers at Chadwick are engaged in a variety of professional development experiences that include training in their respective International Baccalaureate program to learning how to lead workshops. We firmly embrace experiential learning models.

- Student-centered: Dedicated to the intellectual, emotional, social, and ethical well being of Chadwick students as our first priority; able to engage them collectively and individually as whole people possessed not only of intellect but of passions, feelings, thoughts, and lives outside of school; and committed to teaching in ways that inspire a joy in learning and engagement in every student.
- Collaborative: Wanting to work with colleagues and students and to contribute creatively to effective working teams.
- Professionally grounded: Not only well-educated and passionate about learning and teaching, but also committed to all facets of Chadwick’s mission and conversant with the research that supports our pedagogy.
