Chadwick Schools develop global citizens with keen minds, exemplary character, self-knowledge, and the ability to lead.
* The Roessler-Chadwick Foundation operates two campuses. One, located on the Palos Verdes Peninsula in California, was founded in 1935 and offers a K-12 education. The other, located in Songdo, South Korea and opened in 2010, offers a Pre-K-12 education.
Chadwick Schools are deeply committed to self-discovery through experience and reflection. Students develop the joy of learning, self-confidence, well-being, and curiosity through interactive and practical experiences. Our schools share the core values of respect, responsibility, honesty, fairness, and compassion.
Through active participation in an intentionally diverse and inclusive environment, students make a positive impact within and beyond their own communities. By living and learning in a student-centered, collaborative atmosphere of excellence, integrity and trust, we come to expect the best of ourselves and others.
Chadwick School has grown significantly since opening in 1935, but the legacy of its founder, Margaret Lee Chadwick, remains a driving force behind the school’s continued development. Now in its 75th year, Chadwick has more than 800 students in kindergarten through Grade 12 and has graduated more than 3,000 students.
One of Chadwick's most significant milestones is the founding in 2010 of Chadwick International School in Songdo, South Korea, expanding opportunities for students around the globe to benefit from a world-class Chadwick education and become lifelong members of the Chadwick Community.
