Chadwick School is an independent, K-12, coeducational day school dedicated to developing global citizens with keen minds, exemplary character, self-knowledge and the ability to lead. Located on a beautiful, 45-acre hilltop campus on the scenic Palos Verdes Peninsula in Los Angeles County, Chadwick enrolls 860 students (320 in the Village School) drawn from more than 50 Southern California communities.
Chadwick School was founded in 1935 by visionary educator Margaret Lee Chadwick. A highly educated faculty and staff bring out the best in the talented student body through active learning, challenging academics, one-on-one mentoring, unparalleled global opportunities, nationally distinguished outdoor education and community service programs, outstanding athletic opportunities, and award-winning visual and performing arts.
The core values of honesty, respect, responsibility, fairness, and compassion are widely shared and fostered daily in classrooms, during co-curricular activities, and through the camaraderie of this closeknit community. Chadwick has grown and evolved throughout its 83-year history, but the progressive vision of its founder remains a driving force behind the school’s commitment to excellence and innovation. Today there are two Chadwick campuses: Chadwick School in Palos Verdes Peninsula, California, and Chadwick International in Songdo, South Korea. Both campuses are operated by the Roessler-Chadwick Foundation Group.
For a position to begin in August 2019, Chadwick School Palos Verdes seeks a Director of the Village School, which enrolls 320 students in kindergarten through sixth grade. This is a stellar opportunity for an experienced and dynamic lower school leader who is eager to lead a vibrant and innovative division, and who is committed to making a difference in young students’ lives.
