  • Here at Chadwick, you’re going to see kids talking to kids. If you walk in to our English classes, you’ll see kids sitting around in a circle and discussing literature. If you walk in a math class, they’ll be sitting in a pod working together. On a day-to-day basis, the teaching of those discussion skills and collaboration skills is awesome.

  • It’s easy to say, ‘Spend 15 minutes with your laptop looking for this or that.’ But for the humanities, most of our classes look like small seminar classes because, ultimately, we still want 15 people sitting around a circle and discussing a text. This is how students develop perspective, listening skills, empathy and their sense of selves.

  • I love my teachers for their creativity, knowledge, and humor. They know how to keep us students interested in the lesson.

  • Character growth is a very important part of life at Chadwick. To me, school is an extension of our life at home, and we appreciate that the school spends so much time trying to instill the core values in our children. I see a difference in the social behavior of Chadwick students and our local neighborhood kids, and people often comment that the Chadwick students they meet are polite and well-spoken.

  • When we attended one of the Chadwick open house sessions on campus, we were greeted by a couple of students, and were extremely impressed.  We knew that if our daughter could grow into a wonderful young person such as the students we met during the open house, we were in the right place.  We haven’t been disappointed.
