Chandler School is celebrating 60 years of excellence in K-8 education throughout the 2010-2011 school year. Sixty years ago, Chandler School was founded by Thomas A. and Catherine Chandler in a rambling, turreted shingle house in Altadena, California. They dreamed of a school that would provide young students with innovative, inspired academic programs taught by caring, dedicated faculty.
Today, Chandler School is widely considered to be one of the preeminent K-8 independent co-educational schools in the San Gabriel Valley and an undisputed leader in integrating instructional practice with emerging technologies. In September of 2011 the School will open its brand new South Campus which includes state of the art classrooms, a new library and media center, three clustered science labs, a new multipurpose auditorium, athletic facility improvements and enhanced courtyards. The four and one-half acre campus offers a sweeping view of the Arroyo Seco.
Chandler School is known for its rigorous academic program, as well as for nurturing the social development of young students. The mission of the school is to provide each student with the highest quality and most academically challenging education in a nurturing, balanced, and diverse environment.
