"Because not all great minds think alike." This statement sums up the impetus for the creation of Chartwell School in 1983, starting with just eight students. We operated as a K-8 school in rented facilities for more than two decades, and then built and opened our new green campus at the former Fort Ord in 2006. We added a college preparatory high school program in 2009, and today it, along with our K-8 program, attracts students from throughout California's Central Coast region and beyond.
This Strategic Plan, while forward looking, remains faithful to our mission, commitments and core values, and sets achievable initiatives in motion. This plan has four core commitments that provide a clear roadmap for the next three to five years and can be updated as we move ahead.
