Mission, Vision and Values
Chartwell empowers students with dyslexia and associated learning differences to unlock their full potential. We provide a college preparatory, strength-based program that gives students the skills, strategies, tools and mindset needed to become successful lifelong learners. We share our expertise through partnerships and outreach initiatives to transform education.
Chartwell aspires to show the world that young people with language-based learning differences and diverse learning styles and profiles can be among the most creative, productive and valuable members of any community. We further aim to inspire others to get to know, understand and value these students from very young ages and to help them realize their full potential. We seek to see them develop into confident young people and adults, committed to lifelong learning and equipped with the knowledge, skills and social and emotional competencies to achieve their goals.
Our vision of a better educational world for these students includes teachers who are lifelong learners, the adoption of cutting-edge research and effective technologies, and being a center of learning for the teaching profession, parents, and the community.
Our collaborative relationships with individuals, organizations and networks of allied professionals aim to advance the understanding, advocacy, and practical delivery of services for the benefit of individuals with learning differences, while partnerships with higher education, business, and others in our region seek to advance the quality of education for all students.
Our vision also includes sharing our green campus in ways that inspire our students and many others to appreciate, enjoy and be good stewards of the environment, respecting its beauty and vulnerabilities and using its resources wisely in their future lives and careers.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION AND JUSTICE STATEMENT
Chartwell School is committed to fostering a diverse school environment and experience that is equitable, inclusive, and safe for all faculty, staff, students, and families/guardians. We recognize that those in the Chartwell community comprise a wide range of backgrounds and characteristics. Honoring and respecting the identity markers of others contribute to positive and safe experiences at Chartwell School.
It is our intention that those in the Chartwell community, regardless of background or characteristic, are always treated with respect and dignity. Disrespect, inappropriate behavior or conduct toward others is unacceptable and will be addressed. An emphasis will be put on supporting the person or group of people that were subject to the behavior. Likewise, work will be done with the offending person/people so the behavior does not occur again. Examples include discussions, coaching, research. Part of this process might include restorative meetings, if all involved see it as appropriate and safe.
Chartwell is committed to exploring ways in which we can cultivate an inclusive work and school environment, strengthen our cultural competency, and educate our faculty, staff, students, and parents/guardians to provide opportunities for growth and development.
