Lower School

Through Grade 6

Chartwell School provides a comprehensive academic program which includes all areas of reading and language instruction, mathematics, social studies, science, wellness and fitness, the arts, technology and a wide array of enrichment activities. Students master and build academic skills one layer at a time. Each layer integrates higher-order thinking skills, creativity, perseverance and problem solving.

Students at Chartwell are grouped by ability, rather than traditional grade levels, for language and math placement. This allows for small group instruction that addresses the student’s specific academic needs. Teachers at Chartwell are specially trained to work with students with dyslexia and use effective teaching strategies to engage students in the learning process and provide opportunities for them to experience success. Guiding students to learn how they learn, not just what they learn, will empower them throughout their school years to be independent learners and advocates for their academic needs.
