With the start of school a week away, Middle School students converge on campus to retrieve their locks and decorate their lockers.
|Bridge to Middle School|
Each year, incoming sixth- and seventh-graders new to Chandler participate in the Bridge program, designed to make Chandler familiar to the students and vice versa. For the first week of the program, those students are joined by rising sixth-graders who attended Chandler's Lower School for afternoon sessions of games, organizational challenges and more.
|Fifth grade promotion|
Fifth-graders in the Class of 2017 reflect on their time in Chandler's Lower School during Promotion, their final act before officially becoming Middle School students.
Fourth-graders conclude their study of California history with the annual Pioneer Day.
A variety of Lower School students demonstrate a variety of talents in the Lower School Variety Show.
|Leaving a mark|
Students venture down to the construction site of the new parking structure and Tower to sign the lagging beams being installed along the hillside, leaving their school-sanctioned mark on Chandler's campus.
|Head of School's Message: June 9|
“The mission of Chandler School is to provide each student with the highest quality and most academically challenging education in a nurturing, balanced and diverse environment. We strive to have our students gain a love of learning, a means of thinking independently and an ability to work collaboratively. A Chandler education seeks to develop good character, self-reliance and a commitment to community in students as a foundation for academic and personal success.”
As the 2013-2014 school year comes to a close this week, and you reflect on the past nine months, ask big questions about Chandler’s mission. What has my child achieved this year? Has the program been appropriately challenging? Has a love of learning been nurtured? Is my child a better person with a stronger sense of self? Have the teachers taken good care of my child?
