Head of School

Since 1950, Chandler School has provided children with an excellent education during their formative years. From kindergarten through eighth grade, we lead our students through an engaging academic program, nurture each learner’s well-being and focus on character and connection to create an environment in which each member of our community feels a genuine sense of belonging. At Chandler, you’ll find we are Caring, Challenging and Committed in all of our endeavors.

Chandler students are inspired by our dedicated faculty, administration and support staff who champion each child’s development and success. Class sizes are intentionally small and our facilities are designed to encourage our students’ growth and ambitions in all academic disciplines, athletics and the arts. Whether they are analyzing a DNA sequence in a science lab, learning to ride a unicycle on the Sport Court or starring in a musical production of Hairspray Jr. in the Ahmanson Foundation Performing Arts Center, Chandler students have the resources, attention and encouragement they need to navigate the extraordinary journey from childhood to adolescence. 

Centered by our mission and core values, Chandler continues to evolve and innovate as we prepare tomorrow’s changemakers for an increasingly complex and interconnected world. I encourage you to explore our website, review our Strategic Plan, Leading Together 2022-2027, and visit our beautiful campus to see our efforts and impact in action. Our entire team is eager to share with you about our commitment to providing each student in our care with the highest quality and most academically challenging education in our nurturing, balanced and diverse environment.

Warm regards, 
Emily Brown, Head of School
