Mission and Goals

Chandler School Mission

Chandler’s mission 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.


Chandler School is committed to building and sustaining a diverse, equitable and inclusive community in which the empathy of every member guides our understanding of human differences. We affirm, honor, celebrate, and value our individual and collective likenesses and differences. 
We believe….Diversity is an essential manifestation of our core values. We are intentional in actively building a community of students, families, faculty, staff, and alumni with diverse thoughts, cultures, backgrounds, and experiences. By leveraging learnings from our diverse community, we prepare our students for a changing, multicultural society.
We believe….Equity is the foundation for building a successful learning environment. We examine our biases and strive to eliminate inequities so we can be better equipped at supporting the various ways in which we learn. We are committed to developing better teaching strategies and cultivating classrooms that expose all Chandler students to a range of opportunities, resources and experiences that allow them to make choices on their path toward academic and personal success. 
We believe….Inclusiveness creates opportunities for deepened cultural understanding, heightened engagement and critical dialogue. Our curriculum is designed to support programs that foster each student’s global and cultural empathy and encourage productive thinking and respectful discourse.
In the spirit of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Chandler’s traditions evolve. We are on a continuous journey with a common mission of making a better school, community, nation, and world.
