Chandler is one of the top K-8 schools in California, with a well-deserved reputation for academic excellence. The program is outstanding and the students are bright, motivated, hard-working, and talented, yet the community is down to earth and humble. Parents volunteer a ton of hours (by choice - there is no requirement to volunteer) at this school, and are committed to the community. Teachers are professional and serious about their craft. They aim to inspire as well as teach, and they connect with many different types of students and work with parents. The opportunities are also quite amazing in art, PE and sports, music, community service, and debate (middle school). Graduates of the school go on to top area high schools and are extremely well prepared, not only in the classroom but as caring and compassionate and well-rounded people.

Chandler provides the perfect amount of academic rigor to challenge young minds and prepare them for the year(s) ahead. They offer immersive programming that integrates multiple subjects and team work. The lower school and the middle school leaders and teachers collaborate to make sure 5th graders are ready for middle school and beyond. Chandler has a multitude of sports teams and offers exposure to a much larger variety of sports during the lower school years. Chandler also has amazing art and music teachers who engage the creative sides of our children's brains. The facility is incredible, the community of parents is fantastic and my kids look forward to every school day with a smile on their faces. Thank you Chandler!
