A BRIEF HISTORY OF CHADWICK SCHOOLS

Founded in 1935 by visionary educator Margaret Lee Chadwick, Chadwick has grown and evolved
throughout its 83-year history, but the progressive vision of its founder remains a driving force behind the
school’s commitment to excellence and innovation. Thanks to generous donations of land and financial
support from the Vanderlip and Roessler families, Chadwick opened on its current campus in 1938 with
75 students. In 1963, the Roessler-Chadwick Foundation (RCF) was created to ensure Chadwick’s
long-term sustainability. In 2010, Chadwick International School Songdo (CISS) was formed in South
Korea, which expanded opportunities for students around the globe to benefit from a world-class Chadwick
education. CISS has been a spectacular success, growing in eight years from an opening enrollment of 270
to its current population of 1,200 students in grades Pre-K through 12. In 2014, the Roessler-Chadwick
Foundation Group (RCFG), was created as a parent entity for RCF and the two Chadwick schools in Palos
Verdes, USA, and Songdo, South Korea.

                                                                                                           3

Signature features of the Chadwick experience include the following:

   A deeply held belief in the educational aims and core values of the institution that are widely shared by
    all constituencies and that serve as the touchstone for the entire program.
   A commitment to excellence and continuous improvement.
   A comprehensive and integrated K-12 curriculum designed to provide Chadwick graduates with six
    Core Competencies that are highly desired by colleges and professions.
   An innovative spirit that has positioned the school as a national leader in numerous areas, most notably
    including its outdoor education and global programs.
   A remarkably cohesive community of students, teachers, staff, administrators, and parents who respect,
    support, and enjoy one another

OUR STUDENTS

Fifty neighborhoods are represented in Chadwick’s diverse student body, drawn from throughout the
Palos Verdes Peninsula and the South Bay, and from communities extending from Inglewood to Seal
Beach. As the only K-12 independent school in the region, Chadwick is a popular choice. This year, 612
families account for the 860 students, many of whom will attend the school throughout their entire K-12
career. Reflecting the rich diversity of Southern California, 45 percent of the students are persons of color.

To support economic diversity in the
student body, Chadwick offers need-based
scholarship assistance, totaling more than
$4 million this year. A $2 million
endowment grant in 2003 from the
prestigious Malone Family Foundation
and generous gifts from the MacFarlane
family enable the school to offer assistance
to talented students with financial need. In
2013, a group of 20 families spearheaded
the creation of the Delphinus Fund for
Financial Aid, which has already raised
more than $540,000 in endowment and
operating funds to increase the school’s
capacity to assist students. Eighteen
percent of the student body received aid this year.

Chadwick’s holistic mission attracts bright and ambitious students who are seeking a truly well-rounded
education. Students are engaged, curious, confident, articulate, adventurous, and accomplished. The
63-member Class of 2018 included 16 National Merit Scholars and Commended Students. Mean SAT
scores for that class were 710 Evidence Based Reading and Writing and 730 Math. The Mean ACT
Composite was 31. In May of 2018, Upper School students took 407 AP exams, earning scores of 3 or
better on 89.4 percent of the tests.

                                                                                                                 4

OUR FACULTY AND ADMINISTRATION

Chadwick boasts a senior administrative team that includes a mix of veterans and relative newcomers who
work together in a nurturing and stimulating environment.

   Senior academic administrators include the Assistant Head for Academic Affairs; the Directors of the
    three divisions; the Dean of Faculty and Staff; the Director of Athletics; and the Dean of Admission
    and Executive Director of College Counseling. Three dynamic senior staff members will lead the
    Center for Ethical Global Leadership, the Center for Innovation and Research and the Center for
    Community Wellness.
   Department Chairs, whose responsibilities cover grades 6-12, assist with curriculum planning and
    faculty evaluation.
   The senior operations team includes the Executive Director of Marketing and Communications,
    the Chief Financial Officer, the Executive Director of Development and Alumni Relations, the
    Director of Planning and Construction, and the Director of Risk Management and Transportation.

Meaningful student-faculty relationships lie at the heart of the Chadwick experience. With a school-wide
8:1 student-faculty ratio, small class sizes, and one college counselor for each 24 advisees, students are both
challenged and warmly supported. Beyond the classroom, the majority of faculty have significant
involvement as coaches, mentors, advisors, club sponsors, and trip leaders. A wide array of curriculum
specialists and support staff augments the work of the faculty.

Eighty percent of the faculty hold advanced degrees and, with an average tenure of 16 years, our teachers
are clearly passionate about Chadwick. In addition to their dedicated work with students, Chadwick
teachers contribute to a vibrant professional culture that promotes excellence and collaboration.
Professional Learning Communities meet twice monthly to explore topics of mutual interest; every Middle
and Upper School faculty member participates in at least one. Weekly meetings bring faculty together to
discuss issues of school culture and policy, while scheduled informal gatherings throughout the week
encourage community building. Curricular review and revision is an ongoing process, approached via the
                                                               well-respected Understanding by Design

THE PARENT PARTNERSHIP

The parent community at Chadwick is highly engaged and a vital component of the school culture. All
parents are automatically members of the active Chadwick Parents Association, and many also join
additional parent groups that specifically support athletics, theater arts, the library, and the Annual Fund.
These organizations tap the resources of the parent body to support the curricular and co-curricular
objectives of the school. Parents contribute in a wide range of ways: helping young students choose library
books, driving students to community service activities every week, and providing additional research and
internship opportunities at their places of business, for example. Grade-level coffees and social events
organized by parents build the bonds of community. Important school milestones are celebrated, families
are generously supported in times of personal crisis, and parent education is encouraged and provided
through outside speakers.

LOCATION AND FACILITIES

Chadwick’s hilltop campus is located on the scenic Palos Verdes Peninsula, which forms the southern end
of Santa Monica Bay. The Peninsula encompasses the communities of Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos
Verdes, Rolling Hills, and Rolling Hills Estates. Although situated in Los Angeles County, the Peninsula
offers a pastoral setting renowned for its natural beauty and outdoor lifestyle.

With stunning views of Los Angeles below, the Chadwick campus offers a beautiful, peaceful, and safe
setting for learning. At the heart of the college-like campus, Vanderlip Lawn provides a comfortable
gathering and study space. An open-air amphitheater seats the entire school.

A private canyon adjacent to campus functions as an outdoor classroom for science, English, and art
classes in all three divisions. A long-term canyon restoration project has helped hundreds of students
develop an understanding of and commitment to environmental sustainability. Close proximity to the
beach also allows Chadwick to incorporate activities such as sea kayaking and tide pool exploration into
its educational programs.

Twenty-two buildings dot the campus. Each division occupies its own dedicated spaces, with the Village
School separated into a Lower Village (for grades K-2) and an Upper Village (grades 3-6). Athletic facilities
include the Pascoe Pavilion Gymnasium, two fields, a track, and a swimming pool.

                                                                                                                6
Chadwick School Head of School Search - Educators Collaborative
Chadwick’s former incarnation (from 1938 to 1968) as a boarding school provides an opportunity for 24
faculty members and administrators to live on campus. This is an important recruitment and retention
tool, given the high cost of housing surrounding the school. Housing is also available for the Head of
School.

Facilities also include:
 The 400-seat Geoffrey Alan Laverty Center for the Performing Arts, with indoor theaters, classroom
    space, and dedicated dance and music studios that support the school’s award-winning arts program.
 The Cisco TelePresence (Videoconference) Room, which plays a key role in connecting Chadwick in
    Palos Verdes with Chadwick International for collaborative student activities and lessons, and faculty
    sharing of best practices.
 A Technology Center with eight fully equipped computer labs. Wireless access is available, indoors and
    out, throughout the campus.
 The Leavenworth Library Learning Center, housing 28,000 volumes and extensive online catalogues,
    as well as classrooms, lounges, and study room. Three full-time librarians staff the facility, which
    includes a separate age-appropriate library for Village students.
 Pascoe Pavilion Gymnasium and Swimming Pool; Commander Chadwick Football/Soccer/Lacrosse/
    Track Athletic Field; Baseball and Softball Athletics Fields

A number of facilities projects are planned as part of Boldly Forward: The Campaign for Chadwick School.

THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM

The five main capacities of the Chadwick mission —global citizenship, keen minds, exemplary character,
self-knowledge, and the ability to lead -- serve as the foundation of the educational program in all three
divisions. Teachers, advisors, and staff members support students on a journey of learning and personal
development, with an emphasis on earned self-confidence. Peer collaboration and teamwork are
encouraged and promoted at an early age in the Village School. As students move into the upper grades,
courses are designed to encourage classroom inquiry, sharing of ideas, mentorship, and thoughtful debate.
The new centers of innovation will strengthen the K-12 learning experience and deepen the educational
program at every level.

Upper School graduation requirements include 4 years of English; 3 years of history, math, and lab science;
completion of level-3 language study in Spanish, French, or Mandarin; and 1.5 years of arts. All students
participate in the outdoor education program every year, and physical education or interscholastic athletic
participation is required every season. AP courses are offered in 20 subject areas. As a member of the
Malone Schools Online Network, Chadwick also offers students the opportunity to take advanced courses
beyond AP-level courses.

OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES AWAITING THE NEXT HEAD OF SCHOOL
Chadwick’s next Head will lead a mission-centered independent school with an 83-year legacy established by
the forward-thinking Margaret Chadwick, who, in 1937, said, “The purpose of this school is to habituate
children to ways of living that are satisfying and worthwhile.” Solidly grounded in the mission and core
values, teachers and administrators enjoy the freedom to experiment and adapt the educational experience to
the requirements of an evolving world.

The next Head of School will have the privilege of joining a warmly connected community that embraces the
school’s adventurous spirit. Members of the school family are eager to welcome a leader who will continue to
inspire, engage, and strengthen the already remarkable connections that define this unique school. We are
seeking a dynamic and engaged leader who will bring strategic insights and fresh energy to Chadwick School,
and who is excited to help us contribute to and benefit from a global network of schools. As Margaret Chad
wick herself said, “Pioneering must be present in every school that is striving to meet the changing conditions
of life. Chadwick has done some little pioneering and has a great deal more of it ahead!”

Among the specific opportunities and challenges awaiting the next Head of Chadwick are the following:

schools. As RCF Group President, Mr. Hill is
leading the response to inquiries in conjunction
with the RCF Group Board of Directors.
Chadwick is actively exploring opportunities to
open another school in East Asia within the next
five years.

The new head of Chadwick School in Palos
Verdes will be expected to function in this highly
collaborative environment and will have the opportunity to design, create, and execute collaborative
programs with CISS and any other Chadwick school the organization may open around the world.

Positioning Chadwick for Long-term Sustainability

Though financially stable and well managed, like many independent schools Chadwick relies heavily on
tuition revenue, which accounts for 90 percent of the operating budget. Chadwick’s deeply connected
community constitutes an immense strength, but that asset remains largely untapped relative to its
tremendous potential. The newly launched $25 million Boldly Forward: The Campaign for Chadwick
School is changing that.

The goals of the Boldly Forward campaign are to:

   Provide research-based impetus to teaching and learning through the launching of three research-based
    educational centers: The Center for Innovation and Research; The Center for Community Wellness;
    and The Center for Ethical, Global Leadership.
   Build endowment support for financial aid.
   Increase on-campus faculty housing, which is a strategic advantage for our school in a market where the
    cost of housing is skyrocketing.
   Invest in Chadwick School’s infrastructure. The campaign includes new buildings to expand academic
    classrooms; renovation of Roessler Hall, the historic heart of the campus; and updates to athletic
    facilities, including a new weight room, locker rooms, and pool.

The campaign is managed by a seasoned fundraiser, Kerry Toolan, Chadwick’s Executive Director of
Development and Alumni Relations, and Ruth MacFarlane, a long-time Chadwick Trustee and donor.
The campaign launched the “quiet” (confidential) phase in spring 2018 under the guidance of Campbell &
Company consultants.

As the leader of a school deeply rooted in relationships, Chadwick’s new Head of School can help serve the
institutional advancement effort through personal outreach to prospective campaign donors.

The Head will also be expected to take the lead on annual giving, which generated $2.68 million last year
with a 90% family participation rate. Alumni participation increased to 12% compared to 7% the prior
year and represents an opportunity for continued growth.

More than 3,000 strong, the alumni body would welcome enhanced and more personal outreach that taps
into their love for the school and that extends beyond requests for donations. The school has recently
launched new initiatives to re-engage with alumni, including a professional networking group and
supporting app called Chadwick Connect that allows Chadwick alumni to network nationally and globally.
Recently instituted regional meetings with alumni have also been well received.

Chadwick’s stunning hilltop campus is both a defining strength and an operational challenge. The sole
point of access to the campus traverses a neighborhood whose residents are not always enthusiastic about
the school’s impacts on the neighborhood. Under the terms of a Conditional Use Permit (CUP), vehicular
traffic is regulated. Students must arrive by bus or carpool, and CUP restrictions limit Chadwick’s ability to
sponsor community events that would bring many visitors to the campus. The CUP is due for renewal in
2020 and the new Head will be part of the school’s efforts in this regard.

                                          Responding to an Increasingly Competitive Landscape

                                          Although it enjoys the distinction of being the only K-12
                                          independent coeducational day school in the greater South Bay
                                          Area, Chadwick operates in a competitive educational market-
                                          place. The affluent, diverse Palos Verdes Peninsula is served by
                                          excellent public schools and, increasingly, other Los Angeles
                                          independent schools that are broadening their outreach. The
                                          combination of declining birth rates and rising home prices has
                                          heightened awareness at Chadwick that the school must be more
                                          proactive in articulating its signature strengths. With the launch
                                          of the three new centers, and a deep commitment to K-12
                                          cross-curricular design, Chadwick has clearly articulated its
                                          unique vision and mission. In addition to its very strong
                                          academic program, prospective families will be drawn to its
                                          emphasis on exemplary character, self-knowledge, student
                                          wellness, and what it means to be a globally-minded ethical leader.

                                          The next Head of School will be called upon to offer both
                                          strategic leadership and a compelling public presence as an
advocate for the school in the admissions arena. In addressing these challenges, the new leader will have
strong support from two seasoned professionals. The highly experienced Executive Director of Marketing
and Communications, who joined Chadwick in 2015, has overseen the redesign of the school’s website and
publications to better highlight Chadwick’s signature strengths. The Dean of Admission and Executive
Director of College Counseling, a former Vice President and Dean of Admissions at Pomona College,
offers invaluable perspectives in both admissions and college counseling.

                                                                                                            10
Continuing to Refine Academic and Co-Curricular Programs

Leading the fine minds and remarkably creative energies of the teachers who deliver Chadwick’s expansive
educational program surely ranks among the best aspects of the head’s job. Programmatic excellence
abounds at the school, as do a steady stream of new ideas for strengthening an already exemplary
curriculum. Among the key challenges for the new Head of School will be marshalling and focusing that
creative energy in key strategic areas.

Among the current topics of discussion regarding the academic and co-curricular programs:

   How to recruit and retain a world-class faculty that is reflective of the world’s diversity.
   How to integrate the three Centers to create a cohesive K-12 learning experience, and how to best
    deliver it.
   How best to capitalize upon the connections between
    Chadwick and CISS.
   How to develop a community that is inclusive for
    students of all racial and socioeconomic backgrounds,
    sexual orientations, and gender identities.
   How to most effectively use and integrate educational
    technology.
   How to ensure that Chadwick’s ambitious students
    are not overburdened and unduly stressed by the
    myriad requirements and opportunities available to
    them.
   How to elevate environmental sustainability in the
    day-to-day lived experience of community members.
