Many families, currently living or recently established in Canada, have specifically chosen to live in West Vancouver to ensure the quality of education for their children. Parents select Chartwell Elementary, as we are renowned for our high academic standards, for providing a warm, caring, safe, and inclusive environment. Chartwell School serves approximately 240 children. Our international profile and proactive diversity programs benefiting both local and international students alike add to Chartwell’s uniqueness. With at least half of our students being born outside of Canada from 21 different countries from around the world and with at least 14 different languages spoken, it is indeed a diverse and multicultural population. Consequently, our students are offered the unique opportunity to enhance their learning within a true global community. Despite the challenges that come with such diversity, we strive to build a common language of trust, caring and kindness. We take pride in, and celebrate our multicultural make up and view it as a wonderful opportunity for our students to learn about culture, community and citizenship in a global atmosphere.

The purpose of Chartwell Elementary School’s Code of Conduct is to establish guidelines and expectations for acceptable student conduct to maintain a safe environment conducive to learning.

Students are expected to behave in an appropriate manner while at school and while attending any school-related activity at any location.

All parent/caregiver, visitors and volunteers are required to enter through the front doors and report to the school office to sign in. Parents and caregivers need to make prior arrangements before entering learning spaces during the school day.
