Chartwell School


Chartwell School empowers bright students with language-based learning differences, including dyslexia. We do this in grades K-12 by offering them the knowledge, creativity, and skills in self-advocacy and perseverance needed to thrive in college and beyond.

The Big Idea

It is estimated that one in five children struggle to read making it nearly impossible to process information quickly and accurately enough to succeed in a regular classroom. This does not need to be the case. Reading is a code and the ability to read is neither natural nor instinctive but must be taught. For 35 years Chartwell has been the leader on the Central Coast of California teaching children to read so that they may unlock this code and discover the joy of learning.

Because of Chartwell, the wonderful teachers, and especially the college counselor, I'm going to a great college. I've been at Chartwell since the 4th grade and wouldn't want to go anywhere else.
