Chartwell is an elementary school, providing full day Kindergarten through Grade 7.

The school is situated in the beautiful British Properties, overlooking Vancouver and the Burrard Inlet. We have extensive school grounds for the students’ use during recess, lunch and gym. This includes two separate playground structures, a natural gravel field, upper soccer and basketball courts and a secured play area for our youngest primary students.

Programming at Chartwell is designed to support and to challenge the unique talents of all students as well as to develop leadership skills, character and social responsibility.

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 260 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.

Chartwell is a Rights Respecting School (RRS), an initiative of UNICEF Canada's Global Classroom program. This initiative uses the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child as the basis for enhancing an inclusive, participatory and respectful school culture for children and adults. 

As a framework for educational improvement, the initiative helps to address the whole learning environment through a consistent, rights-based approach. It is premised on the understanding that in order for children to want to achieve, they have to feel included, that they belong and that they matter. It brings children into early contact with the universal ideals of respect for oneself and for others in the school community and the world around them.
