Grow Today, Transform Tomorrow

At The Chestnut Hill School, we believe childhood optimism and enduring curiosity can transform the world. Here, students in preschool through grade 6 find meaning and joy in a diverse community that encourages all to question, to take risks, and to think critically as they grow into intellectually skilled, empathetic, self-empowered young learners.

Joyful Today, Fulfilled Tomorrow

When children see learning as meaningful, purposeful, and joyful, they naturally develop the skills and confidence to achieve educational success.  CHS students excel because they are happy, supported, and known. 


Curious Today, Innovative Tomorrow

By encouraging children to ask interesting questions, and to do the research to find the answers, children learn to embrace creativity and flexible thinking. Our thoughtful, balanced curriculum creates students who believe in themselves as learners and problem solvers.



Kind Today, Conscious Tomorrow

Children who are taught to care about the rights and feelings of others, while expressing their own thoughts and beliefs, become responsible, contributing members of the world.

Think Big, and Grow Slow

What would the world be like if we let childhood last a little longer? If we allowed children to think big, and grow slow? If we encouraged individuality while building empathy? At The Chestnut Hill School, we do just that.
