History of Chadwick

Chadwick School has grown significantly since opening in 1935, but the legacy of its founder, Margaret Lee Chadwick, remains a driving force behind the school’s continued development. Chadwick has more than 800 students in kindergarten through Grade 12 and has graduated more than 3,000 students.


One of Chadwick's most significant milestones is the founding in 2010 of Chadwick International School in Songdo, South Korea, expanding opportunities for students around the globe to benefit from a world-class Chadwick education and become lifelong members of the Chadwick Community.


For a complete history, visit Chadwick’s Leavenworth Library or the Local History Room of Palos Verdes Peninsula Library. Both house all of the books Mrs. Chadwick wrote about the school, as well as yearbooks from each graduating class.
