Chesterfield Day School is a student-centered independent school that promotes the joy of learning, positive character development, and service to others. As a school tracing its origins to the Montessori philosophy, each child is allowed to explore meaningful work and stretch to the next level. Our Montessori roots encourage children to grow into resilient and independent learners, courageous risk takers, eloquent communicators, and active contributors to the larger community. Our dedicated and well-educated faculty are experts in their subject matter and child development, and provide our students with a personalized education from start to finish.
Our low student-to-teacher ratios allow our faculty to give individual attention to each student's needs – academically, socially and emotionally. By getting to know every child, our teachers are able to identify each student's strengths and style of learning in order to differentiate instruction, support performance and growth, and help every child reach his or her greatest potential.
