As Friendship’s founding campus nestled on Capitol Hill, Chamberlain Elementary and Middle shines as a beacon of exceptional student achievement. A multiyear, top-performing Tier 1 campus, Chamberlain places students on a proven pathway to academic success.
In an era where teacher-to-student ratios are increasingly more difficult to manage, Chamberlain places two teachers in each classroom to provide superior instruction. This approach affirms that each Chamberlain Elementary student in pre-K3-3 receive individually paced instruction instilling the knowledge, skills, success habits and character traits that lead to scholastic excellence for years to come.
Consistent with Friendship’s college preparatory approach, grades 4-8 at Chamberlain Middle follow a robust and culturally diverse curriculum that builds a mastery of core academic content, introduces prerequisites for Advanced Placement courses and nurtures students who will approach Friendship’s high-performing high school environment with confidence.
Praised as a wellspring of great teaching, Chamberlain is home to Friendship’s 2015 and 2016 Teacher of the Year winners.
