Chartwell School gets interim head of school

Kate Mulligan has been appointed interim head of school at Chartwell School, a private, K-12 institution designed for students diagnosed with language-based learning differences such as dyslexia.

In the announcement, trustees say Mulligan has demonstrated a lifelong commitment to education, teaching, learning, and children.

Most recently Mulligan was the head of school of Westside School in Seattle, Wash. She holds a BA in English from Dartmouth College, and an Ed.M. in Teaching Curriculum and Learning Environments from Harvard University.

"I look forward to working in partnership with our very talented division heads and dedicated teachers and staff to do the amazing and transformative work with children that was envisioned by our founders," Mulligan said.

Chartwell programs include self-advocacy skills training, art, music, sports, and technology. Chartwell’s social/emotional program is effective at addressing students’ anxiety and frustration due to classroom struggles brought about by learning differences.

"During my first month at Chartwell, I have been impressed by the level of caring and commitment in this community,"  Mulligan said. "Current and past parents alike have expressed tremendous gratitude to Chartwell for 'saving the lives' of their children."
