For over 50 years, Chandler School, an independent primary and middle school, has championed self-esteem and personal responsibility. It is a place where character is valued and where there is more than one way to teach and learn. They chose First Republic because it also is not a "typical" place of business. First Republic has a dedicated staff of nonprofit and independent school experts who value flexibility and who always strive to identify the best solutions in an environment of fast-paced change. First Republic's new tax-exempt financing for nonprofits to put toward renovation and new construction was a perfect fit for Chandler School.
