Chatom Elementary School
WE have a lot to learn today! MAKE it a great day!
Chatom Elementary School is located west of Turlock in a rural agricultural area, bordered by orchards, dairies and corn fields. We offer a rigorous academic program designed to meet state standards and challenge students to think creatively and problem solve. Full-day kindergarten and transitional kindergarten (TK) provide students with a solid academic foundation. Our students compete annually with other schools in the County Spelling Championship, Science Fair, and Elementary Science Olympiad. Our close-knit staff collaborates regularly to meet the needs of students and analyze student progress.
A reading and writing support teacher provides literacy remediation. A physical-education specialist provides instruction to grade 3-5 students.
We are proud of our after-school programs. We offer K-5 students homework help, academic intervention and enrichment electives. Enrichment course offerings vary, but currently students may choose from music, art, digital art, Spanish, rocket science, Yosemite Environmental Living Program, keyboarding, technology, hands-on science, or AR reading club. A late bus is provided for students who participate in after-school courses.
Chatom is a place where students can get a high-quality college prep education. Many of our students’ families have attended for multiple generations. Parents are actively involved in a partnership with Chatom staff to provide the best education for our students. Primary classes are 20:1 staff-to-student ratio. Intermediate classes are 32:1. We have 400 students enrolled.
Providing a safe and positive learning environment for students is our first priority. All students are expected to conduct themselves in a responsible manner, showing courtesy and respect toward all individuals and property.
