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 close-knit staff collaborates regularly to meet the needs of students and analyze student progress. Many of our students’ families have attended for multiple generations and parents are actively involved in a partnership with Chatom staff to provide the best education for our students. 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.
