At Chatfield we always focus simply on what is best for students. We know that students learn best in an environment of caring, respect, and high expectations; where the curriculum is engaging and hands on, and where strong relationships with their parents,teachers, and school staff are developed. Finally, we know that students learn best when they are called to be active participants in their school, environment,community, and world.With Chatfield’s unique classrooms and exploratory classes, gardens and outdoor learning spaces,the Willows Ecology Center, parent-partnership, and continually inspiring field study experiences, we confidently provide what is best for kids.

Unparalleled learning opportunities await Chatfield students.

Our wide variety of course offerings, and focus on character and service to the community allows students to explore their interests and passions at high levels and prepares them to be life-long learners focused on high school and college goals.
