Greetings, and Welcome!

Nestled in the rura l dairy lands of North Petaluma, Dunham Elementary Charter School serves 200 students in grades TK-6.  Our small size affords us the ability to know every family and child on a personal level: their likes, their learning styles, and their dreams.  With only one class per grade level, our kids feel a real sense of family and stability as they grow up together.

At Dunham we offer:   

  • Small Class Sizes Individual Attention
  • Project and Tech-Based Learning
  • One laptop per child
  • Beautiful Country Setting
  • Garden, Drama, Spanish, P.E., and Music
  • Affordable Aftercare
  • Small Group instruction for remedial and accelerated learning
  • Strong community involvement 

Because Transitional Kindergarten and Kindergarten usually start the year with a waiting list, I always encourage parents to apply early. We conduct a lottery, and those who arrive early are typically able to secure a spot.  If you are interested in another grade level, give us a call for information about availability.  

If you would like meet with me personally and tour the campus, just call the office and schedule an appointment.  We also have a Facebook page, which can help give you a feel for the school and community.  "Like" us to receive updates!
