Greetings, and Welcome!

 Nestled in the rural 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. 

Upcoming Events

Mon-Fri, August 3-7:   Dunham’s Adventure Summer Camp
Mon-Fri, August 10-14:   Dunham’s Space Summer Camp
Friday, August 14:   “All aboard TK/K”
Wednesday, August 19:   1st Day of School!

 We are hiring for our TK Instructional Aide position and also for our after-school daycare!


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 Kindergarten usually starts the year with a waiting list, I always encourage parents to apply early. We conduct one lottery per month, 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!  

Thanks for visiting - 

Adam Schaible, Principal/Superintendent
