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.

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! View our  School Google Calendar!
