LAPEER — The Chatfield School, a tuition-free, public school academy nestled in the heart of Lapeer, offers the best educational opportunities for students in grades K-8. Every parent wants to provide their child with a quality education that prepares them for future success. Chatfield is the best choice for children because of our student, parent, teacher partnership where all partners work together to provide the best learning opportunities for each child and prepare each child for life-long learning.

What is best for the child is always at the heart of education at The Chatfield School. Children learn by doing. Chatfield classrooms, campus and grounds are designed to be unique learning spaces for children. The Chatfield educational experience is one that includes active participation in learning whether it is through unique classroom experiences or field studies outside of the school. Students in kindergarten through eighth grade are continually engaged; students do not just take in content; but experience and internalize information for authentic learning. Partnering together we provide students with incredible learning opportunities and are making an investment in each student’s future, higher education.

Chatfield is always growing, evolving, and raising the standards for quality education. Each student in grades 5-8 is assigned their own lap top computer to enhance learning opportunities both in the classroom and at home. In the coming year, new, unique engineering and science courses will be offered.

All graduates of the Chatfield Middle School program are eligible for $2,000 to $8,000 in scholarships at Saginaw Valley State University upon competition of high school.

The Willows Ecology Center and its unique learning activities as well as Chatfield’s vast array of technology offerings are key components of Chatfield’s science, technology, engineering, and math curriculum.

Fine arts, service learning, athletics, clubs and enrichments are all part of the Chatfield learning experience and are taught at the highest caliber.

Chatfield is recognized by the Department of Education as a State School of Excellence, School of Character, and is ranked in the top 14 percent of all public schools in the state. Chatfield is also recognized as a School to Watch by the National Forum to Reform Middle Grade Education. But, at the heart of it all, Chatfield is simply what is best for each child.
