Chamberlain’s socio-economically and ethnically diverse student population is a wonderful microcosm of the world. We believe that neither socio-economics or ethnicity will determine the educational excellence of a child. To that end, the staff is well trained in “best practices” and the most effective ways to reach academic and character excellence. At Chamberlain, we identify, build upon, and publicly recognize strengths of every student. Each child is treated as an individual with his or her own signature and as an important teammate in the larger school community.
Chamberlain Mission Statement
Chamberlain is a community of parents, students and staff working together to instill in each other a positive self-image, individual responsibility, a desire to be lifelong learners/problem solvers, and to be the best we can be.
For the last two years Chamberlain has met all academic Average Yearly Progress (AYP) standards set by the federal government. At the end of 200-/2004, Chamberlain was designated an I-Read Demonstration School, inviting other schools with Chamberlain’s demographics to observe our academic initiatives and progress.

A Tradition of Progress
Chamberlain Elementary School has resided at its present location since 1862. The current building, constructed in 1939, was remodeled in 1955 and 1986. We will add four new classrooms in 2006. The classic architecture of the building will remain intact as we add to our facility.
