Chatfield High School - 205 Union St NE, Chatfield, MN 55923 - 507.867.4210

Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to Chatfield High School!

Chatfield High School students learn in an environment that prepares them to thrive in a world of change. It is impossible to know all of the opportunities and challenges our students will see in the future. Therefore, they must be equipped with skills and knowledge that can apply in new and creative ways. To achieve these ends, great attention is given to the specific learning needs of each student. We offer comprehensive educational, athletic, and co-curricular opportunities for our students.  If we are successful, our graduates will continue to learn and build on their Chatfield High School experiences, regardless of where their futures take them.

The involvement of the Chatfield community is central to our district's mission of equipping our learners. The residents of our district exemplify the slogan “proud of the past, providing for the future” by celebrating our school’s long history of excellence while also continuing to support our current students. In return, our students build lasting relationships and represent our community with integrity and excellence. 

Whether you are a new student or a guest in our building, we look forward to meeting you when you come to our school.

Go, Gophers!

Congratulations to our AAA Award winners for the Class of 2023!

Peyton Ellis and Jackson Schild!!

This award is presented at each Minnesota high school to the male and female students that have demonstrated top accomplishments in the Arts, Athletics, and Academics. It is the most prestigious award that the MSHSL offers to students. Obviously, both Jackson and Peyton are great students and are involved in a large number of activities. They are also both great young adults and represent us well whenever they compete for our school. They will now advance to the section-level competition. Good Luck!
