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!

mayo clinic school of health sciences education

Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences Education is having an open house this Fall!   Our open house is a time for students to come and explore the many careers in healthcare outside of a doctor or nurse and talk directly to the program directors and current students. We will have about 22 programs participating this year and we will have hands on activities as well as tours of classrooms/lab/clinical spaces.  It is truly an exciting night with all the chatter that goes on and I am personally excited to be able to host it again!
