Charlestown School Image
  • Charlestown Elementary has a long history that led up to our current building and student body. In the fall of 1959, the present Charlestown School was organized and opened as a six-room school. Since then, additional rooms were added on several occasions, and a room for Prekindergarten was completed in 1998. The school went through a complete renovation from 2002 - 2004, doubling the size of the original school.

    At the present time, Charlestown Elementary serves 265 students in Pre Kindergarten through Grade 5. We pride ourselves on getting to know each student well in order to serve their individual needs. Our dedicated staff, parents, PTA, and business partner provide a wonderful environment for learning.
