At the base of Arizona's majestic San Tan Mountains, among the rural dairy pastures, and surrounded by suburban communities, lies the "PRIDE" --Charlotte Patterson Elementary School. Patterson is known for founding the first dual-option programming in the area. Parents of students at Patterson have the option of enrolling their child in Classic Patterson or in CTA Patterson (Chandler Traditional Academy). This option allows parents to pick the instructional philosophy that best suits the needs of their child. Patterson also offers numerous after school clubs, fun-filled family events, and enjoys a very active PTO and supportive community members. Our school's reputation for high standards while maintaining the welcoming, charming environment of a smaller school, have established it as a leader in educating children.
