Mr. Nicolas Perez


Welcome to Cheltenham Elementary School...home of the dolphins!

I am Nicolas Perez, proud Principal of Cheltenham Elementary. Thank you for visiting us and for your interest in Cheltenham School District. I encourage you to explore our website and learn more about the people and programs that make Cheltenham Elementary School such a great place for kindergarten through fourth graders to learn and grow.

As Principal, it is my duty to offer a school and classroom environment that is safe, supports risk-taking, and promotes growth. I believe that every child has the right to learn in a secure, caring and stimulating atmosphere. The education of your child is a team effort. The amazing Cheltenham Elementary faculty and staff are dedicated to helping students succeed academically, developmentally and as citizens of a supportive community. Together, we work hard to nurture and guide our K-4 students and truly enjoy watching them aquire foundational knowledge while in our care.  

Schools and families working together is one of the most powerful tools there is in the development of a child. The Cheltenham Elementary School experience is enhanced by the strong efforts of our PTO through fundraising and volunteer programs. I encourage you to become involved.
