Dimmsdale Elementary School is a school in which children in Dimmsdale, including Timmy Turner, attend. It has students through 6th grade.


This is a public school in the city of Dimmsdale. Many of Timmy's acquaintances are seen here, usually as a part of his class. The school hired Denzel Crocker, (perhaps an indication of a limited budget or simply being like most schools that have a few crazy teachers). The students consider the cafeteria food gross. The popular kids appear to get better treatment in terms of food, lunch table seating, bus seating, and admiration from their teachers, (perhaps because Tad and Chad are from wealthy families).


The school principal is Geraldine Waxelplax, who is actually very nice and cheery as long as no one is causing trouble, although she sometimes gets angry at Chester and A.J.'s meddling and needs to be calmed by being given a tuna sandwich or a cookie. Other teachers at the school include the smoof-obsessed Mr. Birkenbake, the effeminate drama and art teacher Mr. Bickles, an unnamed Spanish teacher, an unnamed science teacher, another Unnamed Teacher that hates Mr. Crocker, and of course, Denzel Crocker himself, who is the laughingstock of the whole school.


A number of students who attend Dimmsdale Elementary presently include Timmy Turner himself; his friends Chester and A.J.; his back-up friends Sanjay and Elmer; the popular kids Trixie Tang, Veronica, Tad and Chad; Francis the school bully; and Vicky's little sister Tootie. Mark Chang also sometimes hangs around the school; it is one of his favorite places because Yugopotamians love what humans hate, and most human kids hate school and cafeteria food which Mark loves. In The Secret Origin of Denzel Crocker, it is revealed that Waxelplax, Mr. and Mrs. Turner, Crocker, and Dinkleberg were students at Dimmsdale Elementary School, and it can be assumed that Vicky, Vic, Sheldon Dinkleberg and any other long-time resident of Dimmsdale went through their public school system.

The school is a white building with a purplish tint, most of the building is just one story but there is a tower in the middle at the front of the school. The symmetrical and simplistic architecture suggests it was built in the 1950's. Inside the school looks like a typical American public school but with lockers, which elementary schools typically don't have. It has a cafeteria, and classrooms with school desks. There is also a sizable playground and recess area outside which includes basketball and tetherball courts. In the movie, the school is a white building and has the same lettering and flag.
