About Our School

John C. Fremont is in a small agricultural community in the Central San Joaquin Valley in California. In 1949, the citizens of Corcoran voted on a special tax to construct a new eight-classroom elementary school. The board of trustees asked the people of Corcoran to suggest a name for the new school. The new school was dedicated on April 28, 1950, and officially named John C. Fremont, after one of the United States’ leading western explorers in the 1830s and 1840s. Fremont is one of three elementary schools within Corcoran and serves all of the second and third grade students in the district. The dedicated Fremont staff is committed to providing a learning environment that promotes academic excellence for every child!
