The name Chevallum is believed to be a corruption of local Aboriginal words "cha-balan" meaning "flat place".
Chevallum State School opened on 1 November 1921. It caters for student Prep to Year 6.  In 1924 it became a half-time school sharing a teacher with Ilkey State School. Later in 1924, it resumed as a full-time school.
Chevallum is known for its strawberries and participates in the local Strawbfest. It has a local permaculture group devoted to organic and sustainable farming, which holds regular meetings at Chevallum School. Chevallum School is participating in a national educational reform called the "New Basics", which promotes "Futures Oriented" education based on active citizenship, life pathways, interaction with the environment, and communication.
