Douglass Elementary School serves around 450 students from the communities of east Boulder, Lafayette, Louisville and Erie in preschool through 5th grade. We take pride in our many years of high academic achievement and student growth, which has been acknowledged at the state and national level with honors such as the John Irwin and Governor's Distinguished Improvement Awards from the Colorado Department of Education, and the National Blue Ribbon School Award from the U.S. Department of Education.
While those honors for our academics are significant, Douglass Elementary knows that we are responsible for teaching to the whole child, and the development of the character of our children is equally important. We have implemented Random Acts of Kindness as our core social-emotional learning program, which provides targeted lessons for all students in problem-solving, conflict resolution, stress reduction, and much more.
At Douglass, WE CARE: Community, Achievement, Relationships, Environment.
Douglass Elementary School is a nurturing environment where students achieve academic excellence, build strong character, engage in arts and athletics, and succeed as thoughtful leaders in the 21st Century. Our mission is to provide learning opportunities that foster caring, creativity, academic excellence, and leadership.
