Flatirons Elementary School is a neighborhood school
with a long tradition of offering an outstanding educational experience for
students in kindergarten through fifth grade. We accomplish this through the
efforts of an excellent collaborative faculty and staff, supportive and
energetic parents, an innovative inclusive learning community, and students
aspiring to become lifelong learners by being curious, creative, analytical,
adaptable and motivated to fulfill their highest potential.
One of the keys to our students’ continued academic,
social and emotional growth is the partnership between staff and parents. Nearly
90 percent of our parents volunteer in some capacity at school, along with a
large number of CU students. We average a 10/1 adult-student ratio in the
classrooms. An excellent staff and strong parent support are critical to giving
each child a positive learning experience at Flatirons.
This child-centered focus on learning happens as
teachers assess student progress daily to guide their instruction. Teachers
participate in extensive staff development throughout the year and regularly
meet in grade-level teams to ensure consistency in grade-level curriculum.
Vertical articulation meetings in kindergarten through fifth grade create a
comprehensive educational experience for each child.
We hope that every child’s experience at Flatirons
promotes success academically, socially and emotionally. Through an emphasis on
conflict resolution and problem solving, we provide the students with the skills
needed to be able to interact positively with peers at school and in the
We are excited about what happens each day at
Flatirons, and we encourage you to come in and observe first hand all that we
have to offer.
Sincerely,Scott Boesel, Principal
