About Our School:

​Flatirons Elementary is a neighborhood school with a long tradition of offering an outstanding educational experience for students in kindergarten through fifth grade. This is accomplished through the efforts of an excellent collaborative faculty and staff, supportive and energetic parents, an innovative learning community, and students aspiring to become lifelong learners motivated to fulfill their highest potential. The goal is for every child’s experience at Flatirons to promote success.



Program Characteristics:

Flatirons is a relatively small neighborhood school. We continue to serve second and third generation Flatirons families. Ninety parent, community and university volunteers work in our classrooms weekly. They help teachers differentiate their instruction by using small, flexible group instruction.

Historically our staff, parents and students give us very high marks regarding all of the areas measured by the district's revised “Snapshot” survey and by the new Flatiron’s School Improvement Team survey. Communication between the school and home is a focus of every classroom and the school as a whole.

The staff is highly experienced at providing a strong academic program and a social and emotional program that strives to ensure students leaving our school are competent, caring, contributing members of society. Students are confronted with an instructional program that has high expectations and is presented in developmentally appropriate contexts. Service learning activities are an expected part of every child’s experience every year.

What parents say …

“It was the feel of Flatirons as a safe, fun, disciplined and friendly place.”

“The strong sense of community/high parent involvement.”

“We wanted to support and be part of our neighborhood schools – and we have loved that aspect of Flatirons.”

“We came to this school mid-year. As newcomers, we were warmly welcomed to Flatirons and have been impressed by the school overall.”

“We’re new to this district, so I can’t speak about other schools, but the principal and the team at Flatirons Elementary have a wonderful school. I would volunteer there even if I didn’t have a student. . . it’s a great environment.”



Principals Message:

​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 community.

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
