 Our Success For All curriculum is designed to meet each individual need. Our "Roots" program consists of 48 books which take the children through the first grade year of reading. For our higher level learners, we have "Wings" classes which are based on reading ability. 




Students begin first grade math with an emphasis on demonstrating number sense. We work with counting, ordering, and grouping of numbers. As the year progresses, the students cover such topics as number patterns, thermometers, measurement, clocks, telling time, money, and place value. Addition and subtraction skills are taught, and by the end of the year, the students have gained mastery of many addition facts. 


Our science curriculum consists of 3 Units of study: Living Things, Solids, Liquids, and Gas, and Pebbles, Sand and Silt. 

 Social Studies

Our social studies units use literature, small group activities, and discussions to learn about communities, getting along with each other, important historical figures, and cultural celebrations. We learn about maps, discover what life was like a long time ago, and look at Colorado's history.


Our students learn the 10 Core Principles of our school: citizenship, perseverance, respect, responsibility, integrity, honesty, courage, compassion, hope, and excellence.
