WELCOME TO FLATIRONS ELEMENTARY!
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.
Literacy teacher’s work with small student groups using research based reading and writing instruction. While we have a focus on literacy and math, our staff is well-versed in strategies to integrate science, social studies and the arts.
A hallmark of our school is the inclusion of students with different learning needs in regular classrooms. This is accomplished by a teaching staff that believes all children can learn and an expert special education staff that provides specialized programming options for all students.
Historically our staff, parents and students give us very high marks regarding all of the areas measured by the districts’ 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.
