Coyote Ridge Elementary School
We provide our students with a challenging, inquiry-based education to:
- Pursue academic excellence
- Embrace differences
- Encourage lifelong learning
- Become responsible world citizens
- Foster personal growth and reflection
Coyote Ridge Elementary is part of the International Baccalaureate – Primary Years Program. This means that students receive instruction in the same Colorado Standards as all public schools in Colorado but with instructional strategies and techniques that help students to see the connections between the subjects, allowing them to construct their own understanding and make meaning of their world. Combining high expectations with high levels of support, we focus on all areas of a child’s development in a whole-child centered approach.
