About Us

Welcome to Franktown Elementary school, a place where everybody knows your name. Franktown Elementary is a school of about 340 students prek-5th on the southeastern border of Douglas County School District. We are in a rural setting; children who attend our school come from high density neighborhood settings to large acreage ranches. Franktown Elementary is an excellent place to be a learner. We have many of the same amenities new schools offer to their students, including a complete menu of technology based learning tools in each classroom. Beyond the walls of our building and the fixtures we have in place, the attributes that make our school such a great place are the people of our school community - our students, our staff, and our families. Together we strive to share the ownership of our school and the learning that takes place within it. Everyone has a role in the process of constantly evaluating our work….. to prepare our students for the world 20-30 years from now. To that end, we look at the academic testing required by state level mandates, the School Performance Framework provided by the Colorado Department of Education, and MAP or Measure of Academic Performance data on a regular basis to monitor the growth of every student. We must ensure their growth by having the appropriate interventions in place to support every learner. As an entire school community, we examine data at staff and SAC meetings. During these meetings we review the information, make and implement appropriate programming changes and continue to monitor our progress and adjust our work. Beyond our academic efforts to ensure every learner exceeds academic growth expectations, we hold in the forefront of our work the concept of preparing our students for a world we don’t know exists yet. Therefore, our most important work is to instill a growth mindset of learning in every student. Each one of our students must be highly adaptable to be prepared for an ever-changing world.
