Polaris

Expeditionary Learning School

Elementary Program

Polaris' elementary program is a choice school within Poudre School District serving students in grades K – 5.  Through the national model of Expeditionary Learning (EL) we strive to nurture our student’ unique abilities so that they can grow to their fullest potential.  Unique to the Polaris elementary is the school-wide focus on inquiry-based learning, multiple off-campus fieldwork experiences, capping our elementary classes at 18, offering three recesses per day, school-wide community meetings each week, multi-age classrooms in grades 2 - 5, and looping at the Kindergarten/1st grade level.
