GSElementaryOur School

The Board of Education unanimously approved conversion of Glenwood Springs Elementary School to an Expeditionary Learning School for the 2013-2014 school year. Expeditionary Learning is an approach to education that makes information and skills come alive for students by connecting learning to the real world. Students are challenged to think critically and take active roles in both their classrooms and their community through expeditions, projects, research and fieldwork. For more information on Expeditionary Learning visit elschools.org

 

Our Town

Glenwood Springs is located at the confluence of the Colorado and Roaring Fork rivers just off Interstate 70. This historic town is famous for the mineral-rich waters of Glenwood Hot Springs and Pool attracting visitors for over 125 years and the towering walls of the 16-mile Glenwood Canyon which was carved by the force of the Colorado River and snow-melt from the Continental Divide. Other attractions include the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, skiing at Sunlight Mountain Resort, rafting, hiking, mountain and road cycling and much more. According to the U.S. Census Bureau the city population in 2010 was 9,614. Glenwood Springs is also the county seat of Garfield County. For more information on Glenwood Springs visit the Glenwood Springs Chamber site.

Habits of a Scholar

At GSES, we know that there is a relationship between our “habits” of work and learning and student achievement. Practicing our five habits help us to “do our best” and “be our best” in school and life every day.

Teamwork: I can work with others to achieve a common goal.
