Overview
  • About El Dorado Elementary School

    El Dorado is a diverse school where teachers, staff, and parents come together to ensure the achievement of all students. El Dorado's focus is the creation of an environment that promotes teaching the whole child. The school invests its energies in programs that meet the academic and social needs of all students and uses standards-based instructional practices like Balanced Literacy. We believe in empowering teachers by creating a trusting, nurturing, and professional environment that allows them to think critically and create out of the box solutions for our community. Our teachers use the language of scholars and critical thinkers to provide our students with the tools to access and navigate future professional and academic opportunities. We believe in recognizing students' strengths and needs to help them achieve their full potential.

    We offer students extended learning opportunities that allow them to explore areas of learning beyond traditional academics. These programs include expanded visual and performing arts experiences with professional artists and musicians, as well as science and outdoor education partnerships with Kids in Parks and Excelsior Science Center. We also host monthly events that incorporate school-wide programs, such as Harvest of the Month, Cultural Assemblies, Literacy Night and Math Night.
