About Us

Chipeta Elementary School

Chipeta is a community united to ensure that all learners grow and thrive. At our school:

  • learning is personalized.
  • learners ask and answer questions in a safe and supportive environment.
  • strong partnerships and family involvement enhance learning.

These attributes contribute to Chipeta being recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence and a Colorado John Irwin School of Excellence year after year.

Students at Chipeta engage in dynamic experiences which develop the whole child and create vital links between academics and the real world.

Our personalized approach to teaching and learning empowers students to progress through objectives at their own pace, promoting acceleration and the development of essential academic and life skills.

We do so much more than teach reading, writing, and math. A culture of joy and empowerment encourages learners to take their thinking deeper, to wonder, and to inquire. Students take ownership of their learning, which promotes resilience, strengthens self-concept, encourages positive choices, and develops open mindsets about learning.

Visual and performing arts classes coupled with after-school enrichment opportunities motivate children to discover and develop their passions and talents.

Chipeta Elementary School is a fantastic place for children, families and staff to learn, grow, and thrive!

We welcome you!
