Our Story

Each school building has a special story about how it evolved over time within the community. Cheltenham’s story started as an open school concept, which was an innovative way to think about education at the time. The school opened with the goal to provide the very best educational model for West Colfax’s community of families.

Today, we can still feel the heartbeat of the innovative spirit that started this beautiful school. We have the honor of building a program that will not only make our parents proud to send their children here each day, but also embodies the spirit that helped start this community school many years ago. We begin each day with the belief that we are here to serve the families that believe in Cheltenham.

We know that like each school has a unique story, so does every child. Each day we set out to make sure that we deliver the message to each child that they are valued, they are respected and they are a vital part of their own success story. We are in the business of uncovering the superpowers that live in the hearts of our children.

Cheltenham Elementary has turned a new corner. We are ready to write the chapter of success in the special story of our school. Come and discover what superpowers are within you!
