Why Eagleton?

Our Mission:

Together, the diverse Eagleton community respects, nurtures and inspires a passion for creative thinking and lifelong learning while building a strong academic foundation.

Located in the Villa Park area of North West Denver, Eagleton is a neighborhood school with a population of approximately 420 students from 2 half day ECE (3 year olds), 4 half day ECE classes (4year olds), 3 full day kindergartens through 5th grade. Eagleton serves a population of students with about 96% Free and Reduced Lunch rate. As a TNLI (Transitional Native Language Instruction) school we provide instruction in Spanish as needed to Spanish speakers and daily English language development instruction. Additionally, Eagleton is a center school for the Multi-Intensive Autism program for students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.

Eagleton students receive a strong, standards-based education in reading, writing, mathematics, social studies and science. We use Thinking Maps throughout the content areas to teach students thinking skills. Literacy is a priority at Eagleton. We work to make sure our students have the necessary knowledge and skills to become successful readers and writers. We are excited to have a partnership with the Carmel-Hill organization that provides us with Accelerated Reader, a computer-based motivational reading program that combines books with technology to motivate students to higher levels of independent reading. The writing curriculum emphasizes teaching students how to write in a variety of genres: personal narratives, expository essays, research papers, “how-to” instructions, fictional stories, poetry and responses to literature. We use Write from the Beginning to teach structure and develop the writing skills of our students. Eagleton students read and write every day.

Our mathematics curriculum is progressive and diverse. We use the Everyday Math Curriculum that provides students with not only math basics, but engaging math games. In addition, this year we will schedule a Math Night to assist parents in understanding our program and providing strategies to parents to better help their student succeed.
