• At Abrams Elementary School, we believe that ALL students are capable of learning and achieving at high levels.

    We care about and affirm one another. We believe in and do what’s best for kids.   Every child will make a minimum of a year’s growth in a year’s time.

     

    Our core belief is that all of our students are capable of learning at very high levels.    By building strong relationships in classrooms and across our school community, we are able to create learning opportunities for all of our students, whether they are at our school for the long term or only a short period of time.  

    Our goal is that every student will achieve a year’s growth in a year’s time.   For those students performing below grade level expectations, our goal is to close their learning gap.   Student instruction is guided by the Colorado State Standards as well as formative and summative assessment practices.  

    Abrams Elementary is a Title 1 school serving students on the Fort Carson Army Post.  We serve kindergarten through 5th grade students. Our staff is committed to fostering success of the whole child.
