Burlington Elementary students, teachers, staff, and families live our motto of Blazing Trails and Inspiring Excellence. Recognized by the Colorado Department in both 2014 and 2017 as one of five “high achieving” elementary schools in Colorado, Burlington teachers and staff focus on supporting both the academic and social emotional growth of our students. Through robust supports in a small school environment, Burlington teachers and staff work to recognize students’ individual needs, yet help them connect with their world outside of school. Additionally, Burlington provides many opportunities to enhance the interests and talents of students. From robotics to musical theater to 100 Mile Club, students participate and excel in before- and after-school activities.
Burlington Elementary also has a emphasis on connecting students to the natural world. Through our Geodesic outdoor classroom that was opened in 2020, students engaging with hands-on learning in ecosystems and sustainability.
