Edgewater Elementary is a wonderful  school in the Jefferson Area that serves approximately 300 students from preschool through sixth grade in Jefferson County. We are a diverse school community that is culturally responsive and embraces restorative practices. Approximately 50% of our students are English Language Learners, with most of them participating in our Dual Language program. Families are highly engaged and partake in the school's PTA, School Accountability Committee and Parent University.  Our volunteer program attacks families to volunteer in the classroom and organize school events. We are a proud school community that cares deeply about all students.
 
Dual Language Programs
We offer a 2-Way DL program in Kinder and 1st grade, and a One-Way DL program 2nd-6th grades. A One-Way program serves families whose native or dominant language is Spanish only. A Two-Way program includes families who are native or dominant English speakers in addition to native Spanish speakers. As we phase out our One-Way into a 2-Way, our goal is to have full implementation  Preschool-6th grade by 2025.

Beginning in 2021-2022, we will only offer a full day 2-Way Dual Language Program in Pre-school. Students will be immersed in Spanish 90% of the school day with 10% of the day in English for all. This will prepare students to continue in our 2-Way Dual Language Program through 6th grade. The goal of the 2-Way Dual Language Program in Pre-school is to continue to develop the Spanish language for our native Spanish speakers and to create a Spanish immersion experience for our native English speakers. Space will be limited to 32 students.

PBL (Project-Based Learning)
PBL is a teaching method in which students gain knowledge and skills by working for an extended period of time to investigate and respond to an authentic, engaging, and complex question, problem, or challenge. Edgewater started implementing PBLs a few years ago, and received extensive training from PBL experts.  All students K-6th participate in this highly engaging method of learning.
