Welcome to Edgewater Elementary

Edgewater Elementary School is a wonderful Title I school in the Jefferson Area that serves more than 400 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 participate in the One-Way Dual Language, while the others are instructed in English. We offer 1-to-1 iPads K-3rd, and Chromebooks 4th-6th. These devices provide opportunities for our students to create, problem-solve, collaborate, and communicate in all content areas.

Two–Way Dual Language Program


Next year, Edgewater will change its Dual Language approach from a One-Way to a Two-Way program starting in Kindergarten. Currently, our program serves families whose native or dominant language is Spanish. A Two-Way program includes families who are native or dominant English speakers in addition to native Spanish speakers. We will start in kindergarten with the goal of having a full K-6 program in 2025.


Our PBL Journey


This school year, 2018-2019, our school is starting a new approach to learning through Problem-Based Learning (PBL). Problem-Based Learning  is a student centered approach in which students learn about a subject through the experience of solving an open-ended problem. The PBL process does not focus on problem solving with a defined solution, but it allows for the development of other desirable skills and attributes. This includes content knowledge, enhanced group collaboration and communication. All grade levels will implement at least one PBL tied to Jeffco’s curriculum this school year. We will add a second or more PBLs every school year with the goal of becoming a full PBL school.

· Free full day kindergarten

· Half-Day preschool

· Before and after school care

· After school clubs
