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 participate in our Dual Language programs. Families are highly engaged and partake in the school's PTA, School Accountability Committee and Parent University.  Our volunteer program attracts  families and community members to volunteer in the classroom and organize school events. We are a proud school community that cares deeply about all students.  

For 2021-2022 school year, Edgewater will offer a Two-Way Dual Language (DL) program in Kinder- 2nd grades, and a One-Way DL program 3rd-6th grades. Both programs share the same goals for students to attain by the end of 6th grade:

  • High academic achievement in Spanish and English
  • Bilingual and biliterate in both Spanish and English
  • Socio-cultural competence

One-way Dual Language: 3rd - 6th grades

A One-Way program serves families whose native or dominant language is Spanish. Our 3rd- 6th grade one-way students receive 50% of their instruction in English and 50% in Spanish.

Two-way Dual Language: Kindergarten-2nd grades

A Two-Way program includes families who are native or dominant Spanish speakers and native or dominant English speakers. Students in our Two-Way program receive 50% of their instruction in Spanish and 50% in English from kindergarten through sixth grade. Each year, we add another grade level to our Two-Way program as our students transition to the next grade. Our goal is to have full implementation of our Two-Way program from Preschool-6th grade by 2025.

Two-Way Dual Language Preschool 

 

Beginning in 2021-2022, Edgewater’s preschool will only offer a full day Two-Way Dual Language Program. 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 Two-Way Dual Language Program through 6th grade. The goal of the Two-Way Dual Language Program in Preschool 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 and families must enroll their students through Enroll Jeffco.
