 About Our School

Douglass Elementary School serves around 450 students from the communities of east Boulder, Lafayette, Louisville and Erie in preschool through fifth grade. We take pride in our many years of high academic achievement and student growth, which has been acknowledged at the state and national level with honors such as the John Irwin and Governor's Distinguished Improvement Awards from the Colorado Department of Education, and the National Blue Ribbon School Award from the U.S. Department of Education.

While those honors for our academics are significant, Douglass Elementary knows that we are responsible for teaching to the whole child, and the development of the character of our children is equally important. We have committed to implementing The Leader in Me, which teaches students The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and how to use those insights to foster student leadership, responsibility, and accountability. Students will graduate from Douglass well-prepared for the rigors and challenges of middle school life, no matter what school they choose to attend in sixth grade.​ For 2013 and beyond, Douglass Elementary will integrate the leadership model presented in Dr. Stephen R. Covey's book, The Leader in Me.

Our mission is to develop students who have the skills and self-confidence to succeed as leaders in the 21st century and to leverage academic achievement by raising levels of leadership, accountability and engagement among students.
