Founded in 1956, Broadmoor Elementary is located in the shadows of Cheyenne Mountain, in the southwest part of Colorado Springs, Colorado. Cheyenne Mountain is the home to NORAD and the world-famous Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. The historic Broadmoor Hotel is also nearby.
The Broadmoor staff believes that a student's social / emotional well - being is just as important as academic needs. Broadmoor Elementary is committed to building a strong sense of inclusive community that involves the students, parents, and staff. It is our vision that our school be a learning community where high social and academic standards are expected and met. Students and staff are focused on our school slogan - "Every day I am Respectful, Responsible, Prepared, Proud and Kind".
Broadmoor Elementary is a Responsive Classroom school. Due to the wonderful parent and community support of our Fun Fit Bears fundraiser, several teachers have been trained in Responsive Classroom, and the remaining teachers will attend training in the summer of 2015. Responsive Classroom is not a program or curriculum, but rather an approach to teaching that ensures that our classrooms are joyful, safe learning communities where students feel comfortable taking risks. Our positive school culture is a reflection of these practices and a caring staff that values every child.
