PALMER IS A TOP PERFORMER! CHECK IT OUT!
(Palmer is only 1 of 15 Denver schools to receive this award above!)
NOTE FROM THE PRINCIPAL: Welcome to Palmer Elementary School located in the heart of Denver. Palmer is a small school with a lot of personality. Our school offers ECE through 5th grade classes including Advanced Kindergarten. The student body is very diverse with 10-12 different native language speakers attending each school year. We attempt (and have been very successful) in keeping our classes small so that the upmost attention can be given to each individual child. They are each so important to us and we want to ensure that each has an excellent education.
Our staff consists of a blend of seasoned teachers with volumes of experience and knowledge to beginning teachers that bring new ideas that reinforce the education presented to our students. We have a mixture of male and female classroom teachers that allows Palmer different views and ways of teaching.
Our art program is excellent entwining music within its lessons. The various forms of art are experienced by our students as they develop the most beautiful art that decorates our hallways. Our physical education/dance class is involved in so many health building programs and games along with dance introduction and experiences. All children, including ECE, are involved in one or the other weekly. Palmer also offers a 30 computer lab and a very up-to-date library for use by our students.
Our upper grades platoon so that teachers can offer students their expertise in subject areas, while our primary grades focus on building a strong foundation for our students.
Palmer is a green school and has shown growth for the past four years on state assessments (CSAP now called TCAP). This indicates that Palmer is consistently moving its students at all levels.
Tours are given on a scheduled basis and we encourage you to come in and experience the “best kept secret” in Denver – the little school with the BIG heart!
