Additional Information

Dennison Elementary School was established in 1974 to provide an alternative, choice education environment for students within Jefferson County where fundamental learning skills, academic rigor, and high expectations prepare students to be successful in today's society. Dennison Elementary curriculum aligns with Colorado State Standards and Jefferson County School district standards. Adjustments to the school's curriculum must be approved by the school board. Dennison students are expected to complete all district and state required assessments. Textbooks and other resources that support the state and district standards include Open Court Reading Program (2002) which emphasizes phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary development, reading fluency, and comprehension. Dennison has a school-wide systematic writing program in grades K-6. Textbooks published by Harcourt Brace and Scott Foresman-Addison Wesley are used to teach Language Arts, Science, and Math. Varied resources are used for instruction in Social Studies and Geography. All students in grades 1-6 are offered physical education, art, music, library and computer instruction on a regular basis.
