Michael Clow, Principal
Bill Parker, IB Coordinator
Northeast Elementary School was designated an International Baccalaureate (IB) Candidate School on April 19, 2012. This honor and achievement represents a culmination of years of hard work by the Northeast administration, faculty, staff and students. Our Primary Years Programme (PYP) for students ages 3 to 12, focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside.

At Northeast, we believe that knowledge is “actively built, not passively learned”. We will soon begin to offer an inquiry-based curriculum that empowers students as they develop as knowledgeable, respectful, compassionate, and responsible world citizens and reflective life-long learners.
Our IB curriculum will be collaboratively crafted by teams of our own teachers. These lessons will be taught and thoughtfully revised to reflect best practices in education and to best meet the needs of our students. Curriculum, lessons, and learning activities are based on national and Colorado State Standards.
