Why Steele?

Steele Elementary is located in the heart of Washington Park, a tree-lined neighborhood South-East of the Denver financial district by a little over two miles. It is one of the top performing elementary schools in Denver. Steele values cultural diversity and provides students with a wide range of activities that develop the whole child and foster a love of learning.

The teachers and staff are highly engaged in the students’ academic and social development. At Steele, we focus on educating the whole child. Each class takes part in a daily morning meeting where students explore topics related to equity, diversity, identity, and social/emotional well being. We also provide enriching experiences through our arts programming. All students participate in weekly art, music, and drama classes. Steele delivers a comprehensive academic experience that nurtures inquisitive, collaborative learners who are poised to succeed in both school and life. 

The parent community is also actively involved in supporting the school as needed with fundraising events, communications, and effectively partnering with the teachers and school administration to provide a warm, nurturing and encouraging environment for academic growth and enrichment.

Students learn in a collaborative and supportive environment where they can take risks and learn from their mistakes. They engage in tasks that build agency, confidence, creativity and problem solving skills. Steele educational programming intrinsically and uniquely embraces tenants of 21st century learning, building the foundation for our students’ bright, successful future.
