Why Choose CLPE?

Cache La Poudre Elementary (CLPE) is a small community school with over 100 years of history. Our school values positive relationships and inquiry based learning. We know our students well, support them to build deeper understandings and make connections across content areas and concepts. Our mission is to challenge all learners to inquire, know and care about the world. As an IB school, CLPE strives to have kind and thoughtful students who will grow into productive members of our society. As pirates, we believe we are anchored in inquiry and excellence.

Our Philosophy

As an International Baccalaureate World School, Cache La Poudre Elementary has adopted the view and philosophy of the IB. Our goal is to raise students who are internationally minded and have a desire to inquire and know about the world they live in. We strive to teach students to understand and live the PYP Learner Attributes (inquirer, principled, open-minded, balanced, communicators, caring, thinker, risk-taker, knowledgeable, and reflective) as well as show the Learner Attitudes (appreciation, commitments, confidence, cooperation, creativity, curiosity, empathy, enthusiasm, independence, integrity, respect, and tolerance). By teaching and leading with these traits, we believe that we can improve our world through the generation we are helping to grow.
