Woodmen Hills Elementary School, located in Falcon Zone at 8308 Del Rio Road in Peyton, is in its 13th year of existence with an enrollment of more than 700 students, pre-school through fifth grade. The staff and community are proud of the fact that this large school has an overwhelming "small school" sense and feel about it. The teachers and students embrace new technology, engaging all learners with a Promethean Board or SMARTboard in every classroom.[1]

Curricula[edit]

Woodmen Hills Elementary School has adopted Layers of Success, a new writing method, which is a building-wide emphasis on instructional strategies focused on generating strong ideas, vocabulary and challenging every child. Layers of Success is highly engaging and is embedded across all content areas. It's a positive behavior support school, which teaches school-wide behavioral skills directly. Similar to academic skills, these social behaviors are taught, reviewed and re-taught as necessary. This maximizes academic engagement and student success, while providing instructional support.

Extracurricular[edit]

Woodmen Hills Elementary School offers convenient before and after school care provided by Champions. This includes quiet homework areas, fitness and a character-building curriculum. The school also offer a variety of enrichment classes including: Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts, land sharks running club, karate, basketball, cup stacking, rocket-building, arts and crafts, cooking, math and science enrichment, instrumental music and choir.

Community[edit]

The students benefit from an active Parent-Teacher Association that goes the extra mile to make the school one of the best in the Pikes Peak region. They also have a tremendous amount of supportive parent volunteers, averaging more than 10 volunteers per day.
