About High Plains

 High Plains Elementary Mission Statement

High Plains Elementary School, an inclusive, culturally-diverse neighborhood school, will develop future-ready citizens of knowledge, character, and action by equipping, inspiring, and empowering all students to be confident, global-minded leaders within a safe, socially and emotionally healthy, personalized learning environment.


Our core purpose is to cause learning by building learning capacity, collaborating, making meaning, and breaking through to apply understanding. 

Building Learning Capacity – All members of High Plains Elementary develop learning capacity through goal setting, applying their "HOWLS" learner mindset, personal growth, and academic achievement.

Collaborating – All members of High Plains Elementary develop collaborative skills and values to enable them to actively engage others and contribute as effective members of any community. 

Making Meaning – That all members of High Plains Elementary problem solve, question, investigate, and make decisions using a learning process, thinking tools, and a range of learning strategies to deepen their understandings of concepts. 

Break Through – That all members of High Plains Elementary discover and build on strengths and interests to experience further fulfillment in learning.        


Our school mascot is Timber, a wolf.


Blue and white are our school colors.
