About Wildfire Elementary School (WFES)

We are a group of educators who care for any and all students who come through our doors. We currently educate nearly 700 students in Kindergarten-6th Grade and house two Community Education preschool classes.

WFES has an implementation of 1-to-1 student technology. Every 1st-6th-grade student is supplied with either an iPad or Chromebook to enhance learning, engagement, and creativity opportunities throughout the day. Teachers at Wildfire Elementary continually implement the latest online educational resources to help enhance student understanding and provide them with enriched learning opportunities.

At Wildfire Elementary School, we work collaboratively to engage students in individualized, rigorous, and authentic learning experiences. We do this by utilizing a variety of print, digital, and off-site resources to provide students with opportunities to increase their understanding and academic abilities. Our teachers and staff strive to develop lasting relationships that support and foster social, emotional, and academic needs to ensure individual student success. We believe that WFES is a place that all students, regardless of background and prior learning, will thrive and become better students and people.

The mission of Wildfire Elementary School is to lead students to high achievement and individual excellence in a collaborative learning environment.
