A Few Facts about Knapp…

Knapp Elementary is located in the center of a bilingual community in the Westwood area of west Denver, which services 650 students from Early Childhood Education through Grade Five. Approximately 75% of our students are English Language Learners; therefore, our expertise is providing English Language Development. We embrace the Mexican-American culture by celebrating and respecting traditions of our community. At Knapp, we believe that education is the development of the whole child. Reading, writing, math and science are an integral part of our day along with Music, PE, Art and Technology. We offer full day Early Childhood Education (ECE) as well as full day Kindergarten. We are thrilled to be the only school west of the Mississippi River to participate in the Horizons Enrichment Program at the Colorado Academy. In addition, we were selected to receive the Book Trust program. Our students receive free books of their choice each month through the Scholastic Book Club in Kindergarten, First Grade, and Second Grade.
