Jeffco Public Schools, Colorado's largest K-12 school district, with 85,000 students and approximately 14,000 employees, has provided educational excellence for more than 60 years. Nearly 10 percent of all Colorado K-12 students attend a Jeffco school and our employees benefit from partnerships with experienced, dynamic school leaders throughout our district. Our Jeffco Generations vision document and strategic plan map out with focus and clarity what we expect our schools to accomplish with our graduates. Come join us!


Allendale has been serving the Arvada West community for 55 years. We're a Title 1 school serving a diverse population of families and our small size (under 180 students) allows us to get to know our students and families on a personal level; many families choice-in to our school citing our commitment to their kids for why they stay. We provide weekly social emotional learning lessons as we know students must learn to problem solve a variety of situations so they can focus on their academics. We're proud that we offer 1 to 1 iPads or Chrome Books to our students as we embrace using a blended learning model at all grades. We go out of our way to recognize students who display good behavior and effort as we focus on positive behaviors in our school.


As a Title 1 school, our teachers must be committed to teaching more than just academics to our students. We have time built-in for social emotional learning and we expect follow through from teachers throughout the week. As a small school, some teachers do not have a grade-level teammate meaning they must be comfortable planning instruction on their own and with our instructional coach. Our PLC model is very tight, we expect our teachers to plan daily reading and math interventions, as well as extensions for students. Incorporating technology into learning is expected at all grades (blended learning).
