New and prospective students can learn more about Elizabeth schools during an open house Feb. 19.

Those considering an Elizabeth school can meet with staff, take student-led tours, visit classrooms and see the school's culture in action from 8:30-9:30 a.m. and 10-11 a.m.

The district has six schools: Running Creek and Singing Hills elementary schools, Elizabeth Middle School, Frontier High School, Elizabeth High School and Legacy Academy.

Elizabeth Middle School ranked 17 out of 270 middle schools in Colorado for its academic offerings and innovative outdoor field trips, according to a news release.

Frontier High School is an alternative education campus that provides a non-traditional setting for students wanting a different type of high school.

Elizabeth High School offers numerous Advanced Placement classes and college course offerings, and continues to have a four-year graduation rate at 90.1% (exceeding the 80.7% state average).

Legacy Academy is a K-8 charter school operated by a group of parents, teachers, and community members under their own governance.

With small class sizes (average K-12 class is 23 students), Elizabeth schools offers student leadership opportunities in all grades, performing arts programs at both the middle and high school level, STEM and robotics curricula, and integrated middle school sports leading to 18 high school varsity teams, the news release said.

Families are interested in touring Elizabeth Schools but not able to attend the upcoming open houses can schedule a tour by visiting http://bit.ly/ESopenhouse.
