About Dos Rios Elementary

    Dos Rios Elementary
    Dos Rios Elementary School is a fully authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School* offering the Primary Years Programme. International Baccalaureate schools share a common philosophy—a commitment to high quality, challenging, international education that Dos Rios Elementary School believes is important for our students.
    *Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its four academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), the Diploma Programme or the Career-related Programme (CP). For further information about the IB and its programmes, visit http://www.ibo.org
    Dos Rios is Spanish for Two Rivers, and the school was named in recognition of the South Platte and the Cache La Poudre rivers which border Greeley and Evans.
    The school was constructed in 1988 and is home to the Buffaloes. We have two buffalo mascots: Lightning and Thunder!

    Our Mission: The Dos Rios staff, parents, and community are committed to empowering and encouraging students to become successful life-long learners and leaders in an ever-changing world. We will work together to create challenging and developmentally appropriate learning experiences that emphasize intellectual rigor and high academic standards. Personal integrity and democratic values will be fostered in our students to prepare them to become balanced, responsible, reflective and globally conscious citizens.
