• Shadow Hills Elementary School strives for excellence; values individuality; fosters a passion for learning; promotes the balanced development of mind, body and character; encourages service; and instills a respect for others. We promote higher-order thinking skills with an interdisciplinary approach by promoting bilingualism, biliteracy, problem-based learning, and connect to the real world that includes the use of technology and Science.  We have a primary and intermediate science lab.  In addition, we offer a Spanish-immersion program that promotes high academic achievement while supporting second-language development and cross-cultural understanding for all students enrolled. We have fully implemented the program in first through fifth grade. Academic subjects are taught to the students in English and Spanish using the 50/50 model. The program provides students with a rigorous learning experience in Spanish and English that is both culturally and linguistically responsive. Our Spanish-immersion students will become bilingual, biliterate and culturally competent learners who demonstrate high academic achievement in all areas. The students demonstrate global competencies to engage effectively with the wider world and cultures.

    If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact our school office at 619-445-2977 or email Teri Lyle- tlyle@alpineschools.net.
