Learning culture

Linton is a caring, welcoming and dynamic place! The Linton community is dedicated to the social, emotional, physical, and academic growth of children. Linton’s character education program and Positive Behavior Support system assists students in following the PRIDE Code: Perseverance, Respect, Integrity, Diversity, and Excellence.  Linton encourages school pride and positive behaviors, and attitudes. We have monthly PRIDE assemblies to come together as a school and celebrate our students.

Academic environment

Our curriculum is aligned with Colorado and PSD content standards. With a focus on literacy and math, our staff differentiates to ensure that all students are successful in a rigorous setting. Teachers integrate interactive technology into instruction on a daily basis. Our school also values educating the "whole child" and provides specials and extension, Gifted and Talented instruction, and a highly trained reading intervention team.
