Welcome to Gold Rush Elementary School

Welcome to Gold Rush Elementary School! Gold Rush is a unique learning environment where students are challenged to think deeply and explore new opportunities and ideas.  Students develop the confidence to create, reflect and think independently in a safe and loving community. Staff are committed to fostering each child’s academic, social and emotional growth.  This is accomplished through strong relationships and personalized educational programming. Students are celebrated for their individual strengths and interests and challenged to take risks and assume leadership roles.  Teachers and administrators provide students with the nurturing guidance that allows them to develop a passion for learning, an inquisitive mind and a compassionate heart. Gold Rush is most importantly a family that challenges and supports one another in the journey of lifelong learning.
