Juniper Elementary School
Built in 1965, Juniper was once called Pilot Butte Elementary. We are located on the west side of Pilot Butte and have a creative campus of five separate buildings at different levels and wonderful activity areas. A true neighborhood school, many of our students walk or ride bikes to school.
Juniper's vision is for our students to exit with grade-level mastery in reading, writing, and math. We do this through providing a viable and consistent curriculum in each content area that is accessible to all students. Science, social studies, art, and other enrichment areas are taught through direct lessons and/or integrated units. As a technology magnet school, we teach Code.org, a computer science curriculum, KG through 5th grade. Students learn programming, coding, and develop critical thinking skills that will prepare them for the future. The goal is to teach students not only what is happening on the screen but what is happening behind the screen. All Juniper students have PE, music, and library time each week.
The Juniper staff is here to serve you. We are dedicated to developing a love of learning in all of our children. Students are most successful when school personnel work closely with parents to meet the unique needs of each individual student. You are invited and encouraged to participate in, and get involved with, your child's education in any way possible. We look forward to working with you to ensure your child's success. If you have any questions about anything, please don't hesitate to call or stop by the office for a visit. Our door is always open.
