Principal's Message

Dear Florida Mesa families,

Florida Mesa continues to thrive as a school focused on learning for all. We continue to welcome administrators and teachers from across the district and state to learn alongside our staff and students. These visits reaffirm that our students learn at high levels, our staff works tirelessly to provide intentional learning opportunities, and our families provide support for learning. As we visit classrooms, students are grappling with rigorous learning content, are engaged in learning that intrigues them, and work collaboratively to solve problems.

Early Access for Kindergarten

Durango School District 9-R has the opportunity to accelerate highly advanced gifted children under age 5 for kindergarten and/or under age 6 for first grade. This Early Access is for those eligible students if their birthdays fall after October 1st. It is intended to support students who are evaluated to be exceptional in aptitude/cognitive reasoning, academics, school readiness and motivation. Early Access is not an acceleration pattern recommended for the majority of age 4 or age 5 gifted children who will benefit from preschool or kindergarten programming that responds to the strength area. The purpose is to identify and serve the few highly advanced gifted children who require comprehensive academic acceleration. The decision is based on a thorough set of research based procedures to determine if a child is eligible.
