To provide a safe environment and challenging curriculum which will enable all students to become independent life-long learners and responsible citizens. John Bidwell’s programs include:

  • Rigorous and developmentally appropriate curriculum
  • GATE Cluster classes for 2nd through 6th grade

John Bidwell Elementary has high expectations for students. Teachers work as a team to encourage students to be independent learners and use a variety of small group methods to develop problem-solving skills, cooperation, and higher-level thinking skills. The staff works closely with parents and other community members to be responsive to the needs of students and the community.
