What Does it Mean to Be

A Magnet & Gifted World Language School?

As a Magnet School, we offer specialized programming in world language that attracts students from all over the city. We are fortunate to offer our students three days a week in Spanish from Pre-K (3 and 4 years old) through 8th grade. The "EL Regional Gifted Center" distinction recognizes our dedication to nurturing the talents and abilities of every student, fostering their growth and development in Spanish and Polish. We also have a neighborhood program. This allows students who live within our attendance limit to attend Greeley.

“The gifted bilingual program was a major draw for us, and it's been everything we hoped for. The small school atmosphere is another huge plus—it feels like home.”
-Christina, Proud Greeley Parent & Grandparent

Proudly Diverse

"What I truly appreciate about Greeley is its diversity. Having been a student here myself, I vividly recall appreciating the diverse community. These experiences significantly contributed to my preparation for high school and college, fostering a deeper understanding of cultural diversity and opening doors to broader opportunities. Embracing different cultures has been instrumental in shaping my perspective and readiness for life beyond Greeley."
