GRADE LEVEL WEBSITES

Gilder Elementary School is located at 3705 Chandler Road in Bellevue. The school was named after Robert Gilder, a famed artist and archaeologist. In addition to regular classroom instruction, student support is also provided through special education programs, gifted and talented education, English as a Second Language, and guidance and counseling. We currently have three mobile labs which contain laptop computers for students to use technology as a learning tool in all subject areas.

An active parent-teacher association and Adopt-a-School business partners have supported Gilder students. These community groups share their expertise and partner with the staff to meet our students' academic, social, and emotional goals. Our Extend Day Tutoring Program and Community Learning Center continue our school's mission of providing academic and social opportunities which enable all our children to achieve at their highest potential.

Gilder School staff, parents, and community work together to fulfill its mission of providing every child instruction and opportunities for the development of those skills, habits, attitudes, and character traits that are essential in our culture.
