Welcome to Edwards Elementary School
In order to achieve our vision to “prepare, inspire, and support all students to be learners for life,” we emphasize teaching students to act in harmony with the principles of good character, guiding them to be positive and intrinsically motivated learners.
Our students come from diverse backgrounds that enrich our learning environment. We work to make everyone feel included and appreciated and to encourage parents and guardians to be involved in their child’s learning.
In keeping with its commitment to provide an environment for 21st Century learning, our new building opened in 2014 to replace the original Edwards building, built in 1951 and named after David Edwards, a long-time member of the Ames Board of Education.
The new building is designed so our students can be even more actively engaged with multiple instruction strategies and technology tools, while staff proactively responds to their needs.
