At Templeton Elementary, we pride ourselves on meeting the unique needs of all our students and offer a variety of programming to meet every student’s needs, including single grade and multi-age classrooms.  Our approach to learning is inclusionary, meeting the needs of English language learners, students receiving special education services, and students receiving high ability services within the general education classroom. Students at Templeton have the opportunity to be lifelong learners and understand how we live in a global society.
