Hulstrom K-8 specializes in gifted and talented education focused on the whole child. Our philosophy is rooted in providing students with rigorous curriculum and personalized instruction focused on academics, enrichment, and social emotional learning. As a result of the high expectations and quest for excellence, Hulstrom K-8 is consistently named one of the top performing schools in the state of Colorado.
We are so excited for Hulstrom K-8’s fifth annual iSTEM Fair on December 1, 2023! iSTEM is an acronym for Invention, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Using any of these domains, students will solve a problem through research, developing a hypothesis / possible solutions, creating a prototype, recording observations and data, and presenting their conclusions. Students will present their thinking with a visual display and through a brief oral presentation to judges. For more information about the iSTEM Fair and for a link to the application, take a look at the iSTEM Fair Overview. Applications are due by November 13, 2023.
Is your child not formally identified as gifted and talented? Or perhaps your child is identified as talent pool? Do you think your child might be gifted and talented? Gifted/Talented (G/T) testing at Hulstrom is currently scheduled for the week of January 22-26, 2024. If you have a student you would like to nominate for G/T identification (and they have not already been identified as gifted), complete this online form no later than December 13, 2023. If you’d like more information on the identification process, you can go to the district website with this link.

I loved Hulstrom from the very moment we met the first teacher during back to school night. It was immediately apparent that the curriculum was going to challenge my kids and push them to meet their greatest potential. Just as importantly however, the teachers conveyed the most genuine love and caring for their students. In fact one of them actually got teary as she spoke about the teaching profession and what her students had meant to her over the years. We looked no further… I knew Hulstrom was the community for us!
