Laurel History

Founded in 1906, Laurel is the oldest, continuously operating elementary school in Fort Collins. Our school, located in Old Town, has one of the most diverse student populations in the Poudre School District (PSD). Laurel offers PSD’s standards-driven curriculum, in an arts-infused environment that is rare for public schools anywhere in the country.

The current Laurel building opened in 1993 and retains the name of the original school building on Laurel Street. At Laurel we embrace diversity with a wide range of economic levels, cultures, interests, and abilities!
