Welcome to the Colfax Elementary School District website. As you continue through the various links on this site, I hope you can gain an appreciation for our small school community. Colfax Elementary School serves students from the city of Colfax and about 125 square miles of unincorporated residential area.
The first public elementary school in the area was established in the Illinoistown area of Colfax in 1853. In the summer of 1993 a new facility was completed in Colfax, located at 24825 Ben Taylor Road. Colfax Elementary School District offers a unique educational experience focused on students achieving their maximum potential educationally, socially, and mentally. Standards-based education is at the forefront of our education, including preparing students to succeed academically when continuing on to high school. There is a strong focus on basic skills, especially math and literature. Writing is considered a learning tool and is taught across all curriculum areas.
