Why Choose Cedar Island Elementary
Located in Maple Grove, Cedar Island Elementary is home to more than 430 students in prekindergarten through fifth grade. We help students develop strong reading and math skills in a healthy, safe and caring environment. All students start their day with classmates and teachers in a morning meeting, a time designed to build relationships and provide a welcoming start to the academic day.
Cedar Island is a community-based school with a supportive Parent-Teacher Organization. This gives our scholars more opportunities to achieve their dreams, participate in enriching activities, grow as young leaders, and prepare for success in middle school.
Personalized support for scholars
At Cedar Island Elementary, we work with all scholars to provide appropriate academic support and rigor. From gifted education opportunities to services that support learners with special needs, our mission-driven staff helps each student succeed and lay the foundation for a lifetime of learning.
Cedar Island scholars also benefit from a Reader's and Writer's Workshop model that adjusts according to each child's individual literacy skills.

Strong community connections
Every year, Cedar Island students and staff contribute to the local community and beyond through service and fundraising projects. From senior living residences to organizations that support children and families, we're proud to give back and make our community a stronger, more caring place.
In 2017 and 2019, CCX News put their School Spotlight on our scholars as they learned to give back to community.
