Welcome to Poplar Grove School. We are a pre-kindergarten through fourth-grade school that strives to fulfill the district’s vision of “Excellence in Teaching and Learning for All” by differentiating and individualizing instruction to meet the wide variety of learning needs that exist in each classroom. Our school mission, “A Community of Creative and Passionate Learners Committed to Continuous Improvement,” captures the essence of what our teachers and students live out every day. Being connected to Poplar Grove Middle School by a shared hallway allows us the unique opportunity to see former students as they continue to grow, create, and fuel their passion for learning at PGMS.


We are confident that a strong collaboration between school and home will result in greater learning opportunities for our students, and we gladly invite communication and collaboration from you. The PGES faculty, staff, and administrative team are here to provide your child with the best education possible.
