Goldfield Elementary School currently consists of 3 classrooms K-1, Grades 2-5 and Grades 6 to 8. High school students commute to nearby Tonopah to attend school. The campus is one block away from NV Highway 95, the north-south artery between Reno and Las Vegas. The campus shares space with the administration and support facilities.
Goldfield students are fortunate to have a full gym/multi-purpose building as well as a basketball court, fitness center, and library. In 2011, ARRA funds provided for a powerful solar array. An abundance of available technology, including desktop computers and iPads, contributes to student learning.
The instructional staff throughout the District receive
on-going professional development to ensure that the needs of a diverse student population are met. The staff is working hard to implement the new Common Core State Standards, which promise to provide rigor in instruction in all content areas. For the past several years the entire staff has had the opportunity to attend the National Conference on Differentiated Instruction.
Using strategies learned in professional development, the Goldfield staff have designed a number of on-going projects that help to deliver the new curriculum in real-life situations. One project is the radio broadcasting program in the middle school classroom. Working with a producer from the local radio station, students research, write, edit and revise, and then tape a program which is broadcast each week. For more information on this program, click on the "Radio Broadcasting" icon.
Positive character development and civic responsibility are traits that we emphasize on our campus. They have been embedded in core content areas, including research, writing, and science, and have resulted in the creation and maintenance of a Memory Garden.

In addition to long-term projects, students and staff in Goldfield Elementary work together on many shorter, on-going projects. Once each month our Counselor selects a character trait as the topic of the month. Students then research, write, and conduct activities focusing on that trait.
