Broadmoor Elementary is a community of scholars and lifelong learners in Hobbs, New Mexico. Students and teachers take ownership of learning in order to cultivate and sustain a culture of commitment to growth. Both Broadmoor teachers and students embrace failure as a necessary step towards making growth.

Systematic strategies facilitate and support the teaching learning cycle at Broadmoor. No Opt Out and Cold Call are a few strategies that can be observed in any classroom regardless of age based on the text Teach Like a Champion. Researched based practices paired with data driven instruction are tools used to empower both teachers and students as they set and reach goals. Brain Based Learning techniques enhance learning for all students and aids in setting them up for success in all content areas.

Students strive to become role models of commitment to growth through participating in opportunities such as Student Council and learning ways to promote character in themselves and others. High standards are held for all students. Students are encouraged to meet needs within the school community if within their capacity. Broadmoor families venture out among the community outside our walls in order to lend a helping hand.

Broadmoor staff, in their commitment to growth, serve and act as vital resources for one another. With the average years of experience among staff being roughly 12 years, there is no disconnect, but a high level of collaboration among all grade level teachers.
