  • Julien POD

    1924 E. Canal Drive

    If not accepted into the Julien POD Program, students must register at their designated home school attendance area.

    The Pod at Julien Elementary School is a choice program for students in kindergarten through third grade which is based on three major ideas: the concept of an “extended family,” the worth of the individual child, and a specially-designed open setting. Each Pod teacher has a home group comprised of students from all four grade levels.  These students remain with the same home group teacher for the four years they are in the program. Grade-level standards are taught with the grade-level teachers and each child’s intellectual, emotional, and social learning is nurtured in a caring and supportive environment.
