Welcome to the home of Buddy the Bulldog and a world of green and gold!

From 20th century construction, to 21st century instruction, teachers and staff at Butterfield School work to open the minds of about 435  young learners. Each day invites students to create, design, question and explore using the tools of creative problem solving, working collaboratively on teams, communicating as they listen, speak and write, making connections to self, text and the world around them and utilizing technology in the form of comprehensive digital literacy.

Professional development practices, where teachers use collaborative time to instruct and support colleagues, to the creative development of a host of student activity clubs and extra curricular offerings, educators at Butterfield School find innovative, diverse ways to share information while engaging both children and adults.

It is these day to day experiences and opportunities that await all students and staff, as well as the profound commitment to teaching and learning, that makes District 70 and Butterfield School an extraordinary place to work, study, learn and grow. 

Go Bulldogs!
