Cardinal Elementary

Cardinal Elementary opened in 1993 as a two-section, K-4 building serving approximately 230 students. In the last 18 years, Cardinal has grown to a three-section elementary school serving 400 students in grades K – 5. Approximately 70% are minority, 37% are ESL and 62% receive free or reduced lunch. The District’s severe & profound and elementary PDD programs are also located in this facility. 37 certified and 26 classified staff members provide quality educational experiences for all students.

At Cardinal Elementary, in honor of our wonderful country, our 5th grade students lead the Pledge of Allegiance each morning during the morning announcements at approximately 8:00 a.m.
