Welcome to Fountain-Fort Carson School District Eight, Colorado’s premiere school district serving the communities of Fountain and Fort Carson! Whether you will be living on our local military post or moving to a neighborhood nearby, we are so happy you are considering making District Eight your home.
In case you are wondering...
Construction of the
New Preschool has Begun!
The Fountain-Fort Carson School Board approved the contract to build a preschool on Jimmy Camp Road adjacent to the Administration Building. The school will house all of the District Eight preschool programs in Fountain. A similar project was constructed several years ago on Fort Carson.
The town preschool programs are being consolidated into one facility to better meet the needs of our preschool students. This will also free up space in our elementary schools and accommodate for growth until another elementary school is needed. The new preschool will have twelve classrooms and is master planned for eight additional classrooms.
The District is growing and representatives from the District continue to work closely with the City of Fountain, Fort Carson and developers to prepare for growth. This will be very challenging over the next five to ten years because the needs will far exceed the available resources. Elementary school boundary changes may also be necessary in the near future. The preschool is scheduled to open in August 2015.
