Welcome to Cape Elementary

A tradition of excellence since 1964!

Cape Elementary School, located in the heart of Cape Coral, was the first school built on the Cape and continues to lead in a tradition of excellence.  The school’s theme, Caring About People Everywhere, pervades all its activities.  The essence of Cape can be captured in phrases like, “small community atmosphere,” “caring people,” and “warm, friendly environment.”  All programs are aimed at educating and nurturing the whole child, while continuing to focus on high achievement and rigorous academic standards.

Our Mission:  To provide a safe and supportive learning community where every student experiences success.
