We Innovate Early
Our unique K-5 model encourages innovation from an early age, laying the foundation for a lifetime of discovery.
We focus on providing a rigorous and relevant core education that taps into the innate curiosity of each student while integrating essential STEM skills and concepts within literacy, mathematics, social studies and science.
Our classrooms come alive with relevant, problem-based learning where 21st Century Skills are embedded through the use of technology, critical thinking, and collaboration to engage the heads, hearts and hands of students in authentic and real world issues. All elementary students will participate in specials classes that include art, music, physical education, and world language.
Character development is key as we nurture and develop responsible and respectful elementary students.
All curricular decisions begin with the alignment to the Colorado Academic Standards (CDE, 2010). Core Knowledge (Core Knowledge Foundation, 2010) topics are incorporated and embedded throughout each unit of instruction. Twenty-first century skills (P21, 2007) and technology are infused throughout each unit as well.
We Foster Fearless Innovation
Our Middle School is a haven for continual innovation, creative exploration and rigorous discovery.
In Middle School we focus on a providing an engaging and empowering education that incorporates essential middle school level skills and character development, with rigorous real world education. All of this is then rooted in STEM-based problem solving and fueled by constant exploration, inquiry and discovery.
Our students are thinkers, doers, change makers and innovators. They develop the skills of critical thinking, collaboration, safe failure and applied innovation through an exciting and challenging integrated STEM curriculum.
At the heart of our innovative model is a student-centered and teacher guided approach to learning where students become curious, creative and active drivers and problem solvers to real world challenges.
Our teachers are catalysts, champions, guides and experts in igniting a love of learning while teaching appropriate use of technology, collaboration, teamwork and organization to achieve goals.
We work tirelessly to provide an exciting and engaging education that unlocks the unlimited potential of every student while fostering the character and confidence needed to succeed in an exponentially changing world.
Our High School is where innovation and rigorous achievement come to life.
Our strong, innovative and problem-based curriculum is futuristic, entrepreneurial and fun. Our students are challenged to think outside-the-box and maximize their potential in every academic area. They are challenged to develop the essential soft skills necessary to be productive and valued members of the 21st Century workforce. We offer a variety of technology and computer science classes focused on programming in a variety of languages, creative applications like 3D animation/modeling and designing, and building games.
Additionally our students are able to earn industry level IT certificates by taking classes in A+, Net+, and Security+. In our engineering Labs, students fine-tune their problem-solving and creative skills as they take classes in manufacturing, robotics, Computer Aided Design (CAD), digital electronics, and transportation technologies.
The infusion of technology goes beyond the labs and is integral in the liberal arts classrooms as a tool to help students use information which is abundantly available to create and build new knowledge. Teachers facilitate students through significant problem based learning (PBL) experiences where they are not simply acquiring new information, rather students work collaboratively to solve real-world problems in real-world contexts.
The foundation of the engaged real-world learning at the high school level, is our focus on ensuring all students fully master the basic skills in reading, writing, communication, math and critical thinking. We aim to support and challenge students and provide the firm foundation necessary to be successful with whatever pathway they choose to take after high school.
Beyond the basics, our students take risks. We challenge them to create, learn and do things never done before. We embrace safe failure as a way to push forward. We are an exponential learning environment that engages students at all levels. We teach career navigation skills, business ethics with character education, personal responsibility, teamwork and problem solving with creativity.
