Our beautiful newly-expanded school, located in the foothills west of Denver, serves Preschool through 5th grade students. We have a strong commitment by every staff member to support student learning through authentic learning, differentiated instruction and involving parents as partners. We utilize data to drive our instruction and meet the needs of each learner.
