Colorado Academy is a Pre-K through 12 independent school in southwest Denver serving more than 920 students from across the metropolitan Denver area emphasizing college preparatory and 21st century skills. The school has become a national leader in adopting design thinking models and integrating the teaching of 21st century skills at all grade levels.
Denver Public Schools
Denver Public Schools is committed to making Denver a national leader in student achievement, high school graduation, college and career preparation, and college matriculation. DPS has a clear vision – become the best urban school district in the nation. Under this vision, the district has benefited from significant gains in student achievement, enrollment, the implementation of LEAP — a multiple measure teacher evaluation and support system that is designed to provide teachers with more meaningful feedback and targeted support so they can reflect on their instructional practice and continue to grow professionally and improve. This work is guided by The Denver Plan, a living document that outlines the district’s vision of achievement.
Association of Colorado Independent Schools
