High School | Grades 9-12

Discover Your Goals & Reach Your Potential

Our high school program is designed to address the educational needs of each student’s learning profile to help them reach their potential. In high school, we offer several levels within each subject to allow students to develop their learning strengths while remediating their areas of need. Students are also given structure and support through tools including memorization strategies, organization, note-taking, and study skills while maintaining high accountability. All lesson plans are designed to address multiple learning styles and utilize technology, art, and hands-on projects with engaged learning. All students also participate in community service on a regular basis. 
In addition to our curriculum, we also offer and encourage students to take Spanish as a year-long elective during all four years of high school. We strongly encourage all 9th-graders to take Spanish I, as this provides students the opportunity to further coursework in Spanish and meets the minimum requirement set by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education. 

High school requires a renewed focus on time and stress management and students are encouraged to find outlets in Arts and Physical Education to balance and nurture themselves. Please view our High School Course Maps listed below for a more detailed view of how students progress through academic courses.
