Where We Work

The Denver metro area is a vibrant and diverse community with great restaurants, outstanding culture, and access to all of the beauty and outdoor activities of Colorado. Our schools currently span four locations, and campuses will continue to grow each year to serve Pre-K through 5th grade.

Who We Seek

First and foremost, we are looking for staff members that deeply believe that
child deserves an outstanding education, and that with the right supports,
child can realize his or her full potential. Our staff members have incredible growth mindsets - we don't see problems, we see possibilities, and each and every one of us has a deep desire to continue to grow and learn. We also bring a track record of success and achievement from our previous classroom experiences or other educational and professional pursuits.

Our staff believes that when you love someone, you hold them to high expectations - and we apply this to our own work, the work of our colleagues, and the work of our scholars. We take our work seriously, but ourselves less so - we laugh and joke and bring joy to work every day. And finally, we value a diversity of perspectives and experiences, recognize the humanity of those around us, and seek to build an inclusive environment that models what we wish to see in the world.

Overall, we're good people with big hearts, who care a whole lot about our people - both big and small - and are constantly improving our practice to be the staff our scholars truly deserve.
