 About Our School

High Peaks is a multiple-award-winning Core Knowledge focus school that opened in 1995. Teachers use creative methods such as art projects, dramatizations, reading and writing workshops, and collaborative learning to bring the Core Knowledge Sequence to life. Core Knowledge uses a planned progression of specific content in world history, geography, science, language arts and the fine arts. High Peaks also offers differentiated math opportunities, based on specific student needs, kindergarten through the sixth grade level. High Peaks is one of only two elementary schools in Colorado to receive a National Blue Ribbon Award winner twice, in 2009 and 2015, and has also won the designation of John J. Irwin School of Excellence multiple times.
