The Garden to Table program at High Peaks is in its 4th successful year. From sowing the seeds, to harvesting, to cleaning and serving the vegetables, each grade level takes part in the success of our garden!
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle, and high schools where students either achieve very high learning standards or are making notable improvements in closing the achievement gap.
High Peaks first ever participation in the Lights of December Parade was a huge success and enjoyed by all. We can’t wait to do it again, next year!
Board of Education approved the Educational Facilities Master Plan, which will lead to improvements for all schools, including High Peaks.
Students in classes learn the BVSD Art Standards, including the color wheel and artist studies. In this example, students studied the vibrant colors of the Chihuly exhibition at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Using a variety of mediums, students re-created some of the flowers from the exhibit.
Google Chromebook computers are a significant part of our students' learning. With over 60 Chromebooks, four Chromebook carts and a state of the art computer lab, our students are expanding their learning experiences through technology to become new century learners
All money raised through the Giving Tree campaign goes directly toward enriching our students' educational experience. From technology, to books, to extra Tutor and TAG hours, each student benefits from the Giving Tree campaign.
Music is an integral part of learning at High Peaks. Core Knowledge learning is incorporated into our music program. Interactive lessons involve musical dynamics, singing, rhythm, rhyme, dancing and playing musical instruments.
Interactive learning invigorates the classroom for both students and teachers. Lessons turn into activities; students and teachers become partners in the exciting journey of learning. SMART Boards in each classroom integrate both online and classroom strategies to enhance student engagement and mastery of our Core Knowledge curriculum.
