Art at High Peaks

Art classes are learning about the colors of the color wheel.  What better way to showcase these colors than the vibrant colors of the Chihuly exhibition at the Denver Botanic Gardens.  Students study the artist, the colors and the exhibits. Then using a variety of mediums, re-create some of the flowers and exhibits.

Technology at High Peaks

Chrome books are a large part of our students learning.  With 2 chromebook carts and a state of the art computer lab, our students are expanding their learning experiences through technology to become new century learners
