Award-winning Denver schools
Good schools are a parent’s top priority. And Stapleton’s schools are ranked among the very best in Colorado. They’re new, they’re innovative and they come with an entire community of actively involved, well-educated parents who support these Denver schools and each other.
Northfield High School is planned as a liberal arts and sciences high school with a challenging and exciting academic program and a full array of electives, athletics, clubs and after-school activities. The school will open with a freshman class in the fall of 2015 and grow by one grade per year. All students will participate in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program. The school model will encourage student creativity, self-awareness, and collaboration and interaction among students with different interests as we develop a fully inclusive school community.
The Denver School of Science and Technology (DSST) is Stapleton's first charter high school. And every year, DSST sends several Denver Public school students into the Colorado workforce by requiring juniors and seniors to complete an internship. It’s all part of why 100% of DSST’s graduates were accepted to college over the last few years.
Westerly Creek Elementary School (K-5) and William R. Roberts ECE-8 are both Denver Public Elementary School.
Bill Roberts offers classes from early childhood development to eighth grade. And it’s energy-efficient campus in heated and cooled by geothermal renewable energy.
The Swigert-McAuliffe International campus includes two separate schools: Swigert International School serves ECE through fourth grade – the school will add fifth grade during the 2014-15 school year. McAuliffe International School also serves sixth and seventh grade, but will serve eighth grade during the 2014-15 year. Additionally, McAuliffe will relocate to Park Hill in August 2015, and Denver Discovery School will open in its place.
The current Swigert-McAuliffe campus is located at 3480 Syracuse St.
Isabella Bird Community School will include ECE through fifth grade this fall, while another Stapleton school, High Tech Elementary, will eventually serve the same grade levels. High Tech will also open this fall!
Additionally, Montessori Children’s House of Denver is a private preschool and elementary school that was established in 1991. The school’s Stapleton campus is its fourth Denver location, offering a curriculum that emphasizes science, art, math, reading, geography, cultural studies and peace education.
