We provide an academic home for advanced & creative learning, and a place for unusually advanced, gifted skills to flourish. Our gifted education specialty uses a higher degree of difficulty and more complex curriculum designed for academically gifted learners.


We will create an academic home for advanced and creative learning, cultivate personal and standards-based excellence and leadership ability, and serve as a resource center for the gifted community of the Pikes Peak Region.


Our students and staff will investigate ideas and master advanced content, reflect upon their own progress, explore connections between disciplines, and lead others in positive ways to new heights in achievement and service to the community.


Students work in multi-age classrooms at highly challenging levels.
