Who We Need

“If we’re going to pursue our dream of living in great, safe neighborhoods, we need to make sure those schools are performing, that they have the best teachers, the best principals and programming, and again as STRIVE Prep has proven, the highest level of expectations of every child and family that walks through those doors.”

Michael B. Hancock, Mayor of Denver

Agents of Social Change

STRIVE Prep currently serves students in kindergarten through twelfth grade throughout Far Northeast, Northwest and Southwest Denver.  There are still thousands of families for whom an outstanding public education is just out of reach.  STRIVE Prep is committed to making this kind of education the norm, rather than the exception.  So, we’re growing from 11 schools serving 3,500 students to 17 schools, serving 7,500 students.  We need passionate and motivated teachers, leaders and support staff to help us support our scholars as they STRIVE for college.

Dynamic Teachers

We know that teachers are one of the most critical factors to a student’s academic success.  That’s why we work tirelessly to attract, recruit and retain talented and driven change-makers who believe that every child deserves access to a high quality, college prep education.  Successful teachers at STRIVE Prep are smart, driven leaders who pursue excellence at every level. Our teachers are data-driven professionals with proven track records of success.  Teachers are deeply knowledgeable about their content and are constantly looking to improve their practice.  They have excellent classroom management skills and solid rapport with students and families.
