“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
STRIVE Prep is committed to developing the best teachers and leaders to serve our students and give them the skills and confidence needed to strive for college and thrive throughout life. Regardless of where you’re from or the path you’ve taken to the classroom, at STRIVE Prep, you can make a lifelong impact on kids and communities.
Our community of educators:
Finding talented educators who are committed to the lifelong success of our scholars can’t be done on our own. So, we’re proud to partner with local and national organizations whose networks of educators align with our values and commitment to serve every child.
Breakthrough operates summer and school-year programming to partner with students from under-resourced communities on their paths to college, and offers a challenging teaching residency for college undergraduates under the guidance of professional teachers. STRIVE Prep partners with Breakthrough in an effort to attract and develop talented educators to reverse educational inequities. To learn more visit www.breakthroughcollaborative.org.
