Welcome to STRIVE Prep - SMART

Welcome to STRIVE Prep - SMART!

It is my privilege to serve as the Principal at STRIVE Prep - SMART, where we endeavor to develop our students as future leaders of the 21st century. Together, through a culture of partnership with many key stakeholders, our students are empowered with the knowledge, skills, and work ethic required to solve 21st-century problems. We serve all children that are a part of our school community -- promising them a safe school environment, and preparing them for the opportunity and challenges of higher education. Our intensive college preparatory curriculum includes AP coursework and requirements that exceed the Colorado Department of Higher Education for entrance into many four-year colleges.

I am excited to continue our journey to excellence. We are geared up to establish and maintain momentum throughout this year and beyond, reaching for new goals, and persevering through new challenges. I am committed to providing resources and maintaining systems that will support all students in maximizing their learning potential. Likewise, our staff is committed to creating a learning environment that both engages and stimulates the curiosity of our students, and prepares them for life beyond graduation.

Again, on behalf of our wonderful and committed staff, I would like to welcome you to STRIVE Prep - SMART. We cannot do this very important work without you! We look forward to seeing you at our many family engagement nights, all of which will be communicated out from our main office. Thank you for working together with us to provide your child with the best possible education and school experience. Your input and ideas are important to us. Please contact us anytime.
