ABOUT PEAKSub Menu
The Peak School is an independent school serving middle and high school grades located in Summit County, Colorado. We combine progressive education with high academic expectations, and believe in creating a community built around common goals and intellectual curiosity. Our membership in the Coalition of Essential Schools provides affiliation with progressive schools around the country embracing similar professional practice.
With a focus on personalized education, Peak has small class sizes that enable teachers to individualize instruction and ensure that our students receive personal attention. Our teachers are experts in their fields, and consistently provide differentiated and innovative instruction across the curriculum, with a focus on “doing,” not just “learning.” Our belief in independent curriculum empowers a deeper way of learning because we’re not simply giving students information, but rather teaching them how to develop themselves as learners and citizens.
A commitment to character, citizenship, and community is the foundation of our instructional philosophies and school culture.
