What is the STEAD School?

The STEAD School is… 

  • A community of people who consider themselves stewards of their environment. Through our work and studies, we aim to address complex food, health, environmental, and energy challenges that face the state, the nation, and the planet. We are pioneers (not settlers) and adventurer-seekers building an out-of-the-box high school! You will be part of an educational movement and community that tackles education with meaning, purposeful work, interconnectedness, and heads, hearts, and hands.

  • A public, independent, 5 day-per-week charter school located in Reunion, serving a diverse demographic of students from all corners of the urban, sub-urban, rural communities of Northeastern Denver Metro, Brighton, Commerce City and greater Adams County.

  • A problem-driven, project-based curricular model committed to a competency-based personalized learning philosophy that believes every kid can reach proficiency. • A marriage between Science, Technology, Environment, Agriculture, and Design within a well-rounded, expansive and enriching family of creative, physical, artistic, musical, literary, and athletic pursuits.

  • A small school with BIG vision. Small class sizes with BIG ideas. Small on “schooling,” BIG on “learning.”

The STEAD School team is committed to building a community that is diverse and inclusive of all humans. As a school community, we recognize that not all students who attend a public school have access to high quality learning opportunities.  We also recognize that inequities across systems have historically disproportionately left minority communities behind.  In order to disrupt systemic inequities, we strive to support student leaders on their journeys in becoming critical thinkers and risk takers who are prepared to disrupt systems.

The Principal is dedicated to this policy with respect to recruitment, hiring, placement, promotion, transfer, training, compensation, benefits, employee activities, and general treatment during employment.
