Four things set us apart:
*We are a small school with a small staff emphasizing a personalized approach for every student. The director and one teacher have earned the state-level Online Teacher Recognition Award from the Colorado Department of Education for excellence in online teaching! Other staff awards/accomplishments include two Monte Vista Teacher of the Year awards, two published authors, and a teacher has been a presenter at state and national education conferences the last two years. We truly have an exceptional staff; but we're not about us - we're about serving students as best we can.
