The center of gravity should be in each child, not in an inflexible curriculum.
What Matters to Micro? More of What Matters Most.
Highlands Micro School is a progressive, non-religious, independent elementary school in Northwest Denver. Micro students, teachers and parents value learning as a life-long process, and believe that each child is a unique and capable student. The Schoolhouse is a creative and nurturing environment where teachers and parents work together, providing rich social and academic opportunities. Our mission is to harness the joy of curiosity and inquiry, using it to promote problem solving and social skills so that our students may become confident, resourceful community members.
At capacity, our total number of students is 24. This small group of eager learners is supported by two full-time teachers and two full-time teachers in residence.
