School Overview

Our Vision Statement:
Columbine is a collaborative STEM community which inspires empathetic and creative problem solvers who positively impact the world around them.

Our Mission Statement:
We believe that through inquiry and problem-based instruction, we build the interdisciplinary connections inspiring students to be creative, empathetic, and critical thinkers. Students are given opportunities to take risks, pursue their interests, and make choices throughout their learning process.

We value continuous reflection and iteration through the Design Thinking process. As a community of learners, we use this process to provide a rigorous STEM education exposing students to content and skills they need beyond our classrooms.

We believe collaboration drives learning at our school. Our relationships among students, families, teachers, and the community, strengthen our ability to create diverse and authentic learning environments. By building strong partnerships within our community, we provide the experiences and develop skills sets to inspire, engage, and empower students to positively impact the world around them.
