HPS Motto: Charging through failures, Stampeding through challenges
It is with great pleasure that we welcome back our returning families and some new ones too! As we head into year five, this year will definitely not be a typical year, but our staff is ready to make it an incredible year for each of our students. Our mission has not changed:
High Plains is a kindergarten through eighth-grade STEAM school fueled by innovative and authentic learning opportunities where all members feel safe, valued, and empowered. Students are immersed in the inquiry process while taking risks and engaging in issues facing our community in order to have a positive impact on our world today, tomorrow, and in years to come.
Whether we are 100% remote, a hybrid, or 100% in person our staff is committed to building relationships with our students, families, and community to support the academic and social-emotional development of our K-8 scholars. Our students will still participate in authentic and relevant Problem Based Learning (PBL) experiences, while developing the foundational academic skills and "soft skills" that will serve them well throughout their K-12 educational journey and beyond.
We thank all of our families, PTCO, and community members for your support over the past four years. We look forward to another successful school year and welcome your support, in whatever form that may take.
