Join the Biliteracy School for Southwest Denver’s Youngest Students
KIPP Sunshine Peak Elementary students live and learn in our school’s values of love, honor, curiosity, activism, and growth. We support all learners and celebrate the uniqueness of each child – as a Team and Family we will shine! We offer a biliteracy model where students receive half their instruction in Spanish and half in English, with differentiated, small group literacy instruction in their family-identified heritage language. Our goal is to promote and celebrate biliteracy, creating dual-language speakers, readers, and writers.
KIPP Sunshine Peak Elementary offers a full-day Early Childhood Education (ECE) program for 3 and 4- year olds, full-day Kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, and fourth grade.
If you have any questions about the school, please contact us at (720) 452-2572 or fill out this form to request more information.
Principal at KIPP Sunshine Peak Elementary
Darby West is our founding Principal at KIPP Sunshine Peak Elementary. She graduated from Northwestern University in 2006 from the School of Education and Social Policy with a Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Psychological Services. In 2012, she graduated with masters from Columbia University Teachers College with a degree in Literacy Instruction. Darby began at KIPP NYC eight years ago because she wanted to find a home with a team of people who believe in the Power of ‘AND’, meaning that from the individual to the organizational level, we seek to find broken paradoxes and prove that in a world of black and white or yes and no, we can find a third way and show that two seemingly mutually exclusive ideas are not. Rather, when they work together, both can succeed. We are never scared to ask the hard questions. We build schools for and with our communities and seek to amplify voices around us for equity and access.
