About KIPP Sunshine Peak Elementary

KIPP Sunshine Peak Elementary opened its doors to our founding classes in Fall 2018. We offer ECE-3, ECE-4, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, and fourth grade. We proudly have a 1:6 student-to-teacher ratio providing a highly specialized learning experience.

KIPP Sunshine Peak Elementary has received a rating of 4 on Colorado Shines! This is a testament to our commitment to providing a high-quality learning environment that supports the development of Southwest Denver’s youngest minds. This Colorado Shines rating is one way that KIPP Sunshine Peak Elementary demonstrates its quality and dedication to continually improving the services it offers.

At KIPP Sunshine Peak Elementary, our work is grounded in our mission to provide an excellent and equitable education that teaches our children to be critical and creative problem solvers, lifelong learners, and activists who recognize and respond to injustice in their community and the world.

KIPP Colorado Public Schools has called the Southwest Denver community home for over 20 years. Our newest elementary school and ECE program is the result of listening to the needs of current KIPP Colorado families and members of the Southwest Denver community, who voiced an interest in an elementary school for their children focused on bilingual education and a high-quality early childhood education program. We’re excited to join a legacy of success with our middle school and high school, KIPP Sunshine Peak Academy, and KIPP Denver Collegiate High School!

Families meet monthly with the school leadership team at Cafecito meetings. This is an organic, open forum where families can provide input on curriculum needs, staffing, after-school programming, etc. During these meetings, our Social Worker also teaches how you can incorporate our Conscious Discipline Social Emotional Learning Structure to your home! All families are invited to attend these meetings.

Collaborative School Committee (CSC)

Parent and staff committee members are elected by their school to participate in quarterly meetings to discuss the school’s priorities, progress, and practices in order to ensure they are inclusive of family, student, and staff voices. School leaders make decisions about their school with input from their CSC.
