We just created a home search of homes that default to Swigert International School in the Denver Central Park (formerly Stapleton) Neighborhood.

https://www.realtyofco.com/swigert-international-school-denver-homes-sale/

Swigert International School is rated 7 out of 10 on greatschools.org. The link below provides more information. Here are Denver homes for sale, mostly in Central Park (formerly Stapleton) that default to Swigert International School.

https://www.greatschools.org/colorado/denver/4379-Swigert-International-School/

Swigert International School Denver Homes For Sale

Swigert International School is located in Denver, CO in the Central Park (formerly Stapleton) neighborhood.

Swigert International School strives to create innovative, intellectually curious students who share a sense of stewardship for creating a better and more peaceful world.

Swigert International School aims to develop knowledgeable, inquisitive, and compassionate young people through the collaboration of students, teachers, parents, and community.

Swigert International School Denver Homes For Sale

In 2018, the Northeast Denver Innovation Zone “NDIZ” was formed and is composed of four Innovation Status and IB Accredited or Candidate schools:  Swigert International School, McAuliffe International School, McAuliffe Manual Middle School, and Northfield High School.

Innovation Zones are distinct groupings of Denver Public Schools that collaborate to better serve students. Innovation Zones are fundamentally about educator empowerment. They exist to empower leaders and teachers with the opportunity to design and sustain a shared learning community specifically tailored to the needs of their students and communities, and the adults who serve them. Innovation Zone schools are not charter schools and remain within the school district and accountable to the DPS board.

At Swigert International School, their Innovation status and being part of the NDIZ has allowed them to exercise several waivers from the district, develop and create their own IB curriculum, set their school calendar differently from the Denver Public Schools standard calendar, and enact annual contracts for their faculty. This autonomy allows them to meet the specific needs of their school community and the flexibility to utilize a variety of resources and professional development opportunities that exist outside traditional DPS schools.

Innovation Zones are created collaboratively with leaders, teachers, parents, and communities. Benefits of an innovation zone include leader and teacher empowerment, shared learning, diversity of options, economies of scale, tailored support structures, a focus on flexibility, and community ownership.

All NDIZ schools are located in the Northeast Denver area and all NDIZ board members live within the communities the schools serve. Each Innovation Zone school has a staff member serving on the board as well as a non-voting member. All Innovation Zone schools are International Baccalaureate Schools or candidate schools and interested in creating vertical alignment and shared professional learning for staff. NDIZ schools believe in fostering community through elevating the community’s voice and increasing ownership and responsibility over academic programming and student outcomes. These schools believe in creating diverse and inclusive environments for all students, staff, and families.

Swigert International School Denver Homes For Sale

Test scores at this school are far above the state average, suggesting that most students at this school are performing at or above grade level.

English scores of low-income students at this school are at or above the state average for all kids, suggesting that this school is doing a good job of teaching low-income students.

Denver Homes For Sale Close To Bradley International School

We just created a home search of homes that default to Bradley International School in the Denver University Hills Neighborhood.

https://www.realtyofco.com/bradley-international-school-denver-homes-sale-university-hills-neighborhood/

Bradley International School strives to develop inquiring, knowledgeable, and caring young people with a sense of community, a respect and tolerance for diversity, and a love of learning.

Bradley provides a challenging 21st century curriculum to prepare our students for a promising future.

Bradley Elementary was named in honor of Charles Allen Bradley, an influential educator in the Denver Public School district. Mr. Bradley was a teacher at East High School in 1883, a vice principal at East in 1891, and principal of the Manual Training High School in 1893. He retired in June of 1928.

Denver Homes For Sale Close To Bradley International School

Bradley Elementary School was one of twelve elementary schools within the Denver Public School system completed in 1952. The building houses twenty-nine classrooms, a library, gymnasium, auditorium and cafeteria. It has a capacity of about 700 students. Bradley offers Early Childhood Education (ECE), Kindergarten, and first through fifth grade.

Historically, Bradley has been a neighborhood school for the University Hills, Holly Hills and other Southeast Denver Neighborhoods.

During the 1960’s, Bradley had 1400 students enrolled in Kindergarten through fifth grade. Over the course of the years, times changed and so did Bradley.

Bradley was granted candidacy in January 2006 to try out the International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP). The staff spent the following two years attending IB certified workshops and trainings in order to write the grade level planners and begin implementing the programme. A site evaluation team visited the school and granted IB authorization in April 2008 for Bradley to become an official IB school. November of 2016 was the most recent visit by IB for a school evaluation in order to ensure Bradley is maintaining the integrity of the programme through the teaching and learning practices.

Currently, Bradley has approximately 550 students, and is the only southeast Denver IB school. Student enrollment is growing every year, and Bradley has a wonderful and dedicated group of teachers and staff that are committed to the success of each and every student at the school.

Denver Homes For Sale Close To Bradley International School

Test scores at this school are far above the state average, suggesting that most students at this school are performing at or above grade level.

Disadvantaged students at this school are performing better than other students in the state, though this school may still have achievement gaps.

Colorado Realtor Revew: Real Estate Agent Christopher Gibson September 16, 2020

I just received an incredibly generous review of my real estate services from this home buyer I helped in Colorado Springs. You can see it on Google

Chris came highly recommended to us from a family member. We were living overseas and wanted to buy a house in Colorado Springs before we arrived. Chris took amazing videos of several houses for us to look at and he was really honest in all of his assessments. He took into account the things that were priorities for us and was also patient and responsive. He helped us find a terrific home (on a tight timeline) and we were really happy with the whole process. We would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone!
