In 2010, Founding Principal Julia Miller Shepherd formed and led a design team of educators and parents to develop Creativity Challenge Community School. This new innovation school in Denver was created to accommodate the need for additional elementary seats in the community while responding to enrollment attrition to private schools. Attributes for success were identified by visiting both private and public schools across the metro area. Focus of the Creativity Challenge Community School program was designed to include creative thinking in all grades, a new parent community and community partnerships throughout the city of Denver, all while challenging kids to achieve their best.
