Challenger Receives Award

Challenger is proud to have received the John Irwin School of Excellence Award for 2014. The John Irwin Award, named after a former state legislator, is part of the Colorado School Awards Program created in 2000 by the Colorado General Assembly to recognize the highest-performing and most-improved public schools in the state, as determined by the School Accountability Reports. The reports rate schools on academic performance and growth based on standardized test results.
This annual award is given to the Colorado public schools that are in the top eight percent of School Accountability Report total scores for academic performance. Elementary, middle, and high schools can receive the award.
