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.
Challenger Middle School is a "School of Innovative Learning and Technology" (SILT). Instruction is delivered through one to one iPad implementation with all 6th grade students having an iPad (2013-14 school year), all 7th graders having an iPad (2014-15 school year) and all 8th graders having an iPad in the 2015-16 school year. There is a yearly $50.00 user fee that covers accidental breakage of the device.
In partnership with family and community, dedicated to the development of the whole child, we educate each unique middle level learner in a safe, nurturing, technologically-enhanced environment and prepare them for ethical, responsible participation in the ever-changing world.
