Note From The Executive Director

Happy 15 years to The Rise School! It was on April 19, 2003 that The Rise School became a legal corporation and later that fall, welcomed its first class of students. Although I was not the Director at that time, I have enjoyed hearing stories from the founding families, looking at old photos, and hearing updates about our first graduates, who are now high schoolers!

We have certainly seen a lot of growth at The Rise School since then. And in case you haven’t noticed...so has Denver. With this growth has come more demand for the type of high quality early childhood education that The Rise School offers. We have always had a strong waitlist, but it has never been as robust as it is now. It seems fortuitous timing to be undergoing a campaign to expand and serve more families. Our Party with a View, held last month, was a great evening and raised $9,000 to help us keep chipping away at our campaign goal. Although I’m pleased that all of our classrooms will be at full capacity again next year, I look forward to the day when I can welcome up to 30 more families to our ever-growing, marvelous program. Happy Anniversary to us!
