AN INDEPENDENT LAB SCHOOL FOCUSING ON RETURNING LEARNING TO THE COMMUNITY

What began as a small idea to reinvent middle school education has emerged as a big idea to fundamentally change where and how kids are educated.

Cutout Stars

Transcend  selected La Luz as one of the 15 most innovative programs in the country to expand equitable access to personalized education.

WHY LA LUZ?

La Luz is a belief that learning should return to the community! Middle school is an antiquated and harrowing experience that very few adults would ever sign up for and instead of just telling students to hang in there for three years,...three long years, we believe we can do better. We believe actual learning happens through authentic, hands-on experiences and yes, we believe true learning is FUN!  While this is an old idea, we believe this is the future of education.

 

 HOW ARE WE DIFFERENT?

We know learning can and should happen anywhere and at anytime, not just in a classroom!  So, we are living it.  Everyday, we leave "Base Camp" at  Newlon Elementary, hop in our vans, and spend time with amazing community partners (Denver Zoo, History Colorado, CSU Spur, Always Choose Adventure to name a few).  Additionally, we just love Forest School and are stoked that our students will spend 25% of their school year outdoors.

 

COMMUNITY BUILT

Today, a significant portion of our effort is dedicated to collaborating with community partners and businesses to advance the cause of holistic youth education throughout our community.  We are not only pushing schools to think differently about educating kids, we are working with our community to be part of the solution.  We are laying the groundwork for schools and districts to have other options!
