Who we are:
At the Downtown Denver Expeditionary School, we believe that how children learn is just as important as what they learn.
Our curriculum is designed around expeditions – interactive, hands-on projects that spark curiosity, promote active learning, encourage teamwork, build character, and capitalize on children’s innate spirit of adventure.
By undertaking comprehensive studies of real-world issues, students learn to make connections, understand diverse perspectives, develop conclusions, and generalize big ideas.
