The school opened in August, 2010 with a highly challenging, highly supportive environment for gifted students, an advanced, integrated curriculum model, and multi-age classrooms. Teachers provide above-grade-level curriculum at a faster pace with less repetition for individual students to progress in their areas of strength. Additional Encore subjects include Visual Art, Music & Theater, Spanish, and Physical Education. From across the Pikes Peak Region, enrolled families attend five student conferences and provide at least fifteen hours of volunteer service at the school each year.
