A Day of Excellence: An Inside View of Education in Our Community
Share Your Voice and Celebrate Our Schools
We invite you to spend the day deepening your knowledge of district operations, lending your voice to future planning and programs, and celebrating the achievements of our students, teachers, staff, and partners who have transformed St.
Across the district, we have been championing a new motivational motto that is uniting our shared vision for excellence in learning and student advancement: We are taking public education by #StVrainStorm! Every day, I observe countless examples of students, teachers, staff, and community partners exemplifying the highest levels of achievement and drive that represent the very best of our public schools. Our graduation rates are at their highest level – over 90 percent at our traditional schools – and St. Vrain was also one of only four districts in Colorado and 373 nationally to be recognized by College Board’s Annual AP District Honor Roll. Enrollment in Advanced Placement (AP) courses has increased by 50 percent since 2014 with over 3,000 students enrolled in at least one AP class.
