If you are interested in coming to RiseUp Community School, we will be enrolling new students to start on February 21st, 2017. Please come in before that date to meet with the Registrar.

Dear Friends and Families,

Welcome back! We are incredibly excited to begin our second year here at RiseUp Community School! We embark on this journey with a promise to you, our students and parents, that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful and rigorous work in our classrooms, combined with special events and activities to encourage our students and families to be involved and stay connected!


Over the past year, we have had a chance to meet many of you and your families, and look forward to continue building a strong relationship with all of you during this next school year.

Our vision remains…

We believe that all young people, regardless of their circumstances, have access to an education that prepares them to counter social inequities and realize their full potential. 


We invite and encourage students and parents to work in partnership with us to seize opportunities in all five values of RiseUp — (respect, responsibility, acceptance, growth, trust) Please know that we highly value home/school communication, as it is vital and plays an integral role in each student’s success.  We encourage you to contact us if/when the need arises, and to stay connected about your student’s studies, assignments, assessments, and school activities, as well as other events and happenings. If you need to contact Lucas our school Principal, he can be reached at 303-447-0517 ext. 102. To reach Karen our Assistant Principal, please communicate ext. 103.


Again, we welcome you to RiseUp and to our wonderful learning community. Here’s to an AWESOME new school year as we work together to make our school a great place to work and learn each day!



Karen Ikegami and Lucas Ketzer
