RiseUp Community School is closed tomorrow, January 16, due to weather.
We are humbled and honored to be the recipient of Governor Polis’s Bright Spot Award! We are one of 21 schools recognized in the state and are one of 5 high schools, 6 from Denver, and only 2 alternative high schools.
Click here to see a video of the amazing work our students are doing with Nidia Amado around Comprehensive Human Sexuality Education, in partnership with the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment. The curriculum is age-appropriate, medically accurate, does not promote a specific religion, encourages family communication, provides students information on recognizing and avoiding sexual abuse, develops knowledge and skills, and promotes healthy attitudes toward development, self-esteem, and body image.
