About us

The Odyssey School of Denver’s mission is to teach students how to learn through a focus on academic achievement, critical thinking and social responsibility.  What makes us different is our commitment to the following key ideas:

  • How we learn is as important as what we learn:  our students engage in long-term interdisciplinary units that get them out of the classroom, thinking deeply about real-world topics.  

  • High expectations for all learners:  all students can succeed, through great instruction and supporting students to own their learning.  

  • Living by our commitment to crew and community:  we are tight knit community where we support and push each other to be our best.

Located approximately 3 miles to the east of downtown Denver, the Odyssey School of Denver is in the ideal location to live out the principles of EL Education while also serving a diverse community. As one of 155 EL Education (formerly Expeditionary Learning) schools nation-wide, we have honed our implementation of the model for the past 18 years, enabling us to earn our EL credentialed school status.
