Peak to Peak's K-12 Curriculum

Peak to Peak's curriculum is designed from the ground up for graduates to meet or exceed the entrance requirements of top colleges and universities. The elementary, middle, and high school programs have been carefully crafted as a unified, coherent, and challenging curriculum, which progressively builds each student's foundation of knowledge and mastery of skills, while preparing them for university life. The curriculum is more fully described through the documents found on the K-12 Curriculum page of our website where you will find links to the elementary curriculum documents and the middle and high school course description books. You can additionally find more information about Peak to Peak's character education program, local and national student trips as a facet of the curriculum, summer reading and assignment expectations, our testing program, and the graduation requirements.

Peak to Peak's Beginnings
Peak to Peak was born of the dream of parents who envisioned a school dedicated to outstanding scholarship that would challenge students to achieve their academic potential. The school was first discussed among about a dozen people in November 1997. Those gathered were concerned about possible limits to open enrollment opportunities in BVSD and wanted to offer families a K-12 college preparatory charter school option.

Technology Support and Information

  

Infinite Campus

Infinite Campus (IC) is a web-based student information system and data warehouse used by all schools in the Boulder Valley School District. Parents can access student schedules, grades, attendance records, and other reports through this system. As your new student's information is loaded into IC and the new school year is launched, you will receive an activation email to initiate your account. The email will contain an activation code that you will enter the first time you enter IC. Some of you may have already received this email. If not, you should receive it before registration in August. The email will be sent to the email address you provided to the registrar.

If you have students in your family that have already been attending Peak to Peak and your new student is a sibling, you have probably already established your IC account. In this case, your new student's information will be added to your existing account.

As we approach the new school year in August, if you have not received an activation code or if you need assistance with accessing your IC account, please reach out to the front office. Please wait until August when we are able to help you. There is a link to IC for parents on the Parents/Guardians Page of the Peak to Peak website
