Principal Welcome


If your family is new to Pikes Peak Prep, you’ve joined a very special school. Pikes Peak Prep is a close-knit, educational community that promotes the academic and social development of all students in a safe, friendly environment. I am excited and honored to be the principal of Pikes Peak Prep. It’s going to be an amazing school year!

Our dedicated teachers and staff serve approximately 325 students in grades kindergarten through 12. Ours is a classical Core Knowledge-based curriculum school taught by TAP certified teachers using techniques espoused by Uncommon Schools. We actively monitor students’ progress by using DIBELS and NWEA assessments and use the data generated to drive daily instruction. Pikes Peak Prep teachers and learning coaches facilitate differentiated learning through blended learning practices.

Every student at Pikes Peak Prep is COLLEGE BOUND.

We offer programming in art and physical education on site and are proud to partner with the Colorado Springs Conservatory where our students receive private musical instruction (at no cost to families!).

Parents/Guardians are always welcome at Pikes Peak Prep! Teachers and staff look forward to working with you as equal partners to create a meaningful education for your child. Numerous studies, including one by the Center for Public Education, highlight the importance of family involvement with school by staying in communication with teachers and staff, volunteering in classrooms, creating at-home learning experiences through progress monitoring and homework support, becoming involved in school clubs and organizations, and helping us establish connections with our community for expanded partnership opportunities.

I am humbled to be working with the outstanding teachers and staff at Pikes Peak Prep. We invite you to join our school community as we work together to serve our students. Please feel free to contact me at if you have a suggestion, a concern, a good story to share, or if you’re interested in joining our school community. It’s going to be an incredible year!
