“I am a leader. I help build a better world.” This student empowerment statement is the driving focus of everything we do at Eagle Crest. We believe all students have leadership potential, and it is our job to guide them to becoming leaders. Our program is multifaceted and dynamic. From learning about how the brain works and how to manage feelings and actions with social emotional curriculum, to student leaders running assemblies of 300-600 students at a time, Eagle Crest students develop leadership skills throughout their entire school experience.
Across the district, we have been championing a new motivational motto that is uniting our shared vision for excellence in learning and student advancement: We are taking public education by #StVrainStorm! Every day, I observe countless examples of students, teachers, staff, and community partners exemplifying the highest levels of achievement and drive that represent the very best of our public schools. Our graduation rates are at their highest level – over 90 percent at our traditional schools – and St. Vrain was also one of only four districts in Colorado and 373 nationally to be recognized by College Board’s Annual AP District Honor Roll. Enrollment in Advanced Placement (AP) courses has increased by 50 percent since 2014 with over 3,000 students enrolled in at least one AP class.
Each spring, the Education Foundation for the St. Vrain Valley hosts the Tribute to Teachers, an event that honors and recognizes the excellence of our teachers and brings out the stories of the superheroes in our district that go above and beyond. On May 4, 2019, the Education Foundation will be hosting the Tribute to Teachers at the Westin Hotel and Conference Center in Westminster.
