STRIVE Prep – SMART is an excellent school option for all Southwest Denver students who want a high-quality, well-rounded education. Traditionally, SW Denver has not provided enough options for students who want a rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum, as well as extra-curricular opportunities that open up doors for them and allow them to expand their leadership. As a college-preparatory school and CHSAA member, we have the academics, electives, athletics, and extracurriculars that our students want and deserve. To compliment that, our staff is enthusiastic about our school community, and passionately serves our students and families every day. School pride at STRIVE Prep – SMART is at an all time high.Jack Holmes
