As students move into the Upper School, our commitment to learning and growing is evident.  From the beautiful commons area, where students can be seen studying, discussing real-world issues and growing their independence, to the music room, classrooms, study rooms, each student is dedicated to their own learning experience.

Students blessed staff and visitors at Littleton Adventist Hospital with Christmas music from Middle and Upper School music groups.

Don’t know what a Junk Scramble is?  Well, imagine 70 students divided into four teams, each in their own color, head to toe.  Then, they are all trying to find a particular item at the same time, while intermittently doing challenges, and running to be first.

The chaos, noise, excitement, anxiety, it’s all palpable.  And then, from the stands, you have families cheering it all on dressed in like colors as if they were out on the floor.  It’s a combination of adrenaline and laughter that is something to behold.

Students at Mile High Academy learn in lots of different ways.  However, a few things are always true, the teachers are passionate about creating learning environments that meets students where they are, asking questions that make students think big, and provide spaces where collaboration is the key to success.

More on the Upper School Music Learning Trip…

So far, the Upper School Music groups have gone to Des Moines, performed at the Des Moines Seventh-day Adventist School.  Then on to Chicago where they’ve enjoyed deep dish pizza and gone to the biggest science museum  in the northern hemisphere, Museum of Science and Industry.  There is still fun to be had and music to be played.
