He is in hallways and upper elementary classes getting himself familiar with the faculty and students. If you would like to obtain further information about the 7th grade program, please reach out and we will put you in touch with Rhett. Thanks for joining the team Rhett.

Meal Program Poll for the 2023 -2024 school year.

As we begin to plan for next year, we would like to get a better idea of how many families will be utilizing the free breakfasts and lunches offered at Montessori Peaks Academy. We would greatly appreciate a few minutes of your time to answer these short questions. This is simply an interest poll only, we are not asking for any commitments or promises. If you have questions regarding the school meals please contact our Servery Manager, Ms. Shannon @ or 303-972-2627 extension 130

"NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND" in Vehicles on MPA Campus

Please do not leave your children in your vehicle alone at anytime while on the MPA premises. Although it is not illegal to leave a child alone in a vehicle, it is frowned upon, and we do receive complaints from parents. If need be the Sheriff will be called. Should anything happen while the child is unattended, MPA cannot be held responsible or liable. If your child is in Elementary, please use the hug and drop; we guarantee your child will make it safely into the building, and this is beneficial to your other children. If you are dropping off your Primary student, please park and take all of your children with you to escort your MPA child to their classroom.

We cannot stress the importance of safety and precautions at all times. If you need assistance please call the office and we will meet you at your vehicle.

Drop Off in the Morning

Please do not drop off your student in the street on Capri. This is very dangerous. We have had eye witnesses inform staff that students are having to dodge vehicles to make it onto the property to enter the school.

Come in the whole circle and have your student let out with the team of volunteers. The students look forward to the good morning welcome.

Help our students stay safe at all times. Thank you in advance for following the protocols.
