My Students

The AIAD is a community-based, open enrollment, public charter school that serves grades 6-12 (currently enrolling grades 6-8 for the 2020-21 school year). All students are welcome, and the school is specifically designed to address the unmet needs of American Indian and Latino students in the Denver metro area. AIAD’s model is Indigenized STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math taught through a American Indian principles and ways of knowing).

As Indigenous people of North America, we have been critical thinkers, scientists, artists, and innovators since the beginning of time.

It is our intention to help our students carry that cultural legacy into the 21st century!

AIAD believes that our cultural strengths can provide the foundation that will allow ALL students to succeed.

My Project

All of our students want to participate and be engaged in online learning. It is necessary for online learning to be engaging and fun! In order for this to happen, our students need to have all of the materials to be successful. These materials would help in day-to-day learning.

As a project-based STEAM school, kids need to be hands on.

Having the right materials will help them to participate in group activities as well as be self-reflective and focused in their daily online learning. The possibilities of what kids can do are endless!
