A proudly diverse community of learners, Skinner staff and students are engaged in a single-minded pursuit of high academic achievement for all, utilizing cooperation and collaboration as key strategies toward reaching that end. Our spotlight on the ‘whole child’ is evident as we offer not only superior Math and Literacy instruction, but enrichment courses, activities and community-building through our unique Learning Families.
Built in 1922 as one of the country’s finest examples of a “Junior High” and the first in Denver, Skinner aimed to keep students in school by offering an enriched curriculum in order to meet the diverse needs of adolescents. Fast forward nearly 100 years: A visit to Skinner Middle School reveals that very school, geared to the 21st century students. Our aim is now directed at preparing all students for high school and college and career readiness. We invite you to explore our website for a wealth of information about Skinner.
