Grant Beacon Middle School is committed to its students being among the highest in academic growth in the state, well-rounded in their interests and abilities, and recognized in the community for outstanding character.

The rigorous course of study we have developed is resulting in GBMS being a high performing school that prepares students for high school, college and beyond.

GBMS provides a learning environment that nurtures the whole child. We offer an extended day that allows us to offer a range of enrichments that afford students the opportunity to participate in Sports & Wellness; Literature, Arts, Culture & History; and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) courses.

GBMS is a place for students that is safe, orderly, and enriching where the standards are high for all students.

What is an Innovation School?

Passed in 2008, the Innovation Schools Act provides a pathway for schools to develop practices to better meet the needs of individual students and allows them more autonomy to make decisions at the school-level. Application for Innovation status must be approved by a local school board and the Colorado Department of Education.

GBMS has gained such approval giving it the ability to implement:

A more rigorous college prep curriculum
Blended learning with technology-based instruction, applications, and assessments
A system for frequently analyzing student data
Research-based interventions that result in high growth and achievement.

Innovation Status will allow Grant Beacon Middle School to increase instructional time, continue to reduce class sizes in reading, writing and math and continue to provide professional development needed to meet the needs of our diverse learners.

SPECIFIC AREAS OF INNOVATION INCLUDE:

Integration of Technology including an assigned Chromebook for every student.
Rigorous Academics and additional time for math and reading interventions in extended day.
Enrichment Opportunities including music/band and foreign language electives.

Enrichments

Academics

We believe that Math is the universal language used to interpret, predict, and manipulate our surroundings.  By Developing our mathematical abilities, we simultaneously foster critical thinking and problem solving skills that enable us to make informed decisions. 

We believe a love for reading and writing empowers people to confidently navigate through life and explore the richness of the human experience.

We believe that humans are innately curious and that science will help us solve for problems that know and those we do not yet know. Students need to understand and apply the timeless skills of scientific inquiry and the design cycle to fully participate as learners in the world.

STEM: 

We believe that stem provides pathways for students to practice problem-solving and critical thinking skills through the application of an inquiry based process of design, rooted in thoughtful consideration of end users, in an environment that is collaborative, hands on, and fun. Through the application of cross-curricular content knowledge in solving real world problems, students gain the academic and entrepeneurial skills to make them more marketable in the global workforce.

We live in an increasingly connected, yet complex, world. We believe that social studies is the key to understanding the relationships between people and places across time and space. By exploring multiple perspectives surrounding themes in human history and the modern world, students gain a deep understanding of themselves and can think critically about the world around them.

We believe that students will be more studious when they have the ability to choose a subject that interests them.

We believe that all students deserve the best education.  We have a dedicated team of special educators and affective needs professionals with a wide range of experience and compassion.
