Founded in 1996 by a team of pastors, businessmen, and community members, Inner City School (ICS) empowers students living in inner city Denver to be academically excellent and successful. Our students are exposed to faith-based principles which are integrated into challenging academic programs. ICS students have learned chess, built robots, and learned a number of exceptional skills. Students learn in small, integrated classes that are disciplined and fun.
The cross-cultural team of pastors, business-men and community members that founded our school originally came together because they were concerned about the accelerated rate of Denver's academic failure and high school dropouts. Growing up in Denver’s inner city, many children lack the resources and role models to succeed academically. Concentrated poverty compounds this problem and makes economic improvement and academic success more unlikely. Currently, 90% of ICS students qualify for the federal Free Lunch Program, a current marker of child poverty. Without intervention, these students face discouraging odds.
The founders of Inner City School envisioned a faith-based, culturally relevant, academic success program that would allow disadvantaged children to reach their highest potential. Students learn valuable lessons, participate in hands on learning activities and grow through Biblical teaching. Inner City School encourages growth, learning, and fun- while incorporating Christian values and weekly chapels into the curriculum.
