Vision and Mission

At Morey, we build on every child’s unique gifts so each person becomes a self-directed, socially conscious, educated member of our diverse community, both inside and outside of the classroom.

At Morey, learning is personalized, supportive, rooted in social justice, and integrated within our local community.

Our students learn in a diverse and inclusive school that supports students of all backgrounds, identities, interests, and abilities to foster their unique gifts. We offer a highly personalized and rigorous educational program, support social skills, and develop emotional intelligence within a safe and affirming environment. With a focus on real world application, our education program is driven by student interests informed by relevant social justice issues and heightened through experiences outside the classroom.

Our families and community experience an open and welcoming school connected to greater Denver through the intentional integration of community members within a broader social justice curriculum, through transparent communication, and by honoring each family’s vision and hopes for their children.

Our staff is continuously cultivating our skills, passion, and connection to this school community through a willingness to explore new ideas and techniques, targeted professional learning, time spent building our team together, and an honest focus on equity.

At Morey, we expect MORE. We endeavor to develop Motivated, Organized, Respectful and Empathetic students.
