School Notes

  • Mackintosh Academy maximizes learning potential and promotes development of the whole child: cognitively, socially, emotionally, creatively, and physically. Our rich International Baccalaureate curriculum incorporates challenging academics with the arts, physical education, languages, and technology. We offer small classes (8:1 faculty/student ratio) on a newly-upgraded campus in the heart of Littleton, just 20 minutes from downtown Denver and easily accessible via C-470 and Santa Fe.
  • A child who is academically prepared, however, is only partially equipped to make a meaningful contribution to society. We deeply care and are responsive to the variety of factors influencing a gifted child`s social-emotional and interpersonal development. Students need to respect themselves and others, listen actively, think critically, negotiate conflict, build resiliency, take responsibility, and understand that other people, with their differences, can also be right.
  • Students in the 21st century are faced with the challenges and opportunities of learning in an interconnected world where knowledge is constantly developing. We prepare students to be active participants in a lifelong journey of learning through inquiry and reflection. We cultivate strong and trusting relationships among students and faculty to support and tend to the optimal growth of each child's unique potential.

Amazing teachers and community! Our kids have thrived at Mackintosh and recommend unconditionally!

As the parent of two Mackintosh alumni, I couldn't be more thrilled with the education this school provided for my children. The small class sizes, innovative IB curriculum, and kind, dedicated teachers made my children's elementary and middle school years exceptionally. Both of my children were incredibly well-prepared for high school and went on to successful college careers as well. In recent years, the campus upgrades and staffing expansion have made this fantastic school even stronger!
