- St. Elizabeth`s School opened its doors in 2007 with a kindergarten class of seven students. As a result of the strong vision of the founding Board and the leadership of Head of School, Ramsay Stabler (former Head of School at St. Anne's Episcopal School in Denver), we have grown to our current student population of 150 students enrolled for grades K-8 in 2016.
- St. Elizabeth`s School is committed to enrolling a truly inclusive and diverse school community. Essential to this mission is the Family Commitment Plan, which is a sliding scale tuition system that eliminates the categories of "scholarship" or "financial aid". It is designed to determine each student`s tuition according to the principle that a family`s financial commitment should be equitable to its financial resources. The School is also very intentional about enrolling an ethnically, culturally, racially and spiritually diverse student population. This provides many unique opportunities for students to collaborate with others who come from a different life experience and a different world perspective.
- While St Elizabeth's is not an "arts school", we do honor the arts, with K-5 grade levels receiving two days of visual arts instruction and three days of music instruction per week. Students also study Spanish two days a week, and participate in Faith Studies twice a week and PE five times a week. Middle School students receive four days of Spanish language instruction, and continue visual and performing arts instruction with the addition of drama.
- The middle school years are a time of immense change and vulnerability. St. Elizabeth`s School strongly believes in the benefits of a small, supportive, K-8 environment, where students can comfortably grow into their confidence and individual identities. The school is small enough that students feel that they are truly known and accepted. Our middle school students collaborate to implement a code of behavior, and they utilize a mixed grade advisor system to support accountability and healthy social/emotional development. Dedicated teachers create a safe, warm environment for emerging teens. The school's internal commitment to equity and social justice is practiced outside of the school as the students actively engage in community service. Graduates will be academically prepared for challenging high school curriculum, and will carry the legacy of intentional inclusion as they move on to the broader world community.
- St. Elizabeth`s is located at 2350 Gaylord St., on the West end of City Park, in the former Loyola Catholic Grade School building. This central location provides ready access to City Park, the Denver Zoo, DMNS, the DCPA and the Capitol building.
