Welcome to Aspen Academy Middle School, where we embark on an exciting journey of growth, discovery, and achievement! As the proud director of this vibrant educational community, I am thrilled to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to our students, parents, and faculty. At our core, we value kindness, the power of doing good, and the importance of hard work. These values shape the foundation of our school culture and guide our interactions, making Aspen’s Middle School a place where every child can thrive and reach their full potential.


Our belief in the uniqueness of every child drives our commitment to teaching with the whole child in mind. We understand that academic success is just one facet of a well-rounded education.

We encourage curiosity, creativity, and a love for learning, so that students are not just prepared for the challenges of middle and high school but are also equipped with the skills and mindset to succeed in life.


I am eager to witness the incredible growth and accomplishments that each of our students will achieve during their time here. Together we will make this middle school journey a memorable and fulfilling experience for your child. Please reach out to me should you need anything. Welcome to the Aspen Academy Middle School family!

Middle School Math Curriculum, Elementary School Math Curriculum, Singapore Math
Aspen Academy Contributors

Our private school math curriculum is based on the Singapore math standards and enables us to create a top rated math curriculum for our students in Lower School and Middle School. After being on hiatus for a number of years, last month, our mathematics team created a Family Math Night supporting the continued learning of students -- and parents-- while making math even more fun and interactive for our learners.

Ben Sothmann

While election season can bring a storm of (perhaps unwanted) political ads and a mailbox stuffed with postcards, it’s a time of great learning for students in Denver middle schools. Many public and private middle schools have student body leaders or student government, known as Student Civic Organization (SCO) at Aspen Academy. The time for elections has arrived at Aspen Academy!
