Odyssey Strategy Update:
Following the strategic process that began 18 months ago and included significant community engagement, the Odyssey Board of Directors decided that Odyssey will continue as a K-8 school while creating an opportunity to serve additional students in the K-5 grades. Adding additional students will happen over a five year timeline, adding only in kindergarten and 1st grade for the 2020-2021 school year. At full phase-in (2024-2025), Odyssey will have two classes per grade K-5 and one class per grade 6-8.
Odyssey is a charter school within Denver Public Schools, and as such, any changes will require approval by the DPS Board during our upcoming charter renewal process next year.
Our 2019-2020 Staff!
The Odyssey School of Denver takes a unique and innovative approach to childhood learning and development by educating and supporting our K-8 students through extensive collaboration and exploration by:
engaging with one another as we seek knowledge and adventure in support of life-long problem solving skills;
exploring how lessons relate to and play out in the world beyond the classroom; and
demonstrating our learning through public presentations and portfolios.
Odyssey is a model Expeditionary Learning school, taking our students on project-based expeditions that support in-depth study and comprehension across all disciplines: reading, writing, mathematics and science, as well as the development of core “Habits of a Learner” that transform our students into active stewards of their own learning.

Odyssey is chartered by Denver Public Schools. As such, Odyssey is largely publicly funded. Learn more about enrolling your child.
