    Olander is the first School for Project Based Learning in the state of Colorado - an innovative educational approach that promotes the development of the whole child and arms them with 21st century skills in research collaboration problem solving and presentation of real world topics.

    Our six year old son attends Kindergarten at Olander. We have found the faculty staff and administrators to be outstanding. The education our son receives has exceeded our expectations. The school keeps us informed via weekly Friday newsletters. The school is small enough (400 students) that there is a small school feeling which promotes getting to know students in other grades. The schoool sponsors monthly family nites that our six year old looks forward to as do we. The school faculty truly care about the children and teach to and address and accomodate the individuality of each child. We can not be happier with our son's education at this point.
