Impact Report




Letter from Head of School

As I finish up my fifth year as Head of School, it has been anything but a normal experience. What has remained constant for me throughout this time, however, is the very solid foundation of our community. We like to say and hope wholeheartedly you believe it to be true: You belong here. ISDenver wouldn’t be the same without you. 

This school year was our first “normal year” since COVID-19, and it luckily came with so many delightful moments of us coming together again as a community. Our beloved Parent Teacher Organization rebranded itself with a uniquely ISDenver twist as the Dragon Parent Association. The DPA introduced the Dragon Buddy Program to pair those existing with new families. They also reimagined our signature community events that are intrinsically connected to our mission, vision, and values. 

We experimented with new events and formats, introduced our celebrations of learning and culture, and expanded our art performances and exhibits. We kicked off the school year together as a community with a wonderful Cérémonie d’Ouverture, hearing a moving speech by our inaugural Head of School Award winner, Iben Last. 

The school also had many exciting academic highlights over the last three years as we continued to move forward. The faculty and staff worked hard over several years to complete our International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme application, and we were granted full certification as a  PreK-8 IB World School. We also completed a comprehensive self-study to gain acceptance into the Association of Colorado Independent Schools, becoming fully accredited in January 2023. During that time, we also built a beautiful new state-of-the-art academic building, the Mary Louise Evans Building (MLE), that will serve our students for generations. 

This year’s report explores all of this. It is a glimpse into the essence of ISDenver as a global community equally rooted in tradition as much as we are guided by innovation and pedagogical best practices. - Bob Carignan, Head of SchoolThis year’s report explores all of this. It is a glimpse into the essence of ISDenver as a global community equally rooted in tradition as much as we are guided by innovation and pedagogical best practices. At the heart of the story is you. Our generous donors and volunteers who gave in a way that is meaningful to you and your family and helped enhance the ISDenver experience for all. 

Sit close to your kids.

Letter from Board Chair

I’ll be the first to admit it. In reviewing our last few impact reports, we found a glaring omission. It has nothing to do with  the reporting of our financial health. As we look to tell the whole story of our impact, the missing piece is that of our volunteers. We fixed that. 

In this year’s report, you’ll find our Donor List is now inclusive of our volunteers. On pages 14-15, get to know the 2022-23 Community Engagement Chair of the Dragon Parent Association, and founder  of the Dragon Buddies Program, Christina Brown. 

You’ll also see a few of our signature events featured that not only coalesce our community but also make it one I am proud to be a part of as both a parent and the Chair of the Board. From our Opening Ceremonies and  the time-honored tradition of the ringing of the bell by our 8th graders on the first day of school to our reimagined Night of the Dragon Tales to our end-of-year celebration, Viva el Dragón, I hope you’ll feel deeply connected to the International School of Denver. 

Thank you for giving so generously in a way that was meaningful to you and your family.

I’d like to thank you for your continued support of the International School of Denver and for helping us build a school committed to creating global citizens who are biliterate, self-driven, and compassionate. -Kurt Pletcher, Board ChairKurt Pletcher
