When we build schools for our kids

Families in Adams 14,


My name is Mamie Howard, I am a mom, an educator and the hopeful principal of the proposed University Prep here in Commerce City. Over the past seven months, I had the honor and privilege of working alongside a group of families in Adams 14 to co-design a new school - a school that their kids and my own kids can go to starting in fall 2022 here in our community, Commerce City. I have spent the last year getting to know families here in Adams 14, along with their hopes and dreams for their kids and I can say with confidence, we are building a proposed, new school that is ready to help all kids (including my own) be the brightest versions of themselves.
