The Black Education Impact Conference, an event designed to bring attention to Colorado’s educational culture gap and to encourage group and individual ownership of our youth’s education and development. Colorado youth from a variety of high schools including Rangeview, were in attendance, as well as parents and community members.
The conference provided an opportunity for interaction and discussion to:
If you have some slightly used Rangeview Gear or even new Rangeview Gear that you would like to donate to High Tower High School, please bring to Rm. 245B, Mrs. Walsh. We would like to make a personal connection with this high school that was devastated by Hurricane Harvey and let them know that Raiders are always willing to help. We are still collecting school supplies and/or Cash for Hightower through next Wednesday.
Thanks for being such amazing RAIDERS!

Students are learning about urbanization and city planning, including how cities impact the environment, and the desirability of various city buildings and open spaces. Students are also learning about spatial awareness as well as concepts such as infill , urban sprawl, and sustainability. By creating these models, students can explore many real-world problems such as transportation, waste disposal, energy generation and energy alternatives, and the balance between recreation spaces, commercial districts, and residential zones.
