Strategic Plan

We offer a “small town” educational environment, and we are driven by our core values of Relationships, Deep Learning, and Opportunity as we serve our children and our communities.

Manitou Springs School District 14 serves approximately 1400 students from Preschool to 12th Grade who reside in the communities of Manitou Springs, Cascade, Green Mountain Falls, Chipita Park, Crystal Park, and Cedar Heights. We serve “choice” students who come to our district from other locations in El Paso and Teller Counties.

Manitou Springs District 14 is dedicated to:
• Providing a safe and caring learning environment
• Encouraging all students to reach their potential
• Preparing responsible citizens

Responsible citizens contributing with knowledge and integrity to a dynamic world.

Core Values:
Relationships: We value authentic connections grounded in trust and respect between ALL

Deep Learning: Our community practices: dynamic, divergent, critical, and global thinking.
We challenge each learner to master, transfer, and apply the knowledge, skills, and abilities needed for success.

Opportunity: We provide accessible and engaging opportunities for purposeful growth and visionary learning.
