Learn & Grow


Understanding that family comes first, The Lakes at Centerra features a world-class Pre-K – 8th grade innovative school that residents can walk and bike to.

A Time to Flourish

The High Plains School features a unique S.T.E.A.M. curriculum, which integrates a multifaceted range of concepts including science, technology, engineering, art and math. Students are challenged to apply their knowledge to real life situations using a meaningful, problem-based learning approach.

This unique program works to develop critical thinking skills, local and global awareness, and communication and collaborative skills as well as character traits such as perseverance, responsibility and citizenship.

Providing a seamless transition between the elementary and middle school grades, the High Plains School supports students and families at every stage through ongoing collaboration, development of long-term relationships, and modeling and mentoring opportunities that encourage family involvement.

Dedication to Sustainability

Leveraging its proximity to the High Plains Environmental Center (HPEC), the High Plains School has direct access to the HPEC and its outdoor classrooms, greenhouses, natural learning environments and year-round activities.

This community partnership paired with the school’s well-rounded curriculum provides students with an understanding of the importance of sustainability at a young age, benefiting our community for years to come.

Right at Home

The Lakes at Centerra neighborhood was designed to closely link together the High Plains School and the HPEC, providing students with safe and enjoyable walking and biking routes to and from school.

The 13.4-acre school site will also include a public multi-use playfield for soccer and football, as well as a softball/baseball practice field also accessible to the community.
