Welcome to Thomas MacLaren School

Thomas MacLaren School, a K-12th grade charter public school, is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its charter this year! Thomas MacLaren School opened its doors in the fall of 2009. From our humble beginnings renting space in a local church for 77 6th-9th grade students, we are now in our second year on our own campus which accommodates the recent expansion of our school from 6-12 to K-12. Our student body numbers close to 825 students this year. Over the past nine years, MacLaren has racked up impressive awards (School of Distinction, John Irwin Award of Excellence, High School Growth Award) and test scores (Class of 2017 state record-breaking ACT composite average of 29.8) while daily undertaking the task of developing young men and women who are fully human and fully awake to the world. We expect each student to master history, mathematics, science, literature, Latin and English, as well as to gain familiarity with at least one other language and fine arts. We are thrilled to have added an elementary school this past year. Our Lower School (K-5) curriculum, full of rigor and wonder, will prepare these younger students to be able to plumb the depths of the Upper School (6-12) curriculum eagerly and confidently.


We are proud of the fact that the Class of 2017 posted a Colorado state record-breaking average composite score on the ACT of 29.8! The MacLaren community of learners, anchored by our accomplished faculty, creates an environment that encourages each student to become the agent of his or her education.
