IB-MYP @ SLHS-Standley Lake High School is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School offering both the IB Middle Years Program (MYP) and the IB Diploma Program.  While our diploma program serves a cohort of 11th and 12 graders, the Middle Years Program serves all of our students, inclusive of all interests and academic abilities. 

This class incorporates the MYP framework to help our students become active, compassionate learners.  By making practical connections between what they learn in this course and the real world, we can help them become responsible participants in local, national, and global communities.  

For more information on the MYP program and its framework, please consult the IB page on our website.

Visiting SLHS and School Safety Visitors during school hours should check in and out at the Security desk or main office.  We will be meeting with all students and staff the first two weeks of school to go over our safety and security protocols.  Please talk with your student about the security measures in our school. Although we have safety plans in place, we cannot rely on these measures alone.  The best way to keep our school safe is to communicate concerns to school administrators and security staff. If you “See Something, Say Something,” cannot be stressed enough.  Thank you for your help in following our school safety guidelines.

Safe to Tell

SLHS and Jeffco encourage students and families to utilize Colorado Safe2Tell to report safety concerns.  The following is from Colorado Safe2Tell: Safe2Tell Colorado wants every student to know - telling isn't "snitching.” Telling is when you need to keep yourself or someone you know safe from threats, harmful behaviors or dangerous situations. All student IDs have the Safe2Tell contact information on the back of the ID.  We also encourage students to reach out to a trusted adult in the school when needed.  Thank you for your cooperation and support!

We look forward to the planning process for our bond improvements in September of 2020. Construction projects will extend into 2023.
