Welcome Back!!


Hello Families and Friends,


What an exciting time to be in the field of education! It is a time of change that requires innovation and passion for today’s children to learn and lead. This is why Aspen Public School is such a great choice! It is a unique environment where students not only learn, but they learn to lead. The mission is “Transforming the community by developing exceptional leaders.”


Aspen is a replication of the highly successful Valley Preparatory Academy Charter School. Over the past twelve years, students at Valley Prep have continued to show academic and social/emotional growth. This is attributed to small class sizes, a safe environment, highly qualified staff, The Leader in Me model, and a Restorative Justice Discipline Model.


In year two, Aspen will have grades kindergarten through third and will add an additional grade each year up to eighth grade. Teachers work collaboratively across the grades and across campuses to create rich learning environments for their students. Technology and state adopted instructional materials are used to facilitate student learning.


It is my privilege, after almost twenty years in the classroom, to help lead Aspen Public School as its site director. I look forward to serving the students, their families, the staff, and the surrounding community.


Aspen is located at 1400 E. Saginaw Way by Blackstone & Dakota; it is a beautiful campus with a large green space and three play structures that children can enjoy.

Looking forward to serving you and  your children,

Lisa Taylor
