A community-driven and achievement-oriented high school, Arvada West offers comprehensive college prep, career exploration, and workforce development for young adults. Our population of nearly 1800 students ranges from highly-academic AP students to the Challenge Program, which is embraced by both students and staff. As our population continues to diversify, the AWest staff works to support students as a community of learners who think critically about the world around them and develop the college- and career-ready skills necessary to find success in a collaborative, technology-driven world.
Arvada West's history and traditions are now carried on in our state of the art instructional facility featuring 268,000 square feet on a 23-acre campus. The newest education technology innovations that enhance teacher instruction and support student learning are available. We have past winners of the National Merit Scholarship Program, the Boettcher Foundation Scholarship competition, Daniels Fund Scholars, appointments to military academies and acceptance to the nation's most highly selective universities. We're proud of our core academic programs and our comprehensive course offerings in fine arts, performing arts, business and career education, and many other areas.
