Speech and debate is a highly competitive, technical, and creative activity that requires students to show confidence in their voice, resilience and originality in their character, and dedication to their passions in order to succeed. These are qualities the STRIVE Prep – RISE and STRIVE Prep – SMART Speech and Debate team members possess. Being nationally ranked and recognized as two of the top 10 teams in the state of Colorado, these teams and students have countless trophies, ribbons, and plaques under their belts which are sure to be motivation boosters. Yet, These students got more than just the national recognition and awards they bargained for when they joined the activity. It has given them the necessary life skills and tools to be successful academically and socially. From confidence building to interview prepping, this program has been a game-changer for these STRIVE Prep students. 

Here their full stories and all of the amazing things they had to say about their Speech and Debate programs here!

We are excited to announce Tricia Noyola as our new Chief Executive Officer, effective November 2, 2022! 

Originally, as part of the merger with Rocky Mountain Prep announced in August, Tricia was going to take the lead as CEO beginning July 2023. But as we started working through the integration process this year, we realized that having her lead as CEO sooner rather than later would allow for better integration of our two networks.

Our students, staff, and community will be best served this year by having a clear vision and consistent leadership from Tricia. Families can expect things to remain the same for the remainder of the school year; teachers, schools, sports, and other programs and services are not impacted as a result of the CEO change for the current school year. 

We are excited that Tricia is willing to take on this role earlier. Tricia knows from her own lived experience the transformative power of education for all students. Growing up in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas, she was mentored by family, friends, and educators to reach her full potential. Thanks to her strong leadership, Rocky Mountain Prep is a great place for teachers to work and for students to learn. RMP schools have all been given a Green rating by the Colorado Department of Education and, due to its high performance, RMP recently received a $4.5 million grant from philanthropist MacKenzie Scott

As we announced in August, by uniting with Rocky Mountain Prep, STRIVE Prep will gain four high-performing ECE to 5th-grade elementary schools, currently operated by Rocky Mountain Prep. This will be a great addition to STRIVE Prep schools which next year will include: five elementary schools, six middle schools, and two high schools in the Denver metro area.

Benefits of uniting into one school system:

Having Tricia lead both organizations going forward will allow us to realize the benefits of the merger more quickly. 

Tricia is eager to better get to know you and our entire STRIVE Prep community. In the coming weeks, Tricia and the team will be scheduling school meetings for families. That information will be communicated to you once we have it so stay tuned. 

We are confident you will soon see the benefits of a unified network. By bringing our two organizations together sooner, we will be able to more effectively deliver a high-performing early childhood to 12th-grade educational pathway for families.

Estimadas familias de STRIVE Prep,

¡Nos complace anunciar a Tricia Noyola como nuestra nueva Directora Ejecutiva, efectivo el 2 de noviembre de 2022!

Originalmente, como parte de la fusión con Rocky Mountain Prep anunciada en agosto, Tricia iba a asumir el liderazgo como directora ejecutiva a partir de julio de 2023, pero a medida que comenzamos a trabajar en el proceso de integración este año, nos dimos cuenta de que tenerla como directora ejecutiva antes de lo que pensábamos permitiría una mejor integración de nuestras dos redes escolares.

Nuestros estudiantes, el personal y la comunidad recibirán un mejor servicio este año al tener una visión clara y un liderazgo constante de parte de Tricia. Las familias pueden esperar que las cosas permanezcan igual por el resto del año escolar; los maestros, las escuelas, los deportes y otros programas y servicios no se verán afectados como resultado del cambio de directora ejecutiva para el año escolar actual.

Estamos emocionados de que Tricia esté dispuesta a asumir este papel antes. Tricia conoce por su propia experiencia vivida el poder transformador de la educación para todos los estudiantes. Al crecer en el Valle del Río Grande en el sur de Texas, su familia, amigos y educadores la guiaron para alcanzar su máximo potencial. Gracias a su fuerte liderazgo, Rocky Mountain Prep es un excelente lugar para que los maestros trabajen y los estudiantes aprendan. Todas las escuelas de RMP han recibido una calificación Verde del Departamento de Educación de Colorado y, debido a su alto rendimiento, RMP recibió recientemente una subvención de $4.5 millones de dólares de la filántropa MacKenzie Scott.

Como anunciamos en agosto, al unirse con Rocky Mountain Prep, STRIVE Prep obtendrá cuatro escuelas primarias de alto rendimiento de ECE a 5º grado, actualmente operadas por Rocky Mountain Prep. Esta será una gran incorporación a las escuelas STRIVE Prep, que el próximo año incluirán: cinco escuelas primarias, seis secundarias y dos preparatorias en el área metropolitana de Denver.

Beneficios de unirse en un solo sistema escolar:

Tener a Tricia al frente de ambas organizaciones en el futuro nos permitirá obtener los beneficios de la fusión con mayor rapidez.

Tricia está emocionada de conocerlos mejor a ustedes y a toda nuestra comunidad de STRIVE Prep. En las próximas semanas, Tricia y el equipo programarán reuniones escolares para las familias. Esa información se comunicará una vez que la tengamos, así que permanezca atento.

Estamos seguros de que pronto verá los beneficios de una red unificada. Al unir a nuestras dos organizaciones antes, podremos ofrecer de manera más efectiva un camino educativo de alto rendimiento desde la primera infancia hasta el 12º grado para las familias.

Tómese un momento para conocer a Tricia en este video.
