GLOBE's History


GLOBE Charter School was opened in 1995, by a group of parents and teachers who wanted a change in education.  In the early years GLOBE was located in a storefront on Wasatch Street in downtown Colorado Springs.  This is where the vision and mission of our school took root as a hands on, interdisciplinary, culturally rich, global education.

The school started as a K-6 then grew to a K-12 school.  In 2001, the school moved to an office building on Bijou Street.  After 9 years as a K-12 school we decided that we could better serve our students as a K-6 school.  After a one year stint on Academy Boulevard, GLOBE Charter school is now in its present location in the Longfellow Elementary School Building on Alpine Place.  We finally have a real school building to call our home.
