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. We are now back to a K-6 school.  In 2001, the school moved to an office building on Bijou Street. In 2009, after a one year stint on Academy Boulevard, GLOBE Charter school moved into its present location in the Longfellow Elementary School Building on Alpine Place.  We finally have a real school building to call our home.
