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-7 school, with 8th grade coming in the 2024-25 school year..  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 to the Longfellow Elementary School Building on Alpine Place. In 2020 the School moved to it's present location at 5759 Academy.
