Logan School For Creative Learning
The Logan School for Creative Learning is a private school in Denver, Colorado enrolling gifted students in grades K through 8. The school focuses on experiential learning as its educational method.
It was started in the 1981 as "The Denver School" by Patricia McKinnell, the current Dean of Students. Since 1999 Logan has been located on Lowry Air Force Base, where it is one of several independent schools on a 1,866-acre (7.55 km2) former military site that is being redeveloped as a mixed-use urban community.
The mission of The Logan School for Creative Learning is to provide an experience-based educational opportunity for gifted children of all backgrounds that allows each child to develop individually to his or her full potential."
Logan was tenderly guided by Andrew Slater, the past head of school, for seven years. Andrew spearheaded the mission to rebuild Logan, as he helped orchestrate a five million dollar renovation. Andrew's effect is still felt by the Logan community today.
Mark Niedermier is the current Head of School. His innovative thinking and creative means of instituting the Logan philosophy are some of his renowned talents. His past positions include Head of School at Friends School of Minnesota and Pacific Northern Academy in Alaska.

“Men and boys are learning all kinds of trades but how to make men of themselves. They learn to make houses; but they are not so well housed, they are not so contented in their houses, as the woodchucks in their holes.”

“Hearing, seeing and understanding each other, humanity from one end of the earth to the other now lives simultaneously, omnipresent like a god thanks to its own creative ability. And, thanks to its victory over space and time, it would now be splendidly united for all time, if it were not confused again and again by that fatal delusion which causes humankind to keep on destroying this grandiose unity and to destroy itself with the same resources which gave it power over the elements.”
—Stefan Zweig (18811942)
“Specialization is a feature of every complex organization, be it social or natural, a school system, garden, book, or mammalian body.”
—Catharine R. Stimpson (b. 1936)
