The Odyssey School

Philips Elementary School (now The Odyssey School) was built in 1951 at the corner of Montview Blvd. and Monaco St. It was named for Homer S. Philips (1861-1929) who served as principal at Gove Junior High during the last eight years of his thirty-nine years of service to the Denver schools. Philips was a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Infantry 310 th Division and was wounded and gassed during WWI. In 2016, Philips was closed as a neighborhood school and reopened as Odyssey School of Denver, a charter school for K-8th grades. Odyssey is a model Expeditionary Learning school, taking students on project-based expeditions that support in-depth study and comprehension across all disciplines: reading, writing, mathematics and science, as well as the development of core “Habits of a Learner” that transform students into active stewards of their own learning.
