Iver C. Ranum Middle School is a public middle school in Adams County School District 50 near Westminster, Colorado. The school began in 1961 as Iver C. Ranum High School, named in honor of Iver Ranum, Superintendent of Adams County School District 50 from 1950 to 1975. The last class of Ranum High School graduated on May 8, 2010. The high school has been replaced by the newly built Westminster High School, 6933 Raleigh Street, Westminster, Colorado.
The following year Clear Lake Middle School moved its site operations to Ranum, where they continue as Iver C. Ranum Middle School, home of the Knights. The new school colors are purple and black with a hint of yellow to meld the Clear Lake Cougars of yellow and black with the new Ranum Knights mascot. The legacy of Iver Ranum continues to serve a diverse population of District 50 youth. Years of tradition live on in the history of the school and the children of past high school graduates, who now attend the middle school.
Iver C. Ranum Middle School invites parents, guardians and community members to visit us to enjoy our many school events.
Our school was recently awarded a NGSI grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Below is a presentation summarizing the key features of the grant work and how it will support student learning at Ranum.
