Welcome to Denver Green School

DGS is an Innovation School located in Southeast Denver. We are now in our 7th year, and while that means we have been around a little while now, we still feel like we have so much growing and learning to do. That is good, because we are a learning institution after all. Yet, in our short existence, we do have quite a lot to be proud of: we are a National Green Ribbon School award winner and for the past four years, DGS has been identified as both a "high-performing" and "high-growth" school.

In addition to our academic success, we are proud of our "hands-on, brains-on" approach to learning where students get outside the classroom and bring learning to life. DGS is a school that focuses on integrating our sustainability curriculum with core content standards and you don't have to look far to see all the evidence of our success. We invite you to explore what makes DGS such a special place.


Sandy Stewart is our HERO!

Sandy Stewart was recently recognized by ABC 7 for being an Everyday Hero.  DGS appreciates all of Sandy's hard work and we are so grateful for her many diverse contributions to our school community.  Click here to see Sandy's story.

                                              We Rally Behind Our Families

Last week, two of our students unexpectedly lost their father due to a sudden illness and the DGS community is working to support them in any way possible. What makes DGS special is our community and how we rally behind each other and this is indeed one of those times. The Mohamed family arrived to the United States just 4 months ago after years of waiting for a green card application to be approved. Their father, Ghassan, leaves behind 4 children all under 7 years old and his wife Maryam. The DGS staff started fundraising last week and we are now passing this onto the general community. You can find the link to the fundraising page here. If you are able to support the Mohammed Family it will be greatly appreciated. 


2017 Community Day Was a Hit!

Thank you to everyone who was able to make it to the Annual DGS Community Day, you helped make our day great!
