All DPS Schools will be Open on Thursday, April 18
Denver Green School will re-open with normal school hours on Thursday April 18th. We want to assure our entire community that our entire staff will be working to increase vigilance and keep students safe. Safety is our #1 priority. We will also be vigilant about spreading love within our DGS community and working hard to support our students during this difficult time. Much of our communication regarding the events last 24 hours must be aligned with the DPS communications office and in coordination with local law enforcement. We will do our best to keep you up to date with any developments. We are truly grateful for all the support we have received from the community and we ask for your continued support moving forward.
For a letter from Superintendent Susana Cordova that she sent out to the entire DPS community please click here.
The Lead Partners will update communication as soon as we are able, but we are excited to welcome everyone back to school with open arms!
Welcome to Denver Green School
Denver Green School (DGS) is an Innovation School located in Southeast Denver. We are in our 9th 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 school 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 seven years, DGS has been identified as both a "high-performing" and "high-growth" school. This year we are particularly proud of getting our highest rating in our history on the School Performance Framework, the state report card for schools. Click here to read more about our SPF success.
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.
