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.


Registration for 2019-2020 school year will be done via Online Registration and the window is NOW open. To do so, you must have a Parent Portal account prior to registering, if you don’t have a parent portal account you can create one by clicking here.
Please note: ALL families will need to have a parent portal account to register and ALL registrations will be online.

These steps are important to know for successful registration:

  1. ALL STUDENTS will have to register before school starts, even if you were enrolled at DGS the previous year. 

  2. Once you complete registration online, the final step takes place here at DGS and is really simple and quick.
    EVERY FAMILY must provide current proof of address under Guardians name (stating service address) in person at the school to complete registration. 

  3. Once you complete these steps, you are done and ready to begin the school year.

  4. If you are not registered, you will not be able to start the school year until registration is complete. NO registration will be taking place on the first day of school.

    At registration, we will have staff on hand to assist you and we will also have computers available to get registered. Below are the DGS registration dates and times. Please note that we will be unable to register students outside of these dates, so please plan accordingly.

    July 30th  11:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.

    July 31st  9:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.

    ** Last Chance: August 8th 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m.**
