Welcome to Denver Green School
DGS is an Innovation School located in Southeast Denver. We are now in our 8th 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 six 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.
