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 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.

Colorado Succeeds Grant Submission

In this video Mr. Jaquette and Alex team up to talk DGS and explain why an expansion of our excursion program would be a worthy reason to win the Colorado Succeeds Grant.

2017 Solar Eclipse

The start back to school was extra special this year.  We welcomed back all of our DGS Dragons with a wonderful solar eclipse on Monday.  Mr. Leventhal, our wonderful Science teacher provided some great Science Lessons for everyone from our youngest students up to some of our grandparents. Here are a few pictures from the eclipse where we had so much fun viewing together. 


DGS Excursions

At DGS we work hard to achieve and excel in academics, but we also believe in bringing the "real world" into our classrooms. As part of the Field Studies program, teachers connect classroom learning to the real-world through "hands-on, brains-on" lessons. Click here to read all about it!
