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.
Spring Break: March 27th - April 3rd. All students need to return to school on April 4th.

Letter from Lead Partners
Happy New Year from all of us at Denver Green School. We hope you and your family had a joy filled holiday season and that 2017 is off to a great start for you. We want to start off by thanking everyone for always supporting DGS and the investments you all make in our children’s lives. As we turn the page to a new year, it’s also a great time to reflect on all of our great accomplishments in 2016, we have lots to celebrate as we look back.
Here are just a few highlights that we are proud of from 2016:
DGS Action News Team
The DGS Action News team is a team of Middle School students who have been working on telling the stories that make DGS special. We did several episodes last year and this was the final one in Spring 2016.
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!
