Welcome to Denver Green School
DGS is an Innovation School located in southeast Denver. While DGS is only in its sixth year, we have quite a lot to be proud of. For the past three years, DGS has been identified as both a "high-performing" and "high-growth" school. In addition to 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 our core content curriculum one doesn't have to look far to see all the evidence of our growth-- our students have grown, our staff has grown, our farm has grown and our Field Studies program has grown too. We invite you to explore what makes DGS such a special place.

Internships through Stanley Teacher Prep at Denver Green School
This year, we are excited to announce that DGS has partnered with the Stanley British Teacher Prep program to offer intern positions for candidates interested in becoming teachers. Interns work in an elementary classroom for a full year alongside a mentor teacher, gaining an understanding of project-based, developmentally appropriate education. Interns take on steadily increasing responsibilities as their skills and confidence grow. Through the Stanley Teacher Prep program, interns will earn their Colorado Elementary Education License and have the option of working toward their Master’s Degree.
