Make sure you can access your Parent Portal account

Parents, take time now and save time later by making sure you can log into your parent portal account before registration begins. The parent portal is your main tool for everything you need related to your child’s experience at school so it’s important you can access it easily. Registration begins in late summer and we’ll send you updates as we get closer to the date.

First round of DPS SchoolChoice is closed, get notified when round 2 opens

The Denver Public Schools’ SchoolChoice round 1 window closed February 20. Families who participated in round 1 will receive school placement from DPS in late March. The next opportunity to select your STRIVE Prep school will be during round 2 in April.

Interested in one of our campuses? Would you like to get notified when round 2 opens? Fill out our round 2 form and we will contact you!

Any student who wants or needs to attend a new school for the 2019-20 school year may take part in SchoolChoice. Every year, families may submit one application per student, on which they rank their students’ top school preferences for the following school year. DPS then matches students to schools based on those preferences, as well as school admission priorities and available space.

Internet challenges come in many different forms

Internet challenges come in many different forms; they can be fun (Mannequin Challenge), silly, cause-related (ALS Ice Bucket Challenge) or competitive. Unfortunately, they can also be frightening (Momo Challenge) and encourage kids to demonstrate risky or unsafe behaviors.
