School resumes regular schedule April 18

STRIVE Prep schools will follow a normal schedule beginning tomorrow, Thurs, April 18. Local law enforcement have located the woman they were searching for and have stated that there is no longer a threat to our schools and community. Following DPS’s guidance, STRIVE Prep schools and facilities are closed for the remainder of the day and all after-school activities are canceled.

Thank you for your patience during this stressful time. We are thankful for the work of local law enforcement, the DPS safety team and district administrators for putting our schools’ and students’ safety first. These types of events can have both immediate and long-term negative effects on children and families. It’s important to acknowledge children’s feelings during these types of events.

Final round of DPS SchoolChoice is open!

The Denver Public Schools’ SchoolChoice round 2 of enrollment is now open! Browse our website to find out more about our different campuses, or visit our enrollment page.

Because every child deserves a high-level education right where they live.
