At Denver Apartments, we understand the importance of education in today's society. Parents want nothing more than to place their children in schools where they know their children will be in good hands. Especially when moving to a new area, parents want to make sure that there are appropriate schools nearby. Researching specific needs and wants for their children's education is the first step that any moving parent should take. A simple phone call to the school's district will answer most of your questions, but not all. Some cases may require a visit to a counselor who is more than willing to help a parent find the right education and school for their kids. The internet is also a very useful source for information regarding ANYTHING related to your child's education. Here is a link to the Denver Public Schools website.

About Denver Public Schools

Evidenced by test scores on the rise and escalating community support, Denver Public Schools is boosting learning, sparking enthusiasm for knowledge and creating more life-long learners among its almost 73,000 students.

The district's ambitious literacy program strongly spotlights reading and writing in elementary schools, and there are organized efforts to improve reading and writing skills at the middle and high schools for struggling sixth- through tenth-grade students. The program's innovative Million Words Campaign challenges students to read 1,000,000 words each year. That's about 25 chapter books per year for a fifth-grader or about four books per day for a first-grader.

A new rigor in math instruction is bringing focus and consistent direction to math classrooms throughout the district. More eighth-grade students than ever before are completing algebra, and highly-mobile students who transfer from school to school within the same year will find consistency in mathematics instruction, making it easier to keep learning.

Colorado Governor Bill Owens has credited Denver Public Schools for showing that real improvement is possible in a major urban school district. Denver Public Schools is the only Colorado school district to earn the Governor's Award for Distinguished Improvement for two consecutive years.

Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper has pledged powerful and clear support, and the community's approval in 2003 of a $310 million bond and a $20 million mill levy broadens momentum and renews ties with the many neighborhoods that comprise the vibrant, diverse city of Denver. The new money is building and repairing schools, hiring art and music teachers in every elementary school, revitalizing neighborhood schools, purchasing new textbooks, reforming middle and high schools, and expanding all-day kindergarten and early childhood education classes.

Around the schools and in the community, the district goals are clear - setting high expectations for students, parents, teachers, principals and all other Denver Public Schools staff and the community we serve; improving the performance of all students; and closing the gap between better and poorer performing students. It is the district's obligation to cherish the renewed optimism and build on fresh success.
