About DSST: Conservatory Green High School (1529)


DSST: Conservatory Green High School


DSST: Conservatory Green High School has built on the strong foundation set by our middle school. Close, caring relationships are at the heart of our approach and our school culture intentionally fosters strong relationships. Our six Core Values are central to our program and to our results. The six DSST Core Values are Respect, Responsibility, Integrity, Courage, Curiosity and Doing Your Best. They are the foundation of Conservatory Green and are an active part in the daily lives of each commun ity member. Visitors to our community most often remark that the values are not simply words on walls but are tangibly lived by students, staff, and families at DSST: Conservatory Green. DSST: CG HS also seeks to involve parents and stakeholders through school communication and opportunities for feedback. We prepare students for college, with an emphasis on developing students through liberal arts learning (reading, writing, mathematics, and science). Students succeed through classroom environments that are structured for success with clear academic and behavioral expectations, and flourish in our many extracurricular activities and athletic programs. The Conservatory Green team is proud to bring the DSST promise?to prepare ALL students for success in college and the 21st century?to our families. DSST: Conservatory Green High School is dedicated to the college placement process for each and every student and begins this process as soon as high school begins. The college process will be an ongoing and regular conversation with students, with information and resources infused throughout their high school experience, particularly through DSST's unique Advisory Program and Morning Meetings (offered daily). Multiple visits to colleges will also be part of this plan. The DSST network provides tremendous college placement support to all its campuses, which Conservatory Green High School will benefit from. Each year, students take a base of core classes which include a science, history, English, math, and Spanish course. Additionally, students have the opportunity to choose electives each year. In the 11th and 12th grade, students also have the chance to engage with college coursework through AP classes. DSST is committed to not just offering AP courses, but to ensuring that students will be successful on the AP exams in order to earn college credit. Courses currently offered are AP US History, AP Calculus (AB & BC), AP Stats, AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Physics, and AP Spanish. Our small school setting allows teachers and students to develop and nurture close relationships to create an inclusive, strong community and a culture where every student is valued for both who they are and their successes. PROFESSIONAL INTERNSHIPS In the 11th grade year, all DSST students participate in a 10-week long internship. The intention of the internship program is to give students an opportunity to explore different career paths and apply the learning they?ve done in classes to a real-world job. Each school has an Internship Coordinator, who is responsible for finding organizations and matching them with student interns based on the student's interest. Students have been placed at organizations like the Denver Zoo, Atlas Physical Therapy, Mike Johnston for Colorado, and Teach for America, among others. Internships take place during the school day, in place for an elective for one trimester of the year. Other key features of the DSST program include: Enrollment: Any Denver metro area student may apply for the lottery admissions process. Technology: One-to-one laptop computer program supports instruction in a wireless environment. Academic Rigor: Graduation requirements exceed those of Denver Public Schools and Pre-Collegiate Curriculum Requirements set by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education. Students have the option to take Honors, Advanced Placement, and Concurrent Enrollment courses. Community: A commitment to six core values creates a school culture that fosters academic and personal success. Four days a week, all students and staff come together for a twenty-minute Morning Meeting to start the day. Morning Meetings are led by a staff member or student and most often center on a core value, celebrate our college-going culture, highlight student activities and events, or build culture and community through stories or games. Advisory: Each student is known, cared for, and held accountable for community participation and contributions, academic effort, and achievement through the advisory program. Faculty and staff are responsible for an advisory group of 15 to 16 students, and advisors meet with their advisees twice per week. The advisor also serves as the primary locus for the parent-school relationship.
