About DSST: Conservatory Green Middle School (2218)


DSST: Conservatory Green Middle School


Located in the Northfield community, DSST: Conservatory Green Middle School serves grades 6-8. DSST: Conservatory Green is a school where students can belong and be themselves. Close and caring relationships are at the heart of our approach and our school culture intentionally fosters strong relationships. We prepare students for college, with an emphasis on developing students through liberal arts learning (reading, writing, mathematics, and science). Students succeed through classroom environm ents that are structured for success with clear academic and behavioral expectations, and flourish in our many extracurricular activities and athletic programs. Ultimately our goal is to ensure that our students are prepared for college, career and beyond OUR PROGRAM: Each year, students take a base of core classes, which include English Language Arts, social studies, math, and a science course. Additionally, students have the opportunity to choose electives each year. We believe that by holding our students to high expectations and through offering them high support, they will thrive academically. 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 who they are and their successes. DSST: Conservatory MS also seeks to involve families and stakeholders through school communication and opportunities for feedback. SPORTS & ACTIVITIES: DSST is committed to educating our students holistically through a strong academic program, along with numerous opportunities to engage in before and after-school programming, including sports, enrichments, and clubs. Our athletics program fosters participation and enjoyment of interscholastic team competition, as well as non-competitive fitness activities. The program emphasizes high level skill and strategies, teamwork, good sportsmanship, school spirit, character building and fun. The goal is to provide each student with a sense of affiliation, motivation, and accomplishment by balancing a challenging experience with support and encouragement. The Student Experience is a priority for us at CGMS. We want students to feel like they belong and can make connections with others that have similar interests. Students also have the opportunity to participate in before-school clubs and after-school enrichments. Clubs and enrichments reflect student interests and provide the opportunity to foster passions outside of the classroom. In an effort to continue to build a robust club and enrichment program, CGMS has partnered with community members, such as The Conflict Center, to provide conflict-resolving skills to students. CGMS is also one of the very few middle schools in Denver to offer a Speech/Debate program and a band program that offers an array of instruments and personalized instruction. The athletic, extracurricular , and club programs are an integral part of DSST's curriculum and emphasizes living the school's Core Values as well as building toward our graduate profile vision. 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. 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 family-school relationship.
