Three Campuses

We understand that every student has unique learning needs. We have three campuses with an intentional 10 to 1 student to teacher ratio to walk with our students in their learning.

Trauma Informed Educators

Trauma has been described as a snake wrapped around us squeezing the air out of us. 100% of our staff has been through Trauma Informed Training.


Every student at DSS has a mentor to walk with them through the hard times.


Our students meet four times a week with their teacher/advocate. These meetings are the foundation of life change. #SomeoneCaresSoICare

10,000 Conversations

Our school day is built to allow our students and staff to have 10,000 little conversations. #LIFE comes from relationships. 


Over 22 students currently enrolled in local area colleges.

Future Graduates

We are looking at nearly twenty graduates for the 2019 school year.

30+ Years

DSS has been bringing #LIFE to Denver’s At-risk youth longer than most of our teachers have been alive. Let that sink in… 30+ years of life change…
