In 1998 DSS opened its West Campus in Lakewood. DSS is a fully accredited 9th-12th-grade high school. Because we seek to remove as many hurdles from our students’ paths as possible, we offer in-school childcare for teen parents, tuition assistance, transportation assistance, and the opportunity to seek dual-enrollment with local community colleges to enrolled students.

Lillian Henshaw - English - Vice Principal
I’m Lillian Hinshaw and I’ll be teaching English literature and creative writing. I grew up in Colorado but have moved around quite a bit, ending up in places like California, Kansas, Chicago, and Perú. I graduated from North Park University with a degree in English, Creative Writing and Secondary Education. Since graduation, I have spent my time working with various organizations that serve orphaned children or youth from hard places in the Denver Metro area. I adore the outdoors, am passionate about justice, storytelling, and education. I am so blessed to be able to join in on the great work happening here at Denver Street School.
