DENVER PUBLIC SCHOOLS
DEPENDS ON ALL OF US.

We are a catalyst for change in Denver Public Schools

As the strategic fundraising partner for DPS, we work together to find and fund the highest impact investments.

We engage our community, educators and DPS to accelerate progress and we help to find the most impactful ways to empower teachers, fuel engaged learning, and support students and their families.

Statistics & Research

Academic Growth

For 8 years in a row, Denver Public Schools students posted stronger academic growth than the rest of the state per the Colorado Measures of Academic Progress.

Academic Gap

Academic gaps between DPS students and their Colorado classmates have nearly closed. In 2005, the gap was 25 points in literacy and 22 points in math. As of 2018, there is a three- point literacy gap and two- point math gap.

Language Arts

DPS students of color gained seven points in English language arts proficiency over the past three years and DPS English language learners now significantly outperform their peers statewide.
