Our primary focus with high school students is preparing them for college and career, including acceptance to and success in the colleges they want to attend. Those efforts have repeatedly led to more than 95 percent of our seniors being accepted to two or more colleges, many of them top schools in the nation and in Colorado. One of our DREAMers received nearly a full ride to Yale. These consistent outcomes year over year no doubt contributed to our winning the Colorado Succeeds Prize in 2018 for Transformational Impact in a High School.
We expect a lot of our high school students. That’s because we understand what they’re capable of — even if they haven’t glimpsed their own potential. And for those who are committed and ready to rise to the challenge, the rewards are great. A DCIS education ensures our students are academically prepared, multilingual, proficient thinkers and problem-solvers, collaborative team members, aware of world events and global dynamics, and culturally sensitive.
