A Joyful School

The Green School Model, with a focus on sustainability, engagement and relevance has many components built into our program that make school a joyful place. While that is true, we continue to prioritize  our time and resources to ensure students are developing their voice and enjoying their time here. For example, we do not have uniforms. We also have students perform regularly at our school to share their talents. If that isn't enough, our Friday Celebrations are a great time for our community to come together and celebrate a hard week of work. Check out some of our videos to see what is possible for the new Middle School in Northfield next year!

The Denver Green School middle school often incorporates fun contests into our Friday Celebrations. This one turned out to be epic!

Ma'Kye, Markee, Christian and Mr. Jaquette share their plans for success. Izaiah and Ma'Kye drop the beats.

On October 25th, the DGS Middle School devoted our Demonstration Night to our year long "Path to Success" project. We enjoyed a cookout thanks to a record setting warm fall evening, were treated to delightful speeches from our students and then broke into small groups, to hear each student share their Path to Success Essay.

This video was 2nd place in last year’s video competition. Seemed like a slam dunk win to us!
