Discover Highline Academy!
Highline Academy participates in the Denver Public Schools (DPS) SchoolChoice process. The 2018-19 School Choice lottery starts on February 1st and ends on February 28th.
DPS believes all students should have the same access to quality schools, regardless of their background or where they live in Denver. Any DPS student who wants to attend a school other than their automatically assigned neighborhood school can take part in SchoolChoice. (To determine your neighborhood school, go to schoolfinder.dpsk12.org).
Families submit one SchoolChoice form per student, on which they rank their students’ top five school preferences. DPS then matches students to schools based on those preferences, as well as school admission priorities and available space.
To make it more convenient for families to learn about their school options, DPS is holding five regional school expos rather than one large district-wide expo, as we have in the past. Families can:
- Visit with school leaders from elementary, middle and high schools in the area.
- Find out which schools might be a good fit for their student.
- Learn more about the SchoolChoice process, which takes place Feb. 1-28, 2018.
Southeast Regional Expo:
6 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 23
George Washington High School
655 S. Monaco Pkwy.
Prospective students (in the 5th grade and higher) are invited to shadow our student ambassadors on Tuesday and Thursdays from 7:50am -3:30pm starting in October. Shadow dates will fill up fast! Please email Heather Knight, the Director of Operations, at firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate a day to meet your student’s schedule.
We offer prospective parents the opportunity to tour Highline while classes are in session. All tours begin at 9am with a short introduction from our administrative team and will follow with small group tours focusing on either Elementary or Middle School.
