We provide a small, safe, structured environment where all students are known, respected, and valued as individuals of great potential. Our homerooms are capped at 27 students. Performance grouping in math, literacy and language arts allows for smaller class sizes, on average 19 students per class.
Highline Academy participates in Denver Public School’s Choice Process. More information on the process can be found on the DPS web site http://schoolchoice.dpsk12.org/. Highline Academy Charter School’s students are lotteried into the school only once—at the time at which they initially enroll. Thereafter, enrolled students are guaranteed seats providing they claim them during the open period and re-register by the posted deadline each year. Open enrollment takes place in January of each year. If there are more applications than seats available then a wait list will be created.
