Our goal is to provide every child in Denver with rigorous, enriching educational opportunities from preschool through high school graduation. DPS is comprised of 162 schools, including traditional, magnet, charter and pathways schools, with a current total enrollment of 81,438 students.

Under the leadership of Superintendent Tom Boasberg and guided by the tenets of The Denver Plan, DPS has become the fastest-growing large school district in Colorado in terms of enrollment and student academic growth. DPS is committed to establishing Denver as a national leader in student achievement, high school graduation, and college and career readiness.

Widely recognized today as one of the best urban school systems in the country, Denver Public Schools serves the residents of the City and County of Denver, Colorado.
While its roots can be traced to 1859, when the city was founded, the district was officially created in 1902 when voters approved a constitutional amendment that created the City and County of Denver. The same constitutional amendment consolidated five school districts into today's School District No. 1.
