I used to like it, but we got a new principal and now we have a lot of really stupid policies such as teachers of an after school activity must escort their students out. We are high schoolers for crying out loud! The new office staff are also pretty rude to the students. I liked it the last few years, ...  Read more

I currently attend Denver Center for International Studies, I think the school is amazing and that they offer so much to the students based off their interests and needs. The teachers are overly supportive and care about the students very deeply. Thanks DCIS.

My school is AMAZING!!!!! The teachers are so nice and I feel comfortable around even the high schoolers (being in 6th grade i was nervous about going to school with them) and the only flaw is the Study skills class (advisement) it is a joke... I am literally bored to tears learning nothing in that ...  Read more

I don't like this school because the staff and administration don't care or listen to what the students have to say. It may get some good test scores but it doesn't compare that the teachers don't really care as much as needed to get the right education. There aren't a lot of class options and aren't ...  Read more

DCIS: a good school for self-motivated students. The staff, block schedule and diverse classmates offer a student countless opportunities to engage in their own growth and education. It is up to the student to seize or disregard those opportunities. My son entered DCIS HS in 2009 from a 99% white affluent ...  Read more

Can only comment on the middle school (3 years experience) but DCIS has been a big disappointment. Weak principal, too many low performing teachers and a student culture that isn't intellectually oriented. Nice, non-violent kids attend DCIS but they segregate by race/ethnic group, with administration's ...  Read more

I was a student at this school, and was sent to this school with many letters of recommendation. I was never the student who ditched class or gave the teachers problem but I feel that my appearance at the time singled me out from the other students and gave the faculty a set impression about me. I at ...  Read more

My son is adopted from social services and had behavioral issues. But DCIS created a good social network for him to the point of not wanting to miss one day of school. He is pushed at home to speak a foreign language and to study. When he was doing badly the teachers communicated with me and we came ...  Read more

This school might be good if your 6th grader is ready for college but mine isn't, she is 12 not 18 years old. The teachers do not care if their students have missing assignments, fail a test and the principal does not hold the teachers accountable for doing anything to help. When I asked teachers what ...  Read more

My daughter, now in 9th grade has been at DCIS for the past 3 years. She and I both love the school. The quality of education is amazing and I'm so pleased with the curriculum and the fact that all the teachers are so committed to ensuring that the students not only learn, but have a clear understanding ...  Read more
