Due to graduation, there will be no school for students Friday, May 24. We encourage students, families, and friends to join us at the Denver Coliseum for the Class of 2019 Graduation Ceremony. Doors open at 10:00am and the ceremony begins at 11:00am. Parking is $10 for each car.
Seniors, be sure to arrive to the coliseum by 9:30am and enter through Door #4. Plan ahead for traveling, as there are a lot of detours due to construction. Information can be found on our senior page HERE. Congratulations to the Class of 2019!
The Family Satisfaction Survey (formerly known as the Parent Satisfaction Survey) is an opportunity for families in Denver Public Schools to reflect on their experience with their students’ schools, share feedback, and help our schools improve. This survey is designed to measure how well your child’s school involves families, the quality of family-school relationships, and what you think about the school culture. The honest feedback you are providing will help us make positive changes both at George and across the district, helping DPS provide a better learning environment for your child.
Completing this survey is optional, but encouraged – your answers will remain anonymous and confidential. George’s overall results will be reflected in our School Performance Framework Rating.
Log in to Parent Portal HERE at any point before Friday, June 7 to access your survey. If you opted in for DPS communications via email or text, you should have also received an individual link to your survey.
