Green Valley Ranch Middle School News


DSST: Green Valley Ranch Families,

Today we have exciting news to share with you. Denver Public Schools recently released their School Performance Framework (SPF) results for all DPS schools. We are excited to share that DSST: Green Valley Ranch is ranked the #3 high school and #6 middle school in Denver:

We are also thrilled to announce that, as a network, DSST Public Schools had another year of extraordinary results on the SPF, running the top high schools and middle schools in Denver




As a network DSST has had a 12 year track record of sustained excellence. This year DSST has 5 of 11 of the top schools in the district, and 5 of the top 6 secondary schools, continuing the trend from the last SPF where DSST schools comprised 5 of the top 6 schools in the city.  Every DSST high school has been given the highest rating, distinguished, in every year the SPF has been produced.


The SPF is a tool that ensures all schools are held accountable to high standards for the students and families they serve.  It uses a comprehensive series of crucial measurements that help to define the performance of each school in Denver including student growth, student proficiency, college readiness, and parent satisfaction and student attendance. The SPF also looks at how well a school serves ALL students regardless of income.


Our goal at DSST is to ensure that each of our students is prepared for college and life, and in doing so our hope is to achieve educational equity for all of our students. While this data is very exciting for our school and our network, we also know we have work to do to better serve all of our students and look forward to further investigating the SPF data to continue to be more effective in improving positive outcomes for students.


Thank you for your partnership – this is also a moment of celebration for you

Familias de DSST: Green Valley Ranch,

Hoy tenemos noticias emocionantes para compartir con ustedes. Las Escuelas Públicas de Denver publicaron recientemente sus resultados del Marco de Desempeño Escolar (SPF) para todas las escuelas de DPS. Estamos emocionados de compartir que DSST: Green Valley Ranch se clasifica como la preparatoria # 3 y la escuela secundaria #6 en Denver.

También estamos encantados de anunciar que, como una red, las Escuelas Públicas de DSST tuvieron otro año de extraordinarios resultados en el SPF, dirigiendo las mejores escuelas secundarias y preparatorias en Denver.




Como una red DSST ha tenido un historial de 12 años de excelencia sostenida. Este año DSST tiene 5 de 11 mejores escuelas en el distrito, y 5 de las 6 mejores escuelas secundarias, continuando con la tendencia de los últimos resultados de SPF donde las escuelas DSST comprendían 5 de las 6 mejores escuelas de la ciudad. Cada preparatoria DSST se le ha dado la calificación más alta, distinguida, en todos los años que el SPF se ha producido.

El SPF es una herramienta que asegura que todas las escuelas son responsables a los estándares altos para los estudiantes y las familias a las que sirven. Utiliza una serie completa de medidas cruciales que ayudan a definir el desempeño de cada escuela en Denver, incluyendo el crecimiento estudiantil, la competencia de los estudiantes, la preparación para la universidad, la satisfacción de los padres y la asistencia de los estudiantes. El SPF también se ve en lo bien que una escuela sirve a TODOS los estudiantes independientemente de sus ingresos.

Nuestra meta en DSST es asegurar que cada uno de nuestros estudiantes esté preparado para la universidad y la vida, y al hacerlo, nuestra esperanza es lograr la equidad educativa para todos nuestros estudiantes. Mientras estos datos son muy emocionantes para nuestra escuela y nuestra red, también sabemos que tenemos trabajo que hacer para servir mejor a todos nuestros estudiantes y esperamos seguir investigando a los datos del SPF para seguir siendo más efectivos para mejorar los resultados positivos para los estudiantes.

 Gracias por su colaboración - este es también un momento de celebración para usted

Dear GVR Community,

We are so excited to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year at DSST: Green Valley Ranch Middle School.  We have made some exciting changes this year in order to improve each student’s experience and results with us, and we are deeply committed to seeing each student succeed. Our theme for this year represents a process we will apply to our work this year, and we hope to inspire our students to apply it to their learning and growth as well: “Seek the Truth. See Yourself. Grow from Strength.” We believe this process will allow us to be the strongest versions of ourselves as we seek out perspectives and truths that will make us better, see our influence and impact on those truths, and then commit to grow from our strengths to tackle challenges.

We know that one of our school’s greatest strengths is our families, and we hope each of you will be a voice in giving us feedback and partnering with us to get better this year so that we can offer the absolute best to our students.

We look forward to an excellent year with all of you.  Should you have any questions, please call the school office at (303) 524-6300.
