Welcome to the 2011-12 School Year!

A warm welcome to all new and returning DSA families! As you are aware Denver School of the Arts is a college preparatory, arts-focused magnet school. Our community believes that academic and artistic achievement is essential for lifelong positive success for aspiring artists and scholars. At DSA we take pride that our academic performance continues to improve and we celebrate the growth of our students in state CSAP tests, ACT exam scores, the AP Pass Rate and the astonishing $9,540,567.00 in scholarship and grant that was collected by our graduating class in 2011. We also take equal pride in the artistic abilities of our students and the remarkable shows they produce. We hope that you will be able to attend many of these performances throughout the school year.

It is with tremendous enthusiasm passion, and commitment that I begin another year serving this fabulous community. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me. For those of you who are familiar with DSA you are keenly aware of the special community we have. To those families who are in the stage of exploration we welcome you to explore our many offerings and the DSA culture.
