The Denver School System
Denver, Colorado, is the capital of the state and has a population of about 705,000. The larger metropolitan area has a population of almost 2.9 million. Denver has been ranked as a Beta world city and was named as the best place to live in the United States in 2016 by U.S. News & World Report. The city has nearly 92,000 students attending almost 200 schools, which are overseen by the Denver Public Schools (DPS) district.
In such a large school system, it isn’t unusual for parents to feel overwhelmed and even a little lost. This problem is especially true when parents have a child with special learning needs or a student who is struggling with a class. Varsity Tutors helps parents connect with professional Denver tutors who can offer support to students of all ages and abilities. Whether your child is struggling with boredom because the school they are in does not provide sufficient options for gifted children, or they are unable to learn via standardized instruction, a professional tutor can make the learning process more fun and productive. Here's a chart showing how some of the largest Denver schools compare to state assessment averages:
Denver Test Scores
Not only do Denver area students need to prepare for the PSAT and SAT, but they also need to be ready for the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) as early as third grade. These exams cover mathematics, English language arts, science, and social studies. Some of these tests are administered through the eleventh grade, while others are spaced intermittently throughout the child’s academic career. If your child is facing one of these exams, working with a personal tutor can help them prepare more effectively.
Even students attending exceptional schools can benefit from working with a personal tutor. Many of Denver’s high schools are among the most highly ranked in the state of Colorado. Below you can see how the top ten high schools in the city compare with others from throughout the state.
