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.

Session Summaries by Tutors

Tutoring review by Madison in Denver, CO
Since he seemed to be struggling with long-term retention, the student and I devised a new study plan for his vocabulary. We plan to review 15 new words each week, and he will study for a quiz during the week that I will administer at each session. Since he is a visual learner, it seems important for him to spend more time memorizing and looking at the words on his own in order for him to really retain their meaning.

Tutoring review by Harrison in Denver, CO
Today we focused again on reading comprehension and grammar. The grammar section is particularly difficult -- at least these sets of questions were -- but the student handled them well. He is also doing well in reading comprehension. Just to make sure he is not falling behind, I assigned some math to complete over the week. He has his PSAT next week.

The student has a test on Monday that we prepared for, and we worked on some parametric equations problems involving an archer trying to hit a target. She made some good progress, and I will work with her Sunday some more to make sure she's in good shape for the test.

The student and I worked on math again. This time, I timed her. She did a whole section of math in 20 minute intervals. We graded and talked about them in between. She took home 7 sections of science. She is going to do one per night until we meet again.

Tutoring review by Kim in Denver, CO
For our final Session before the exam, the student wanted to review usage and grammar. We did multiple question sets and reviewed the "tricky words" section of the book. I timed him on the various parts of the exam, he did quite well overall. We even discussed various strategies to use throughout the exam. It was a pleasure to work with him.
