Every day we make a difference for our students

Our vision is clear: to ensure Every Learner Thrives. We are passionate about having a meaningful impact and know the work we do today is building a better tomorrow. For us, it’s more than just a job. It’s a commitment to our kids and it drives us.

DPS is redefining public education across the nation, starting right here in Denver.

With the community behind us and the Denver Plan guiding the way, we share a sense of urgency in our efforts to improve the lives of our students now. Our forward-thinking culture has led to increased student success and we continue to embrace innovation to make a real impact for the future.

Our diversity is a community treasure, and equity is at the core of our mission.

We’re dedicated to building a culture that embraces the unique identity and potential of every child. Where we come from, the languages we speak, our race, ethnicity and identity are all assets that we celebrate and nurture in each of our kids and embrace in our teams. What makes each of us unique is also what will make DPS the best place for all of Denver’s kids.

At DPS, we are all in it together – working as a team for our students’ success.

Each of us has a role to play, and we know it’s only through teamwork, collaboration and our shared commitment that we can truly achieve our goals. Students First, Integrity, Equity, Collaboration, Accountability and Fun – these are our Shared Core Values, guiding our work and how we work together. Our kids need all of us, and using our values-based culture as a foundation, we continue growing stronger together, for them.



We are a learning organization, committed to continuous growth and open to endless opportunities.

Just as our mission is to help our students learn and grow, we want the same for every member of our team. With ongoing feedback, coaching and support, along with opportunities for professional and personal growth, our team members are inspired, challenged and empowered to find their own pathway to success in DPS.
