Students Usher in New Era of Learning Experiences Reimagined for the 21st Century
Denver – To kick off College and Career Readiness Month, on Oct. 4, Denver Public Schools (DPS) students are showcasing innovative and interactive experiences that are providing them with the 21st-century skills needed for success after high school. To demonstrate this new generation of education, students are inviting members of the media to visit three innovative high school classrooms: a graphic design class, a video game design class and a tech apps class where students earn college credits.
In addition to the interactive student event, throughout the month of October, DPS is encouraging students to take advantage of the various programs available to them to help them reach their dreams. These programs include early college, which allows students to simultaneously earn a high school diploma and associate’s degree for free. In addition, students can enroll in the new CareerResidency Youth Apprenticeship Program, which combines the traditional high school classroom learning with on-the-job experience and gives students access to high-opportunity careers in top fields.
Student interview opportunities in English and Spanish will be available.
