DPS believes that those closest to students – families and school leaders – know what’s best for their students academically, socially and emotionally, so we offer diverse school models that promote school empowerment and family choice to meet diverse needs. Learn more about our school autonomy model and our family choice model.
Our family of schools is similar to an actual family, where different members are part of one cohesive unit but have different roles as well as different strengths. All DPS schools – regardless of model type – are equally part of our family of schools and are equally held accountable to performance standards, while also meeting different needs, taking different approaches, and having various forms of flexibility. Additionally, DPS collaborates with and supports every school in this family to ensure their voices are heard and considered. Learn about our collaboration structures.
The table below lists the different types of schools that make up the DPS family of schools. Questions? Contact the Portfolio Management Team for more information.
