GW is a great school that saved my child. The teachers buily relationships with him and he succeeded. I am thankful that the administration cared as well as the teachers. I was impressed by the interventions available from GW and the Advanced Placement choices. GW had more Advanced placement classes than the two closet schools and the scores of the children were great.
George Washington has the strongest academic program in the Denver Public Schools. Its International Baccalaureate program and AP programs in particular attract many students. Its size, at about 1,600 students, is manageable, and students can readily participate in music, art, sports, and other activities. Parents are very involved through the International Baccalaureate Parent Group.
The IB program at this school is a really great program to put your child in. It will make the student bring out their best.
George Washingon is a wonderful school. I graduated in 2003, and I still miss it. I always felt like I belonged and was able to be involved every different spectrum from Cheerleading to Drama productions. Every child can feel welcome at this school. It is wonderful. I never felt like there was any predjedice in this school, and I never felt like I wasn't safe. This was the perfect school for me!
GW is a good school. Yet there are some pros and cons about it. The only bad thing I find about George is that many students are descriminative against each other. As 50% of its students are African American, many other cultures are excluded in social terminoligy. Otherwise, George Washington will cetrainly provide a good education for students. Its IB program is extremly excellent. I believe that George Washington is the only DPS high school that puts something new into a students head. I recomend George Washington High School, but still hope that the amount of pregadism decreases at this school.
