I love Denison Montessori. Both my kids attend and I can't imagine there are better teachers to be found anywhere in Denver. The Principal was new last year and has brought new life and energy to the school. It is truly the best Montessori program in Denver Public School!
Everything about this school is outstanding ! The teachers, office staff, Principal, AP, etc.... are all amazing, welcoming, and supportive. I am thrilled to have both my kids at Denison!
The Teachers are wonderful they are knowledgeable and great with kids and parents. Principal and the main secretary are not friendly and disorganized. Love the two secretary upfront always friendly and know all students and parents
I heard this was a great school. Unfortunately, the administration is why I pulled my kids out. It's too bad because there are some awesome teachers.
Excellent school!! The rating does not do the school justice when you look at the diversity, both cultural and economic, that this school serves. Teachers are the most highly trained in the district, as they must have state as well as Montesorri credentials. My daughter is thriving in the loving environment created by Denison's staff. Most importantly, these children are learning to think outside the box, not just teaching to the test. DPS could learn a lot about sucess if they payed more attention to the inner workings of schools like Denison!!
This is the first year for my child and she has excelled in her math skills. She has improved tremendously in her reading skills. I am very happy with this years output in her growth in education. Denison has been good for her. I will continue to push and monitor the administration to be the best it can be for all children and their education.
This school is great. My daughter has achived more than she would have in an average dps school. The classes are not over crouded and she gets alot of one on one help.Everyone here is a familly the older kids look out and help the younger kids. my daughter is in 3rd grade and not only is learning her curriculum but she is learning about other amazing stuff as well. The y have been learning about france and to top of the lesson they turned the classroom into france, the other classrooms came in to enjoy delicasies from france that encluded snails , bread and cheese !
My children have attended Denison for 4 years and I couldn't be more pleased with the school. My children have blossomed and excel. The Montessori method may not fit all children but I would encourage parents to at least learn about it. This school is small enough where you feel part of a family in a sense which is also a nice feeling to have for a place you leave your kids.
Denison is awesome! 2 of my daughter have been there for the last three years and they are excelling in every aspect. The curiculum id the best I have seen so far, my daughter never feel pressured they just love to do what they do it is a very relaxing enviorment and because of that they have learned at an exceptionl speed. I could not be happier with Denison, I would recommend it to anyone!
Test scores and ratings don't do justice to the early education opportunities at Denison. The primary classes (age 3 through Kindergarten) are amazing and the teachers are all wonderful. Our daughter received an outstanding education during these grades.
We have two children at this school, one has been here since the age of 3 and is now 11. We have seen this school at its finest and at its worst. The teaching staff is phenomenal absolutely outstanding. The administration at the school is lacking in leadership. Many great teachers have departed. The philospy of Maria Montessori is taught her[e] and it is done well, but too many politics have spoiled what once made this an awsome place for educating all children, regardless of socio economic staus or race. We hope to see it become what it once was again.
While I am not familiar with the entire scope of the curriculum and teaching staff at Denison, my granddaughter is in her second year of preschool there and I have been very impressed with the parent involvement and the extra curricular activities that are available. My granddaughter has been very happy in her class, has made friends,learned structure, and seems to be getting a good foundation for her future learning. The staff seems to be very caring and supportive. This year my granddaughter has had both gym and music, both of which she loves. It has added a great deal to her enjoyment and learning. We are very pleased with her program.
