The new campus in Lakewood is top notch! The new CEO is amazing and leading the school in incredible ways. This is where you want to send your children for an excellent education.

This is a GREAT school with dedicated teachers who know each and every child. The academics are are challenging, yet attainable to those who apply themselves. The college professors delight in having Denver Christian graduates as they have been continuously challenged and know how to present their own work well. The sports programs are realistic and successful. Their athletes are honest and fair. For anyone reviewing this school, please read the heartfelt comments from a child/student, who is now an adult, reaching back to affirm their Christ-centered years at Denver Christian Schools. Listen to the students and understand that their gratitude and passion for a solid Christian foundation enriched at Denver Christian Schools is the real review. To God be the Glory.

Our son went to Denver Christian last year. I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone. The Highlands Ranch campus new principal doesn't belong in the position. He has no leadership skills and treats parents and children very poorly. After leaving we spoke to other parents who left the school and they had the same experience. The school has lost hundreds of students over the last few years. I don't think it is due to competition, rather it is due to the leadership of the school.

I graduated from Denver Christian Schools in 2008. I love DC because it quickly feels like home. The opportunities there are amazing. Every class I was in brought me to a better understanding of the Lord and his world. The arts are important at DC and because of its small size, students get many chances to shine on stage, at concerts and through different medias. DC is home to many very successful sports teams and has won several state championships in almost every sport. The head basketball coach, Dick Katte, has won over 800 games in his career -- more than any other coach in Colorado!! DC was my home for 13 years and I never stopped loving this amazing school!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
