Dennison is a school with high expectations for both behavior and academics. It is for committed parents who believe in the school's philosophy and not for whiners who want to lower the standards because they are not willing to pay the price for academic success through hard work and discipline. If you believe in a rigorous academic environment that requires discipline and an attitude of excellence, this is the school for you and your child! I give Dennison teachers and an excellent curriculum credit for the success of my children. However, I also take credit as a parent who believes in the Dennison philosophy and for holding my kids to the school's high standards. Just because your child attends Dennison/DeEvlyn does not give them automatic acceptance to Ivy League colleges. It takes hard work and determination.
My grown childen attended Dennison and it was a wonderful experience in public education. The strong academics of the program was my attraction to the school and I found the community of caring parents & teachers was the icing on the cake. Both my childern are working professionals and I have to give their early education credit for setting them in the right direction.....Warren Petracek/Lakewood CO
As a family we have thoroughly enjoyed our Dennison experience where the goal is more than 'no child left behind.' Dennison's leadership represents a special blend of care for the future by paying special attention to the student today. Dennison has a definite commitment to excellence through the positive actions of its dedicated teachers. Dennison's principal and teachers are excellent educators who strive, on a daily basis, to lead by example and ensure that the partnership between parents, teachers, and students are positively balanced in a safe environment for learning. Dennison = a quality educational experience in a safe environment.
The best Elementary School in Jefferson County with the always the best Test Scores!
You will never find a better school anywhere. If you want your student to learn how to read, write, experience a wonderful Math program, this is the place! The school uses the Open Court Program and there just isn't anything better. I taught at this school for 10 years, and believe me there is nothing better in Jefferson County.
