Denver Christian School Reviews

We initially chose Denver Christian because of the incredible way they integrate Christian teaching and perspective into every area of the curriculum. We wanted a school where the truth that "Our world belongs to God" shapes every aspect of our kids' education and that is exactly what we found at DCS. We continue to be pleased with this approach to education at DCS, but have also been grateful for all the other ways this school has blessed our children and our family. Our kids are challenged to grow academically but also socially, physically, and spiritually (What they say about "educating the whole child" is true!) and have great teachers who are in regular contact with us. We think that an education at DCS is one of the best investments we can make for our kids as we try to prepare them for lives serving in God's Kingdom and we look forward to being apart of this school for years to come!

Excellent school! Denver Christian’s high quality staff, academics, athletic, and fine arts programs foster an evnironment where students are encouraged and challenged to discover their unique God-given gifts and talents. The leadership, teachers and coaches are very knowledgeable and caring, and they motivate the students to recognize their full potential. The academic and athletic facilities are top-notch too! We are so thankful for this amazing school and the DC community!
All three of our children attended Denver Christian Schools (DC) starting in kindergarten. We have a son entering 9th grade and a daughter entering 11th grade. Our oldest son graduated from DC in 2017. He demonstrated tremendous maturity in his first year at college and much of that can be traced back to his learning at DC.

Private school education comes with financial commitment. Time after time our commitment to send our kids to Denver Christian proves to be worth it. Our children have thrived in this loving and caring environment. They are challenged to grow intellectually and spiritually. The teachers and leadership are open to communication whenever we want and they proactively reach out when needed. When we have encountered differences of opinion, response to our concerns has been thoughtful, professional and thorough. I have confidence that every day Denver Christian strives to provide our children with a high quality education grounded in Biblical truth.
