D'Evelyn High School

Advertising Information for besthousingvalue

High school is a name used in some parts of the world, and particularly in North America, to describe the last segment of compulsory secondary education. It is preceded by primary education. High school is also the name used to describe the institution in which the final stage of compulsory education takes place. In the United States, high schools generally consist of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12, although the inclusion of grade 9 varies by school district.
David S. D'Evelyn High School is a public secondary school located in suburban Denver, Colorado and is part of the Jefferson County R-1 public school district. It is an option school that consistently ranks among the top high schools in the state while maintaining a small overall school size across the six grades it serves. Jill Colby is a principal.
David D'Evelyn was influential in helping the Colorado Charter Schools Act of 1993 become law. He passed away shortly before the act went into effect. At the same time the Colorado Charter Schools Act was going through the legislative process, the Dennison option school in Lakewood, Colorado was straining at the limits of its site capacity providing a K-8 program. In response to a need and desire to expand Dennison's program through high school, a group of parents proposed a combined junior and senior high school that would relocate the 7th and 8th grades from Dennison and add the high school at a rate of one grade level per year. Naming themselves the Initiating Committee, they submitted an application to the Jefferson County School Board to operate as an educational option school with a request to be considered for a charter school if the educational option request was denied on December 17, 1993.
The Jefferson County school district acquired 40 acres of the historic Fehringer Ranch property during master planning for the area in the late 1990s. Funds to build the new campus were approved in a school bond election in 1998. A formal groundbreaking ceremony took place in early 2000 and the school's grand opening was on August 25, 2001.
The school hosts chapters of academic organizations National Junior Classical League and Mu Alpha Theta and service organizations including Interact and the Red Cross Youth Corporation Clubs founded by D'Evelyn students include the D'Evelyn Disguise, an improvisational comedy troupe, and Shirley Praise, a Christian worship group.
