DSISD Set to Join the Beacon Network

Aug 14, 2020

The Denver School of Innovation and Sustainable Design opened to students in the fall of 2015 in an effort to offer high school learners a personalized experience recognizing that success has numerous pathways. One of DPS’s earliest innovation campuses, DSISD purposed to be a community of learners invested in balance, inquiry, recognizing setbacks as opportunities and committed to the multi-faceted success of all students.

We enthusiastically welcome DSISD into the Beacon Network as our partner in what we are terming as “Year Zero.” This initial chapter will allow both parties to define the path ahead, and intentionally map out our vision of a clear, engaging, rigorous and college-ready trajectory for the 6-12 journey through innovative practices infused with advanced technology and a personalized approach. Enrichments will be a common thread that sets this new Beacon Trio apart from other options as families explore the best educational setting for their middle and high school learners. Throughout the year, we will share ideas about creating classroom environments that are student-focused, demand critical thinking and prompt curiosity. We will plan and discover together effective methods of addressing the social and emotional needs of each individual, while promoting the importance of one’s active involvement and meaningful contribution to the larger community. We believe that combining the efforts of our three campuses will further enhance both the experiences of and opportunities for our Beacon students.

Welcome DSISD! Fasten your seatbelts as we immerse your community in all-things-Beacon, while celebrating all we already foundationally share in our pursuit of excellence in every endeavor for every student!

La Escuela de Innovación y Diseño Sostenible de Denver abrió a los estudiantes en el otoño de 2015 en un esfuerzo por ofrecer a los estudiantes de secundaria una experiencia personalizada que reconozca que el éxito tiene numerosas vías. Uno de los primeros campus de innovación de DPS, DSISD se propuso ser una comunidad de estudiantes invertidos en equilibrio, indagar, reconocer los reveses como oportunidades y comprometerse con el éxito multifacético de todos los estudiantes.

Damos la bienvenida con entusiasmo a DSISD a Beacon Network como nuestro socio en lo que denominamos “Año Cero”. Este capítulo inicial permitirá a ambas partes definir el camino a seguir, y trazar intencionalmente nuestra visión de una trayectoria clara, atractiva, rigurosa y preparada para la universidad para el viaje 6-12 a través de prácticas innovadoras infundidas con tecnología avanzada y un enfoque personalizado. Los enriquecimientos serán un hilo conductor que distingue a este nuevo Beacon Trio de otras opciones a medida que las familias exploran el mejor entorno educativo para sus estudiantes de secundaria y preparatoria. A lo largo del año, compartiremos ideas sobre la creación de entornos de aula centrados en los alumnos, que exijan un pensamiento crítico y una curiosidad inmediata. Planificaremos y descubriremos juntos métodos efectivos para abordar las necesidades sociales y emocionales de cada individuo, mientras promovemos la importancia de la participación activa y la contribución significativa a la comunidad en general. Creemos que la combinación de los esfuerzos de nuestros tres campus mejorará aún más las experiencias y oportunidades para nuestros estudiantes de Beacon.

Bienvenido DSISD! ¡Abróchense los cinturones de seguridad mientras sumergimos a su comunidad en todo lo relacionado con Beacon, mientras celebramos todo lo que compartimos fundamentalmente en nuestra búsqueda de la excelencia en cada esfuerzo para cada estudiante!
