History[edit]

In 2003, the first Denver Public Schools (DPS) Online High School class had six students, a principal (Jeanne Ross) and no teachers - classes were provided by Colorado Online Learning, another online school that Ross had helped start. The main office was located at CEC with the already established Distance Learning Department.

In 2004, with 13 students, four part-time teachers were hired to develop and teach online courses. In 2005, there were four teachers, all full time, and 46 students. In 2006, the offices moved to the old Baker school, now DCIS, and opened a satellite site at Manual High School. The first graduating class consisted of 14 students out of 135 enrolled students in 2007.

In 2008, 30 students graduated out of over 200 students who were enrolled. In 2009 the school offices moved to Mitchell Elementary School and a satellite site was opened at Hamilton Middle School.

In 2009, 32 students graduated with the assistance of Denver Online High School, including six who were also enrolled at other schools and 25 who graduated directly from the school.[1]
