Statement of Common Purpose
At Denver East, our caring community of unique individuals is driven by our great strength: our diversity.
Academic, artistic, and cultural learning experiences develop the whole person and propel every Angel to success in learning and in life.
At Denver East High School, Black Lives Matter.
Our school, a proudly diverse community of learners, exists in a local, city, and national context where personal, structural and institutional racism exist and persist. We know that this reality continues to negatively impact the lives of our students and staff members. We are committed to examining our beliefs and understandings, dismantling racist structures, and creating anti-racist policies and actions that ensure high levels of success in the learning lives of our black students. This commitment includes the recruitment, hiring, and retention of black educators to teach our Angels with excellence.
In partnership with the Denver Public Schools, we are engaged in the development and initial implementation of the Denver East Black Excellence Plan. The purpose of the Black Excellence Plan is to create and engage strategic actions that significantly improve the school experience for black students and staff members at our school. For more information related to this plan, please, contact Principal John Youngquist at 720-423-8370.
