Watch the Future Freshman Angels Presentation.
This year we are offering “Future East Angel Experiences” so that you and your student can build a quality, meaningful, understanding of what East High School has to offer.
In order to accommodate more families, provide everyone with a greater variety of engaging and diverse perspectives, these virtual events will take the place of our previous “in building” shadowing program. We no longer offer tours or shadowing. If you have any questions about this please contact the counseling office.
We also encourage you to check out some of the incredible arts, athletic, and extracurricular events you can find on our East calendar. We look forward to connecting with you.
For questions or concerns specific to Denver East, contact our Registrar at Yvonne_Catbagan@dpsk12.org.
Developed by the College Board, the Advanced Placement (AP) program offers high school students college-level courses and exams, which result in students having the opportunity to get a head start on earning college credits. Students who take AP courses and achieve a qualifying score open the door to several benefits on their postsecondary success journey. By earning college credit while in high school, students save significantly on college tuition, avoid required introductory courses and advance to upper-level courses, which places them on a faster track toward degree completion.
DPS CareerConnect gives students early exposure to thousands of career options as they learn more about their own passions and interests. With access to hundreds of exploration opportunities, students visit work sites in a field they want to know more about and talk to professionals. Students take the skills learned in the classroom and apply them on the job through shadowing, internships and apprenticeship opportunities. CareerConnect’s goal is to help students identify their passions, explore what they love doing and make a career out of it through intentional planning.
Concurrent Enrollment allows students to take courses through local colleges and universities while they are enrolled in high school. Students gain exposure to the academic challenges of college while in their supportive high school environment or on a college campus, earning college and high school credits simultaneously. These courses are offered free of charge to East students. Students must obtain an A, B or C to earn college credit. Students who have earned 12 or more college credits by the end of their fourth year of high school are eligible to enroll in ASCENT. This is a 5th Year Program that allows students to remain in high school for a fifth year consisting entirely of college classes.
AVID is not just another program…at its heart, AVID is a philosophy.
Believing that by holding students accountable to the highest standards, providing academic and social support, they will rise to the challenge.
Simply, AVID educators and students use proven practices in order to prepare for success in high school, college, and career.
To support them in the rigorous coursework, AVID students learn organizational and study skills, develop critical thinking, learn to ask probing questions, receive academic help from peers and college tutors, and participate in enrichment and motivational activities to make their college dreams a reality.
During Freshmen Orientation Night at East spring semester, students and their parents apply for the A+ Angels Program. The majority of students selected for the program have demonstrated regular attendance, have mid-range standardized scores and grades, and show a desire to have a mentor.
The mentoring relationship is intended to last throughout all four years of high school, though circumstances sometimes prevent that. Students who stay active with their mentor until graduation receive a $1,000 educational award upon registration to a post-secondary institution.
During the freshman and sophomore years, you will meet weekly during Academic Success Class (ASC), from 7:30 until 9:05 a.m. (ASC for freshmen meets on Wednesdays; sophomores on Thursdays.) The Junior/Senior ASC is on Thursdays from 11:40 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Upperclassmen and mentors can also meet outside of ASC at a mutually convenient time.
The A+ Angels Mentor Program will support you along the way. The program provides:
