At South, we pride ourselves in our well-rounded education. Our goal has always been a college education opportunity for every student. Recently, we had a set back in terms of grants and state funding that assisted our students with critical funds needed for college application fees, as well as AP and SAT testing fees.
We wish to eliminate these financial barriers so ALL students have the same opportunities.
Please contact South if you wish to discuss the need further and/or donate!
Our goal is $20,000!
Here are some important dates for you to remember! Please see below:
DPS SchoolChoice Expo Week – DPS is holding five regional school expos rather than one large districtwide expo, as we have in the past. These expos will take place the week of Jan. 22, 2018. More information here.

SchoolChoice closes – February 28 at 4:00 p.m.
Our three courses of AP Physics where given the challenge to engineer and build a working marble roller coaster with four specific features: a loop, a corkscrew, a camelback, and a banked curve. Students had to apply physics calculations to the engineering of their coaster. Students presented their roller coasters and the applied mathematics to their class during finals. It was an intensive group project where students persevered and ended up with some awesome final products. Some samples are below!
Last night we hosted 100+ middle school athletes for our first ever Rebel Athletics Night! We shared (and bragged) about our programs as we connected with our future Rebel student-athletes and their families. Shout out to teacher-coaches Ryan Marini, Veronica Marcelo and John Walsh who did a great job presenting on different aspects of their respective programs. We also had presentations from our current student-athletes (Hassan El Amin, Nicole Oberlag, Nate Kingdom) and former Rebel stars who have gone on to compete at the collegiate level (Zach Lindsay (UNC), Kendra Martin (Fresno St), Annie Hurney (Wyoming), Allison Hart (Florida Southern).
Thanks to all our coaches who attended and took the time to meet with our Future Rebels – feedback from parents and community was awesome!
BIG SHOUT OUT to Rich Cole who put together an exciting video which captures our program wowed our guests! (shared below)

SOUTH HIGH SCHOOL – PRESS RELEASE!
Author Helen Thorpe Reunites with Students She Profiled in Newly Released Book, The Newcomers
Immigrant teenagers at South High School recount their experiences adjusting to life in America
Denver – Throughout the entirety of the 2015-16 school year, award-winning and “meticulously observant” (The New Yorker) author Helen Thorpe was a fixture in Edward Williams’ English Language Acquisition class at South High School. She was there to follow the journeys of 22 immigrant and refugee teenagers as they learned English and adjusted to life in America. Wednesday, following the release of her critically acclaimed book, The Newcomers: Finding Refuge, Friendship, and Hope in an American Classroom, Thorpe returned to South High School for a panel discussion with Edward Williams and several of the students whose stories she shares.
