New school set to open in downtown Denver

DENVER — The Downtown Denver Expeditionary School will be filled with new students Wednesday.

The school is part of the Emily Griffith Campus, which houses three schools.

Kids in kindergarten through fifth grade will attend the new school. It has reached 90 percent enrollment.

The campus also houses Emily Griffith High School and the technical school. A great benefit to students is the partnerships with the Children’s Museum, Art Museum and Center for the Performing Arts.

The Downtown Denver Partnership says adding another high-quality school in the area will help to attract more families to area neighborhoods.
