Our nation is made up of immigrants from all over the world. We believe all students have a lot to gain from talking to and learning from students with perspectives different from their own for success in a globally-connected economy. We view our various backgrounds as one of our biggest assets, and together, we can create a shared future.
Our students speak more than 140 different languages and we proudly serve immigrant and refugee students in our six Newcomer Centers throughout our district. In DPS, we celebrate diversity and provide necessary resources and supports to eliminate barriers to success and foster a more equitable future for all our students. We commit to building a culture that embraces the unique identity and potential of every child.
