Honor Roll Fall Semester

Honor Roll status is at two levels - Honor Roll and Principal's Scholar.  Honor Roll is definite as any student receiving a grade point average (GPA) of 3.5 or above for a semester grade. The Principal's Scholar is defined as students who achieve a GPA of 3.8 or above. Click here to view the list. 

DCSD 2017 Summer School for High School

Why consider summer school? DCSD's summer school will provide the following opportunities:
  • Earn credit for previous courses taken that received a fail
  • Remediation to improve specific skills
Most high schools will offer credit recovery only, online courses through Odesseyware, or a teacher led course.

*Students must register directly at the high school where credit recovery is to be taken. STEM high school does not offer summer school!

DCSD summer school is NOT:
  • For credit acceleration 
  • For course/grade replacement
  • For NCAA eligibility purposes 
Counselors have already been meeting with students and providing recommendations for summer school credit recovery course selections. Students and parents may print off the student's transcript from IC and take it to the high school of interest to register for summer school.

Spartan Space Sciences Summer Camp


Open to grades 4th-12th. For those under 13-years-old, a guardian must accompany them on the first day of camp for orientation. Dates of the camp are from July 10th-21st. Time of camp is from 9am-3pm. Cost is $275/student 


Spartan Space Sciences, an Academy program established in 2014, specializes in helping students engineer experiments for high altitude payload flights! 

In this summer Academy class, students will engineer a completely self-contained flight balloon carrying Pong-SAT experiments, an experiment small enough to fit either inside and/or on the outside of a ping pong ball.

Then the group will have an exciting day on Saturday July 22nd, launching their payload east of Denver for an all-day adventure of chasing the balloon from launch to landing using amateur radio tracking equipment, that reports online positions to smart phones via www.aprs.fi or www.habhub.org.

The balloon has the potential of reaching over 100,000 feet giving stunning views of the Earth below in the darkness from the edge of space! This part of the atmosphere is 1/100th of Earth at ground level, like Mars. This will be our program's 9th balloon project!

Students are expected to learn about the stratosphere, 21st century amateur radio tactics used to track the balloon's altitude, speed, and location....weather, basic physics, and to test their hypothesis of what will happen to their Pong-SAT.

Examples of payloads include but are not limited to biologics such as seeds, electronics such as data recorders, keychain cameras, and much more. This class will be taught in the engineering labs where students will receive guidance on preparing their Pong-SAT.

To learn more about what you might expect, we have student-produced Youtube videos that have documented flights and the events of flight day:

Besides student Pong-SATs, we plan to fly one of the Spartan Space Science GoPros to document the journey.
