STUDENT SHADOWING

After an MYP parent visit, your child will spend a day shadowing one of our students. We schedule full-day shadows (8:30 - 3:30) throughout the fall and early winter. This will give your child a chance to truly experience a day in the life of an ISDenver student, and to be an integrated part of the decision-making process for their enrollment. For advanced language applicants, we will also schedule a brief foreign language assessment. If your family does not currently live in Denver, please contact us to make alternate arrangements for this shadow day.
