Open House Events

Open Houses: Once a month on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-7:30pm the night before a shadow (note this has changed from being on Thursdays after shadow days)

DSISD hosts Open House events on a monthly basis from October through May of each school year. These events provide families an opportunity to learn about the DSISD school model and its guiding philosophy in greater depth. Open House events follow a general information and school overview, Q& A, and a school tour.

 

Shadow Days 

Student and Parent Shadow Days: Once a month on Wednesday mornings from 9:00-11:30am

It is our school community’s belief that students and families should be fully informed when they make their high school choice. Additionally, the DSISD school model is different from that of a traditional high school. We encourage all students and families to consider attending one of our Student and Parent Shadow days to better determine if DSISD is a good fit for a school community.

 

Schedule for Shadow Days

9:00 to 9:15 AM: Student and Parent welcome, Overview of school model and agenda for the shadow experience

9:15-9:30 Students and parents split up for tours and more information.

9:30- 11:15 Prospective Students attend classes with student ambassadors to see projects and daily learning experiences
