DSA & Ashley Partnership

Ashley Elementary student in a classroom

Ashley is proudly the only elementary school to have a working partnership with Denver’s premier art school, Denver School of the Arts. During this afterschool program Ashley scholars in grades 3-5 have the opportunity to go in-depth in one of the eight majors offered at DSA. These majors include creative writing, guitar, band, vocal music, video cinema, theater, visual arts, and dance.

High school students from DSA come to Ashley and mentor our students so they can learn what this content area is all about. Students participate in engaging activities and fun games while growing in their specific interests. Students who participate in this program often go on to audition for DSA or continue their interest in middle school.
