For all who wish to learn

With over 30 years of service, Emily Griffith High School remains a pillar of empowerment in the Denver community. Through unwavering efforts to evolve and expand opportunity for young adults, EGHS has completed its transition to the nationally recognized competency-based curriculum. This curriculum style ensures that students, at any level of education, achieve mastery on Common Core State Standards and are able to successfully engage in postsecondary learning and career ventures. Because EGHS shares space with the Emily Griffith Technical College in the new Downtown Denver campus, it is has never been easier for students to access postsecondary success. With new programming, a new location, and a fresh new look, EGHS looks forward to continuing its work in cultivating cutting-edge opportunities for Colorado’s youth.

Our mission is to provide pathways for students who choose to pursue their high school diploma or GED and post-secondary goals. By utilizing an authentic curriculum, flexible scheduling, small class sizes, and robust social/emotional support serve as a springboard for students to demonstrate competency in courses while having the opportunity to simultaneously engage in college, career, and technical education programs.
