History & Future



Denver Language School (DLS) opened its doors in August of 2010 with our first seven classes of kindergarten through second grade. It started as the brainchild of two Stapleton residents, Camilla Modesitt and Kristy Fantz, who saw the need for a true immersion education in Denver. DLS got early and continuing strategic and financial help as an incubator project of the Stapleton Foundation. 


We are the #1 choice for kindergarten throughout the entire DPS system. We have expanded to offer K-8 education and are housed in two buildings in Denver
