DMHS will be accepting Choice Applications for students entering 7th grade in 2014/15
and DEFERRED 7th grade applications* for the 2015/2016 school year
*Fifth grade students at DPS Montessori schools (Denison, Academia Ana Marie Sandoval, and Lincoln) have a new choice option this year! Students can now select DMHS for deferred acceptance to attend in 7th grade. This means that students who are matched with DMHS for 7th grade can stay at their DPS Montessori Elementary School for 6th grade knowing that they have their 7th grade spot waiting for them at DMHS.
