School Tours

As you consider your school choice options for the 2022-2023 school year, come take a look at one of Denver’s most diverse and dynamic schools. With a new and motivated principal, a highly skilled and dedicated staff, and a vibrant and supportive community, Dora Moore is a compelling and appealing choice! 

We are so excited to announce that Dora Moore ECE – 8 will be hosting four school tours during the month of January! 

Our first two school tours will be held on Thursday, January 6, 2022 and Tuesday, January 11th, 2022, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. for families interested specifically in ECE & Kindergarten.

Our third school tour will be held on Thursday, January 13th, from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. for families that are specifically interested in learning about 1st – 8th grade. 

Our fourth and final school tour will be held on Thursday, January 13th for all families interested in learning about all grades (ECE – 8th grade) and aspects of Dora Moore. 

All prospective families will have the opportunity to hear directly from Dora Moore’s new principal Abe Janson, a few teachers, tour the building, and ask questions.

Children and prospective students are welcome and encouraged to attend all school tour events! At Dora Moore, we believe in student voice and we value their input.

Please note that all visitors (adults and children) will be required to wear masks.

All interested families are asked to RSVP for all tour dates.

We can’t wait to meet you!

School Choice

All kindergarten through 8th grade students are guaranteed a seat at their neighborhood or boundary school. If you do not live within Dora Moore’s boundaries, families seeking to attend Dora Moore can choice-in. The school choice process seeks to maximize the number of students and families who have the opportunity to attend their most preferred schooling option across the city. A student’s chance of choicing into their most preferred school is dependent upon that particular school’s list of priorities.

Unlike Kindergarten through 8th grade, ECE (Early Childhood Education) students are not guaranteed a seat at their neighborhood or boundary school. Please note that students who turn four on or before October 1st are eligible for Dora Moore’s 4-year-old preschool program. Due to limited space, enrollment is not guaranteed.

The Round 1 School Choice window for the 2022-23 school year opens January 14, 2022 and closes on February 15, 2022. To participate in School Choice, families need to submit one School Choice application per student.
