- DRHS is an exceptional community promoting extraordinary learning, expanded opportunities, college prep honors/AP/IB course rigor and success for all students.
- We are a comprehensive, technologically-advanced school dedicated to community engagement via balancing the human need to live, love, learn, and leave a legacy.
- Outstanding interscholastic programs at DRHS include award-winning programs in athletics, activities, drama, business/marketing, music, technology, and art.
Dakota Ridge HS aspires to develop a synergy from four human needs: to live, to love, to learn and to leave a legacy. We consciously demonstrate: the physical need "To Live" in an environment that is clean, safe and vibrant, inspiring a healthy attitude in its learners; the social need "To Love" self and others with respect, high expectations, trust and decency, belonging as a responsible member of the community; the mental need "To Learn" by seeking and accepting challenging opportunities expanding our abilities and motivating others; and the spiritual need "To Leave a Legacy" by establishing a sense of purpose to our existence through contributions to the lives of others. http://stream.jeffco.k12.co.us/communications/JimJelinekDRHS.wmv View a video interview with principal Jim Jelinek.
