Is there a reason why there's no discussion of how ethnic/racial housing patterns and segregation affected the ethnic and racial populations of the schools at various times in their history?

Thank you for reading and commenting, Barbara!

This particular blog is intended to provide a brief introduction to the origins of Denver's oldest schools, and is not meant as a comprehensive history of each school. For a deeper look at the racial and ethnic segregation of Denver and its effect on schools, I would recommend the following blogs and histories:

Five Points and Whittier Neighborhood History

Park Hill Neighborhood History

Rachel Noel Biography

Whittier and San Rafael Historic District History

As always, please contact us if we can help you find specific information about a particular neighborhood or school. We are happy to be of assistance!

Great article! Love reading about the history of Denver schools. Did see a typo in 3rd paragraph regarding East and West chronological order, specifically in parentheses. Thanks for sharing the info!
