DENVER (CBS4) – Denver Public Schools have one more week of summer vacation, but the district is already celebrating what it calls a renaissance at West High School.

Starting this year two new academies for sixth to 12th graders will operate on the campus as West High School is phased out.

On Monday Superintendent Tom Boasberg announced the academies are getting more than $1 million in grants from the state and federal governments.

Three other schools are getting $2 million in grants as well. They are DCIS at Ford Elementary, CMS Elementary and Smith Elementary.
