We are excited to announce that 26 #WeAreDPS students were selected to attend the Governor's School of North Carolina for the 2020 session this summer.

Unfortunately, the 2020 session of the North Carolina Governor's School was canceled due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.  Students/families were contacted about other benefits and opportunities that will be provided to our students.
