Winning Proposed School Name, Mascot & School Colors!

The DVUSD Governing Board has approved the name Inspiration Mountain School with the mascot of a Knight and colors of Royal Blue and Black for the school currently being built at 5757 Inspiration Mountain Parkway near 57th Avenue and Happy Valley Road.

This recommendation comes following an initial survey that was open to our DVUSD community from December 15 - January 5 to collect ideas for name, mascot, and colors. All suggestions from this survey were carefully and mindfully reviewed during a school naming community meeting which was attended by future Inspiration Mountain School students, families, community members and potential staff members. This group gave input on the suggestions and narrowed the list of ideas. They selected their top three school names and mascot/color combinations. The community then had the opportunity to select their favorite in a final voting survey. DVUSD received more than 800 votes from future students, families, staff and community members to this survey!
