There Is Work - And There’s Your Life’s Work

DSST Public Schools is a network of middle and high schools located in Denver, Colorado. We foster school communities where our students and staff become the best versions of themselves. As part of a values-driven organization with a deliberately integrated community, our schools serve students from all walks of life. Our six core values, respect, responsibility, integrity, doing your best, curiosity and courage are truly embedded in everything we do and are central to our strong academic results. At the core of our approach are strong and meaningful relationships, fostered in small schools, that ensure every student and staff member is known and valued for their unique contributions. Through this whole child approach, we operate many of the top middle and high schools in the city of Denver. But the true success has been that all our graduating seniors have been accepted into college since the first graduating class in 2004. Join a team that’s making an impact – apply to DSST for the 2018-19 school year.



We support each other to not only have fulfilling careers, but more importantly, to lead fulfilling lives that combine deeply meaningful professional work with personal well-being, with the ultimate goal of sustaining our team to continue advancing DSST's mission over many years.

Professional Learning


Excellent teachers and leaders are at the core of our success. Our differentiated approach to career development offers unique internal and external opportunities to enhance your leadership and learning.

The culture at DSST Public Schools is palpable. Our teams celebrate diversity, prioritize joy, and are guided by our Core Values, both inside and outside of our schools’ walls. Together we form a community of educators, lifelong learners, and friends.
