DSST: Cole is an open-enrollment public school and part of Denver Public Schools. As such, all admissions to DSST are coordinated through the Denver Public Schools (DPS) lottery process.

Round 2 is the first-come, first-served segment of SchoolChoice for families who missed Round 1; took part in Round 1 but want to re-explore their options; or are new to DPS for next school year. Should your student be interested in transferring mid-year, please first contact the front desk to find out about any openings.
