We believe that in order to prepare each student for college in the 21st century, we need to develop the whole person. Guided by this belief, DSST: Elevate Northeast High School electives are creative, collaborative, and engaging classes that empower students to explore and better understand themselves and the world around them.

We teach students to actively take risks, innovate, think critically, and communicate effectively. We develop students’ community and cultural awareness, aesthetic appreciation, self-confidence, and self-discipline. With these tools we develop graduates who live active, healthy, fulfilling lives.
