Each year, students take a base of core classes which include a science, history, English, math, and Spanish (Native and Non-Native) course. Additionally, students have the opportunity to choose electives each year.
Currently, we offer a wide variety of electives. Examples include creative writing, personal finance, astronomy, mindfulness, and Chinese linguistics.
In the 11th and 12th grade, students also have the chance to engage with college coursework through AP classes. DSST is committed to not just offering AP courses, but to ensuring that students will be successful on the AP exams in order to earn college credit. Courses currently offered are AP US History, AP Calculus (AB & BC), AP Chemistry, AP Biology, AP Physics, and AP Spanish.
