Enrollment Process

DSST Public Schools participates fully in the DPS SchoolChoice enrollment process and all seats are assigned as part of the lottery process.

Step 1: Pick a school

DSST has eight campuses througout the Denver and will open its first middle school in north west Aurora in 2019. We serve students grades 6 through 12 and accept transfers through 10th grade. Our main entry points are in grade 6 and 9, at the beginning of middle school and high school, respectively.  To learn more about the unique qualities of our schools, explore our campuses!





Step 2: Come to an Open House or take a Family Tour

Open Houses and Family Tours give families and students a closer look into our schools. At both events you can expect to learn about DSST curriculum, our school culture and our traditions, and the extracurricular opportunities that we offer our students. We look forward to seeing you there! 

Unfortunately, Open House and Family Tour season at DSST has come to a close. Check back in the fall for more information about visiting our schools.


Step 3: Enroll.

DSST Public Schools participates in the DPS SchoolChoice enrollment process and all admissions to DSST Public Schools are coordinated through the lottery process. To be eligible to attend a DSST Public School you must submit a SchoolChoice form, which is available online on the SchoolChoice website. Round 1 of SchoolChoice begins January 15th and closes January 20th. Round 2 will begin April 3rd. At that time, applications will be accepted on a fisrt-come first-serve basis until the first day of school (August 15). Round 2 is contingent on how many seats are available.
