Step 1: Explore Our Schools
DSST has eight campuses througout Denver and one middle school in Northwest Aurora. 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. Due to COVID-19, during the 2020-2021 school year our school visits will look a bit different. Learn more and take a virtual tour here.
