DSST was founded as Denver School of Science and Technology, a single high school in Denver's Central Park neighborhood. Now, there are 16 DSST middle and high schools across Denver and Aurora. Learn more about our history here.
DSST Public Schools is not part of the Colorado Teacher’s Pension plan. All our staff do have access to a 401K account that receives a 5% gift after each year of service. Starting in 2019-2020 teachers working in our Aurora campus will be part of PERA.
Candidates apply to the network wide positions for all non-seasonal positions - this includes but not limited to full-time teachers, non-instructional staff, school leadership. If you have a location preference, please indicate that in the application. For any coach or elective teacher that is seasonal, each campus does have a separate application where you can indicate your desired role. Please reach out to our Talent team if you have any questions about the differences.

For those who are relocating from outside of the United States, Alaska, & Hawaii, we offer a one-time bonus of $2,000. This policy applies to all full-time DSST positions and is calculated using employees’ former address with DSST’s Home Office address.
