Family Orientation

Orientation will cover vital information, including key foundations of our program for both students and families, guidance and support for the next steps in the enrollment process, and provide students a space to begin to build our community. We require all new families to attend the orientation as it will be interactive and will give families the opportunity to meet a large number of teachers and staff.

Orientation option #1: Wednesday, April 22

Orientation option #2: Wednesday, May 6

Time: Check-In Starts at 5:45pm. The Orientation will start promptly at 6:00pm in the DSST: Montview MS Cafeteria and end at 7:30pm.


New Student Academy

Incoming 6th graders are required to attend summer school. 

New Student Academy Dates:

Tuesday, June 16-Tuesday, June 23

Time:

  • Breakfast: 7:45am
  • New Student Academy: 8:00am-11:30am 

We realize that DSST is a big change from the traditional public school experience, so we want to make sure our newest students are prepared for the school year. Students will need to be in full uniform during summer school. More details and the school supply list will be provided at orientation.

We hope that by the time the school year begins, our new students will feel a part of the community and know the "ins-and-outs" of DSST!

New Student Academy FAQs

1. Our summer plans coincide with the New Student Academy. What do we need to do in order to ensure that my child does not lose his/her spot? 

We understand that summer vacations are sometimes planned many months in advance. If you find that your student will not be able to attend New Student Academy, please contact our Front Office Manager, Leonardo Ruiz at leonardo.ruiz@scienceandtech.org to discuss arrangements.

Yes. Students are required to wear uniforms and abide by the dress code - you will learn more about this and the ordering process at orientation. Uniforms can be purchased at www.dsstknights.com.
