The Denver School of Science and Technology (DSST) is a free, open- enrollment public school serving middle and high school students. DSST's approach is predicated on a standards- based pedagogy and values-based school culture delivered in a college preparatory liberal arts program with a science and technology focus. DSST is the only "Distinguished" rated high school in Denver and 100% of its graduates have been accepted into four year colleges. The Denver School of Science and Technology is dedicated to providing a diverse student body with an outstanding liberal arts high school education with a science and technology focus. By creating a powerful learning community centered on core values and a shared commitment to academic excellence, DSST will increase the number of underrepresented students (women, minorities and economically disadvantaged) who attain college science and liberal arts degrees. DSST graduates will be responsible, engaged citizens who are prepared to be leaders of the future.
