Profile:

DSST Public Schools (DSST) operates a network of tuition-free, open-enrollment public STEM charter schools. All DSST schools are part of the Denver Public Schools (DPS) district and students are admitted through DPS’ School Choice program. Our schools focus on building communities where students and staff are valued for their unique talents. Meaningful relationships are at the core of our model which is why our schools are small enough to ensure every student is known and also why we focus on character development. We have developed systems and structures to ensure our students will be prepared for college, career and life. The student population across the DSST network is 83 percent students of color and 69 percent free and reduced lunch. This year, DSST will serve approximately 5,300 students at thirteen schools on seven campuses: Byers, Cole, College View, Conservatory Green, Green Valley, Henry and Stapleton. DSST has been approved to open nine additional schools and four campuses by 2022. In 2018-2019, DSST will be opening DSST: Middle School @ Noel Campus. At full enrollment, DSST Public Schools will serve over 10,000 students, one quarter of the DPS 6-12 population, and will help more than double the number of four year college-ready DPS graduates. DSST Public Schools employees support each other not only to have fulfilling careers, but more importantly, to lead fulfilling lives that combine deeply meaningful professional work with personal well-being. Our core values are central to our program and to our results. These values are embedded in everything that we do and how we do it. The six DSST core values are: Respect - Appreciating the value of a person or an object through your words, actions and attitude - treating people appropriately with common courtesy. Responsibility - Able to be trusted and or depended upon to complete tasks, follow directions and own up to your actions. Integrity - Being truthful, fair and trustworthy in your words and actions - doing as you say and saying as you do. Courage - Possessing confidence and resolve to take risks and make right decisions in the face of pressure and adverse or unfamiliar circumstances. Curiosity - Eager to learn, explore and question things to gain a deeper understanding. Doing Your Best - Putting your best effort into everything you do.

Make Your Mark Campaign

DSST Public Schools is committed to hiring teachers and leaders who share the diverse backgrounds of the students we serve. In the fall of 2015, we became a proud partner of Make Your Mark Denver, a collaboration between the Denver Mayor’s Office, Denver Public Schools, and Denver based charter networks to accelerate citywide efforts around the recruitment and retention of educators of color. Please visit Make Your Mark’s website for more information on our partnership and for relocation resources associated with the campaign.
