This May, DSST Public Schools completed our 15th school year. Our first school, DSST: Montview High School (formerly DSST: Stapleton) opened in the Stapleton neighborhood of Denver in the fall of 2004. In the 15 years since, we have opened 14 schools on 8 campuses and will expand into Aurora, Colorado this fall with the opening of Aurora Science & Tech Middle School.
