Olivia, a 9th grader at DSST: Conservatory Green High School, testified at the State Capitol back in January to advocate for a bill that would automatically enroll high performing high school students into advanced classes.
My name is Eve Guess, and I am a senior at DSST: Stapleton High School. After graduating high school, I intend to pursue higher education at an accredited university. Of the eight schools I applied to, I am most interested in continuing my education at a Historically Black College or University. I am very excited to have been accepted to Hampton University and will be incredibly involved in clubs and organizations at my school. My plans after earning my degree include becoming a biotechnician and working in a research lab that focuses its efforts on genetic and heritable diseases. I will then return to school to begin graduate work toward my master's in science. Moving forward, I would like to work in the area of research and medicinal development.
We're back into the third trimester. For our seniors, that means that college is just around the corner! Now is the time to keep their eyes on the prize.
Everything in our world has a starting point. An idea turns into a business, a baby turns into a child, who then becomes an adult; people and things build off that starting point and develop into their fully fledged form. For DSST Public Schools, it’s not different. We build our campuses out not all at once, but by adding a grade each year, starting in 6th grade.
