Throughout my middle school and high school experience, I can say DSST: Green Valley Ranch has prepared me for my future. Although it is a very strict and challenging school, they are preparing each and every student for college.
As a diverse community, we've had many accomplishments and successes. Ever since it was opened, DSST: GVR has been ranked #1 in Denver. Also, we were ranked in #320 in the National Rankings and earned a goal medal. DSST is not only a competitive school academically, but athletically. The boy's basketball and boy's soccer have brought trophies and pride to our school too! I can proudly say that this school has shaped the student I am today.

Over the course 6 years, I have enjoyed my time at DSST. No other school in Denver pushes you with work and education like DSST. We have 100% acceptance into college and were gifted a spectacular gift by the government stating that we are one of the top high schools in the nation. Although are learning environments are beneficial for, the only problem I want solved is the school food. For a very successful school we should have a very successful breakfast and lunch. This will make kids want to eat more at the school instead of waiting to go home to eat.
DSST is an incredible school centered around culture of students, teachers, and the surrounding community. In this school the student feels supported by the staff and admin; however, there are certain downsides. The school is very biased politically and may make some students feel scilenced to express their opinion. Furthermore, the change needed for DSST would be to welcome the opinions of others.
