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.

What I liked about DSST GVR was the seemingly confidence in us as students, but also how it continues to grow as a school with its extracurriculars, particularly the art program. I like how rigorous it was because it really seemed like they were preparing us for college.

What I'd like to see be added is a holistic perspective on kids, and not just how they look on the school's resume essentially. I'd like the next seniors to be able to focus on scholarships with supports as provided and required for college applications. Too much emphasis on college and not other guidance for other paths, such as non-profit work, jobs, military service.
As an incoming senior at DSST I have seen how much our community has evolved. During my 3 years of high school, I have seen how little by little they are preparing me for the real world.Whether it is through my internship or through my core classes, they all incorporate ideas that I will need in the future. Also, another thing I like about this high school is the way that it brings the whole community together.The morning meetings helps us come together to share ideas that we care about; they have brought both laughter and tears but through it all, we support each other. I enjoy seeing the diversity at our school, I believe it is very unique to see how each and everyone of us is different in our own way. Lastly, I also like how this school has a lot of opportunities for us from AP classes to all types of clubs and sports. I honestly wouldn’t change anything about this school.This school believes in each and everyone of their students know they have the potential to do great things.
