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.

My school is very diverse with the best teachers in Colorado. They prepare me for college and overall they get me ready for the real world. My administration is apart of our every day life at school and makes sure that everything is how it should. My teachers will go above and beyond with what we learn and if a student doesn't understand they will go out of their way to make sure that student gets the material. The teachers don't just look at the test scores but instead look at us as students. DSST always me to feel safe at my school and feel as a community and that will get me ready for college. Even though it is a smaller school, I still believe I got the high school experience with my friends and teachers and overall DSST is one of the best schools in Denver.
What I like about DSST is when it comes to academics it is the most important factor. When a student is failing, a teacher will do whatever it takes to put them on the right path and even when a student is succeeding, they will always check on them. The teacher as well, offers tutoring to help students who are struggling. A couple things I wish I could change or make better are school spirit, better sports, and being able to have more say in our classes and how we want to better help our school. DSST lacks extracurricular things but is beyond good in school work.
