DSST has an exceptional amount of diversity, which in turn, creates a more accepting and cultured environment. I have not seen or experienced any kind of bullying here; in fact, being different is a good thing. The teachers are passionate and care about the students there, and spend many hours after and before school assisting students in both school and home problems. They definitely prepare you for college; they actually over-prepare you and freshman year seems like cake! The sports program isn't the greatest, but the academics are. One criticism I have is that they have a large focus on getting into college, but not how to stay. The majority of my graduating class is no longer enrolled in college, and they did not complete their freshman year.

DSST was definitely the best option I could have taken. I had amazing teachers who guided me to doing my best everyday. The environment at DSST is great. You can tell that everyone cares about and respects each other. DSST gives many resources for students, especially in junior and senior year. Overall, DSST GVR has provided me with great opportunities which will be useful for me in college. However, DSST GVR should incorporate the arts more and provide better resources for the girls athletic programs. In addition, DSST GVR should also take mental health more seriously due to the fact that the curriculum is a bit tough and stressful. It’s important for students to know who to go to and what resources they can take to further better themselves. Mental health is common in sports and DSST GVR should do weekly check ins to provide them with support.
I like the teachers. They are nice, friendly, and understand what students are going through. I get along very well with the teachers (even more than kids my own age.) However, the food and bathrooms are gross. The bathroom stinks so bad, I regularly have to plug my nose. The sports are ok, but not a lot of students go to the games. They also need more sports options. They do not have a variety of classes, just history, science, English, math, Spanish, and theater. There is no French, art, or music.
