    "Our child is entering the 7th grade at DSST -Stapleton and we could not be more pleased with her development and growth. The rigorous academic program and social expectations were just what she needs. I can see that DSST would not fit every personality, however, I think it would be the rare circumstance where a child would not benefit from this approach. My daughter has thrived and says that she enjoys middle school much more than her elementary school. The teachers have been responsive to us and the administration is dedicated."

    "My daughter just finished mandatory summer school for incoming 6th graders. She won t admit it to her friends that did not have summer school, but she repeatedly told me that she really enjoyed it. She was proud of her test improvements during the three week days, she definitely bonded with the teachers and her advisor (somewhat like your camp counselor), and enjoyed learning without the teachers being distracted from disruptive students. We feel very lucky to have gotten into DSST!"

    "DSST is an incredible school, I graduated last year and am glad that I made the choice to attend dsst instead of a less rigorous, larger, neighborhood school. All of the teachers are phenomenal, they really care about all of the students and strive to make personal connections with them. The Denver school of science and technology, as expected, does not have much in the way of art programs. Students that are artistically inclined are celebrated, but it s not a space for them to grow in as an artist. Dsst is renowned for it's ability to take underprivileged underrepresented minority students and make them into true scholars prepared to attend any university in the country (or beyond). My freshman class, for example, has 140 students from 51 middle schools across the metro area. For this reason , most students are required to attend a summer school session in English, math, or both to be prepared for the coming school year. The community is very tight knit, students become proficient with technology, and are ready to take on the world when they graduate. Th school also prides itself on development of character through the schools core values. Finally a place where school is cool."

    "Warning to parents and students. Our daughter is enrolled in DSST, 7th Grade. If you are looking for a rigorous educational experience you've found it. If the emotional development of your young adult is just as valuable, this may not be the school for you. This school does not support adolescent development and has very low tolerance for allowing young ones to express themselves or develop emotionally. The teachers are not well trained on dealing with conflict and do not have the tools necessary to support the growth process of a young adult. There are just some things we are not willing to sacrifice for our child. We are withdrawing her from DSST as the emotional abuse and neglect is not something we'll exchange for the education."

    "This is the best school in Denver. They challenge children and have manditory tutoring if they are not succeeding in a particular area."
