DSST is an extraordinary school!

At DSST, half of the students come from economically disadvantaged families. 62% are Hispanic or African American. Half are first generation college-bound students. Most came to DSST at least one level behind in math and English, but they closed achievement gaps – only a 4% difference between income groups in 10th grade reading scores. Of DSST’s first three graduating classes, 100% have been accepted into a four-year college and less than 7% of graduates needed remedial courses. 47%  enter STEM fields in college, of whom 19% are women and 59% are minority.
