New Faces in STEM Careers

The DSST (Denver School of Science and Technology) network, part of Denver Public Schools, was founded in 2005 to expand educational opportunities through open enrollment in STEM-focused schools. Green Valley Ranch High School opened in 2011 and has seen 100% of its seniors graduate and go on to college.

Green Valley Ranch High School operates on a principal of “high accountability, high support,” enfolding students in a tight, supportive community while challenging them with a rigorous academic program. Jenna Kalin, School Director, other faculty, and students explain what’s unique about their education.
